Newington Homeowners Commit to Regularly Scheduled Dryer Vent Cleaning Service by the Wizard

Once on the Wizard’s list, customers receive a reminder when dryer vent service is due


Newington, CT – The Newington Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard urges homeowners to add dryer vent cleaning to their seasonal home maintenance schedule. With the rising cost of energy, Dryer Vent Wizard, a national dryer vent cleaning franchise, is educating consumers on dryer safety and efficiency. Owner, John Moffat said, “Clothes dryers are among the top five residential energy users. They are also the most likely appliance to cause a fire.”

According to Moffat, poorly vented dryers cost substantially more money to operate. He explains to all his customers how airflow is the main issue with clothes dryers. Adequate air flow is required for clothes dryers to function properly. Restricted air-flow puts undue stress on the dryer motor as it labors to dry your laundry. Dryer vent lint cleaning promotes airflow to reduce energy bills, avoid unnecessary repair bills and eliminate a fire hazard.

Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, causing deaths, injuries and nearly $200 million in property damage. Many who are fortunate enough to escape without injury are left homeless. Regularly scheduled dryer vent maintenance service by Dryer Vent Wizard ( can eliminate a fire hazard and improve dryer performance.

Combining quality service with education, John Moffat makes sure his customers understand how lint accumulation causes a fire. Lint is particles of clothing made of cotton and polyester. When the flammable material builds up in the dryer duct it restricts air flow and prevents the dryer from expelling heat and moisture from tumbling laundry. Eventually, the blockage will lead to overheating or mechanical failure which can trigger a spark causing the lint to ignite and burst into flames. The Wizard recommends professional dryer vent cleaning to eliminate a fire hazard and save energy.

John Moffat advises consumers to have an inspection performed by a qualified dryer vent service specialist to be sure their dryer vent system meets safety standards. The Wizard provides professional dryer vent installation using solid metal dryer ducts according to current safety standards.
