They were founded in 2004, by David Lavalle in Boston, Massachusetts. DVW is headquartered in Warren, Michigan with 50 franchise locations in the U.S.
The U. S. Fire Administration reports over 15,000 dryer fires annually; most of these tragedies could be prevented with proper dryer vent cleaning and maintenance. About 80% of Americans have clothes dryers, yet most are unaware of the need for annual dryer vent maintenance to keep the dryer running properly and prevent dryer fires. The newer, energy efficient models cause more lint to build up in the dryer vent line. Second story laundry rooms and larger homes require longer dryer vent runs which cause dryers to work harder. In many cases, the dryer vent itself is considered a fire hazard because it doesnt meet building code requirements.
DVW urges consumers to visit their site for valuable information and warning signs of dryer vent clogs to look out for. They also provide a free, downloadable video and brochure loaded with fire prevention tips and information. Most importantly, consumers can get a free dryer vent safety check kit by going to http://www.dryerventwizard.com/ventcheck_request.htm
