The Wizard is Interviewed

Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard of Fairfield Interviewed by Chanel 13 News 

The Wizard provides live saving advice for homeowners and vital information to prevent dryer fires


Fairfield CA – Dryer maintenance is the only way to ensure maximum dryer performance while minimizing the risk of dryer fires and other hazards caused by clogged dryer ducts. Dryer vent cleaning is necessary to allow the clothes dryer to expel heat and moisture from tumbling laundry and by sending it outdoors through the dryer duct. The dryer vent also removes gas by products like carbon monoxide with gas dryers.

Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, was recently interviewed on Chanel 13 News where she offered life-saving advice to homeowners after a recent dryer fire was reported. Danger could be lurking in the laundry room if dryer vent maintenance is neglected. Professional dryer vent installation and regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service is vital to dryer fire prevention and energy savings.

Gina also commented on a recent dryer fire where the homeowner expressed how fortunate she was that she didn’t lose everything when her dryer burst into flames. One of the responding firemen explained that most dryer fires are a caused by a clogged dryer duct which restricts airflow and causes the dryer to overheat or throw a spark into the flammable lint which accumulates inside the duct.

Gina Fazil explained how inferior dryer duct material, such as that with vinyl or flexible dryer vent kits, can get bent or crushed allowing the lint to back up into the dryer. Signs that indicate dryer vent cleaning is overdue and a hazardous condition exists include the outside of the dryer getting hot when running or the heating element or fuses burn out. Lint on the inside of the dryer door is another sign of imminent danger.

As one of over 60 Dryer Vent Wizard ( franchises, Gina Fazil works to promote a very important message to homeowners about dryer hazards caused by poor maintenance. Besides being a fire hazard, lint blockage in the dryer vent line causes stress on the dryer, leading to longer drying time, higher energy bills and premature breakdown. Annual dryer vent cleaning service by the Wizard will eliminate problems caused by a clogged dryer vent.

Gina Fazil is a franchise owner/operator of Dryer Vent Wizard, a home service franchise in California. Gina purchased her dryer vent cleaning franchise in Sacramento in August of 2006. Word spread through customer referrals and her business quickly grew to the point of expanding her market area to cover Orange County as well. Visit to learn more.
