DETROIT, MI - (Marketwired - Nov 17, 2015) - When Christian Hoehn of Chester, New York, started researching franchises earlier this year to begin his own business, it may have been more than coincidence that he discovered Dryer Vent Wizard (DVW).
Founded in 2004, DVW is a fast-growing franchise that specializes in dryer vent repair, replacement, alteration, cleaning and maintenance for residential and commercial clients.
Only a few weeks before Hoehn's search for a franchise, Hoehn said that water was running down the dryer vent pipe of his townhouse. Following service calls from two different companies, the problem still wasn't fixed, and it was Hoehn who discovered he needed a booster fan which he installed himself.
"When I came across Dryer Vent Wizard, I realized that they provide services I could have used - saving me time and money," said Hoehn. "It didn't take long for me to decide this was the business for me."
Hoehn quickly found that his 15 years' prior experience in sales along with his ability to tackle hands-on projects have served him well since he opened his business in August. His service area includes all of Bergen County in New Jersey, along with Rockland and Orange counties in New York.
In addition to making service calls, Hoehn spends considerable time raising public awareness about the importance of regular cleaning and maintenance of dryer vents for energy savings and fire prevention.
In the U.S., it is estimated that poorly maintained or clogged dryer vents are the leading cause of appliance fires, resulting in more than 15,500 dryer fires every year. These are only the reported cases.
Headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, Dryer Vent Wizard is a member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). DVW's 70 franchisees serve more than 9,000 communities of all sizes throughout U.S. and Canada.
