Will County, IL -- Dryer vent cleaning is very important; yet too often neglected. More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported each year with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause.

When the Wizard reminds his customers about National Fire Prevention Month, some people picture the fire department visiting classrooms to teach fire prevention and fire safety. Dryer vent cleaning companies work to educate homeowners about dryer fire prevention through proper installation and maintenance.

There are many things consumers can do to support National Fire Prevention Month, including purchasing tickets to fundraisers…even if they cannot attend! The money will be put to good use, improving fire departments, training for volunteer fire departments, better equipment and much more. Consumers in Will County can show spirit by scheduling dryer vent cleaning service to eliminate a potential fire hazard in their home.

Joe Enzenberger owns Dryer Vent Wizard (, a company specializing in dryer exhaust services while educating consumers. “He explains how the dryer vent system removes heat, moisture and lint from laundry as it tumbles dry. Neglect of maintenance or improper dryer vent installation will restrict air flow and prevent the heat and moisture from escaping. This will cause the dryer to run longer and hotter, significantly increasing energy consumption and eventually leading to a serious fire hazard.

Joe Enzenberger is CDET certified in dryer vent systems which means he has passed a rigorous exam based on the latest technologies in dryer venting. The certification is optional; however, Joe chose to enhance his education to provide the best service to his customers.
