Press Release Summary: Bryan Linz asks: Do you know what is lurking in your dryer

Press Release Body: York, PA -- An imminent and growing danger may be lurking in
your crawl space, basement, or laundry room: the potential for a dryer vent fire. Up
to 15000 dryer vent fires occur in the U.S. each year with devastating results.
Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning and repair franchise serving Central
Pennsylvania, specializes in the cleaning and repair of dryer vents, in residential
and commercial buildings, to reduce and eliminate dryer vent fires.

"I am happy to bring this important service to the community where my family and
friends live," said Bryan Linz, owner of the new Dryer Vent Wizard of Central
Pennsylvania. "By providing this service, we are doing our part to help keep our
community safe from clothes dryer fires. Purchasing a Dryer Vent Wizard franchise
has been a very rewarding career change for me"

According to Bryan, many dryer vents are not up to code because they are made of
vinyl, plastic or foil. These flexible dryer vents sag, or are bent and crushed when
people attempt to push their dryers closer to the wall. This results in restricted
air flow when moist lint and hot air cannot escape to the vent outdoors. As the lint
builds up over time, it creates a highly flammable clog that could ignite from the
extreme heat of a running dryer. "If your dryer is taking more than one cycle to dry
your clothes, this is a warning sign of a fire hazard," explained Linz. "A fire can
be easily prevented by having a dryer vent specialist inspect your dryer vent system
and replace old plastic or foil vents with new, rigid metal vents that comply with
current building codes and UL safety standards. This will also save money in energy
consumption costs as a proper vent system will allow a dryer to function more
