These brave Dryer Vent Wizard mud warriors are raising funds once again to donate to the Children's Burn Foundation, a non-profit organization "dedicated to providing support services for child burn survivors, ages 0-18 and their families.” Burn victims are particularly important to Dryer Vent Wizard, as our mission is to keep people safe from fires created by clogged dryer vents. We greatly appreciate any and all donations you can make to support this cause!

Did you know that there are alternative uses for your seemingly useless dryer lint?

Who knew the dusty remnants of dried laundry could have a second life outside of the lint trap and dryer vent. Used dryer lint is perfect for crafting, absorbing spills, and will create the best campfire for making s’mores. So, before tossing out your dryer lint, consider upcycling it into something fun and useful this summer.

Here are a few things you can do with

When the discussion of allergies comes up, it is easy to think of the more common allergens like pollen, dust, and peanuts. While these are quite popular, did you know there are a number of hidden allergens in homes that can cause a host of respiratory issues and, in extreme cases, death?

A clogged dryer vent is a breeding ground for hidden allergens, but never fear! We want to help you identify some of the causes we regularly see:

Dryer vent systems aren’t as simple as they look, trust us. They can be quite complex and often differ from one property to another. Our dedication to safeguarding your home from dryer fires requires a thorough inspection of your system before we can offer you a price quote. What does that entail? Let us explain:

Inspection

Your system is more than just a lint trap! There are vent lines, joint connections, a termination point, and lint inside the dryer that you can’t see. Our

As homeowners, we already have so many things to think about that we often take for granted the inner workings we can't see: the pipes under the sink, gutters, and of course, the dryer vent. While a dryer vent may seem like a simple necessity, it has surprising depth (often literally) and requires diligent maintenance. So, what makes them so complex?

For the fourth consecutive year, Dryer Vent Wizard, North America's leading dryer vent maintenance and repair franchise, has awarded 10 grants of $500 each to local fire prevention programs in the U.S. and Canada through its annual Fire Department Grant Contest. 

During the Grant Contest, Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees are invited to nominate fire departments in their communities that conduct

Ever wondered where that sock disappeared to? If both went into the dryer, how did one escape? Did you think to have the dryer vent checked? It just so happens that the dryer vent is a secret trove of lost treasures. Our Dryer Vent Wizards have found an abundance of bizarre items stuffed deep in dryer vent lines.

We’ve checked our archives and, after much deliberation (and a few chuckles), have narrowed the various odd dryer vent discoveries to our top 5 favorites.

The risk of home fires soars during cold winter months. To help protect the community, Dryer Vent Wizard of Northern Nevada nominated the Reno Fire Department to receive a $500 Dryer Vent Wizard Fire Prevention Month grant. Due to the Reno Fire Department's excellent community outreach efforts and fire education programs, we're thrilled to select them as one of this year's grant recipients! 

I never knew being black and blue could make me so happy!

After 17 months of losing weight and nine months of intense training that took me from an overweight sedentary individual to successfully participating in a Tough Mudder, I couldn’t be more sore or happier. On June 3, the Dryer Vent Wizard Corporate team made up of Jason Kapica, Mike Donnelly, me, and 6 brave friends and family members ran the Michigan Tough Mudder to help raise funds for the Children’s Burn Foundation.

66 is not typically the age at which people begin training for a 10+ mile, military-style obstacle course. But, that’s exactly what I did. In December 2015, I changed my habits, got fit, and dropped 65 pounds. On June 3rd, after 9 months of intense training, I will run in the Tough Mudder Challenge.

Sustaining habit changes hasn’t always been easy, but it has been an excellent learning experience. While Dryer
