Kentwood Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Explains New Safety Features for Dryers

Dryer manufacturers have introduced a new feature known as “Flow Sense” or “Check Vent” Indicators, a step in the right direction; however, not to be taken for granted

 

 

Kentwood, MI – The Kentwood Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says regular inspections and cleaning are the only way to ensure dryer safety. A new feature added to some clothes dryers, known as “flow sense” or “check vent” indicators is intended to detect and warn about ventilation problems; however, this feature should not be taken for granted. These new devices can help enhance dryer performance, but manufacturers are not calling them safety features.

Greg Longe, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) in Grand Rapids was recently asked about safety features on clothes dryers. He explained, “Dryer vent cleaning is the only way to be completely safe. The new features are a step in the right direction, but don’t count on them! Consumer Reports did a study and the results were inconsistent. Sometimes the indicators worked, sometimes they did not.”

Consumer Reports says these indicators cannot be relied on to alert people to a blocked dryer vent system. All clothes dryers, with or without these new features, should be connected to a metal dryer duct that is vented to the outdoors. “Even the very best clothes dryer, with all the newest features, and a state-of-the-art dryer vent system, will require dryer vent cleaning periodically,” said Longe.

According to the Wizard, newer isn’t always better. A good clothes dryer can range from $500 – 1,200, with custom programming and automatic dry sensors to improve efficiency. “It is not necessary to buy the most expensive model,” said Longe. “The most important part of a clothes dryer’s function is the dryer vent system. Without proper ventilation, even the very best dryer will not function properly.”

The 5th floor suffered severe damage and damage was also done to the 4th and 6th floor apartments.

Greg Longe owns Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com), specializing in all dryer vent exhaust issues while working to encourage public awareness on the danger of clogged dryer vents. “Clogged dryer vents are a major fire hazard,” said Longe. “Lint build-up in dryer vents is the leading cause of over 17,000 dryer fires that are reported annually.”
