DVW Continues To Grow As They Promote Dryer Vent Safety For Area Consumers

August 18, 2008 // Franchising.com // - Greg Longe, co-president of Dryer Vent Wizard (DVW), announced the awarding of a DVW franchise in New York. Local resident and former metal finisher will service 8 counties in Upstate New York from Syracuse to Rochester.

Dryer Vent Wizard is a national franchise company specializing in dryer fire prevention and "urgent response" dryer and dryer vent maintenance, repair, replacement and alterations.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration there are an average of 15,000 dryer fires in the U.S. with an approximate $88 million in property, damage 15 deaths and 400 injuries annually. "Failure to clean" was cited as the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings. Similar reports by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, (CPSC), confirm annual maintenance of dryers and dryer vents as a home safety issue lacking consumer awareness.

Dryer Vent Wizard provides "urgent response" solutions to the problem of dryers functioning inefficiently or not at all.

Founded in 2004 by David Lavalle in Boston, Massachusetts the company has awarded 50 franchises in major metro markets since franchising began in March 2005. Other DVW New York franchise locations besides Upstate include John Riley on Long Island.
