The clothes dryer is a modern convenience that comes with a cost…it is one of the biggest energy users in American homes

Folsom, CA – According to the Dryer Vent Cleaning Folsom Wizard too many homeowners forget about it or put off an important home maintenance chore until it is too late. Clothes dryers are among the most expensive appliances to operate, even if they do have the newest “energy saving” features. Clothes dryers, even the newest models, are also the most likely of appliances to cause a fire.

Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. Poorly vented clothes dryers can cost an additional $300 per year to operate. Cleaning dryer vents prevents dryer fires and improves dryer performance and efficiency.
