Dryer Vent Cleaning Clermont Wizard Reminds Homeowners to Observe Fire Prevention Month in October

Fire Prevention Month was established after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871…the Wizard works to promote home fire prevention all year long, with extra effort in the fall season

Clermont FL – The Dryer Vent Cleaning Clermont Wizard is a force for neighborhood safety, especially dryer fire prevention. Firefighters and dryer vent service providers across the nation will join other organizations that step up their efforts to promote fire safety during the month of October.

Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, a tragedy that occurred in 1871. The devastation caused more than 250 deaths and left over 100,000 people homeless as more than 17,000 buildings were destroyed. The 2,000 acre fire began on October 8 and did most of its damage on the 9th.

Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually with clogged dryer vents being the leading cause. Robert Moore, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, works all year to encourage consumers to have their dryer vent inspected and serviced regularly to prevent dryer fires and save energy.

There are many things residents can do to reduce the risk of house fires, including proper dryer maintenance. The clothes dryer is one of the most likely appliances to start a dryer fire; yet it is also the most neglected maintenance among homeowners.

Dryer vent cleaning is recommended annually to remove lint accumulation in the dryer vent and inside the dryer where it can interfere with working parts. Robert Moore tells his customers that flammable lint combined with a small spark from the clothes dryer is a recipe for disaster.

Dryer Vent Wizard is the highest qualified dryer vent service provider in the nation with over 60 Wizards providing commercial and residential dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation in US cities. Robert Moore serves the Orlando area, Clermont, Altamonte Springs, Mt Dora and surrounding areas.
