Evanston Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Thrilled to Hear about Cook County Schools Dryer Fire Prevention Lesson

The Chicago Wizard is all for educating children about dryer maintenance because the appliance is so simple to use that very young children have no problem operating it

Chicago, IL – The Evanston Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard hopes dryer fire prevention becomes a standard part of the presentation when the local firemen visit children at school during National Fire Prevention Week in October. Mory Matias owns Dryer Vent Wizard, a dryer vent cleaning service working to promote public awareness on the importance of proper dryer maintenance to prevent dryer fires.

During Fire Prevention Week many schools invite their community firefighters into the classroom to teach children about fire safety in their homes. Mory Matias recalled a news article he read a couple years ago where the firefighters’ presentation included cleaning the lint filter after each load to reduce the risk of a dryer fire.

Mory believes children pay attention and remember the valuable lessons taught in these fun and interesting presentations. He recalled an article he read about two young girls leading their grandmother to safety when her clothes dryer caught fire. “This happened the very day the local fire department visited their school so they knew just what to do,” said Matias.

Dryer Vent Wizard ( specializes in dryer vent service while educating the customer by providing tips to help them maintain their dryer between annual visits. Since the appliance is so simple that a young child can operate it, the Wizard believes it makes perfect sense to get this important message out to children as well as homeowners.

Mory hopes dryer vent cleaning will be added to the fire safety programs this year. “Children often come home and tell their parents about what they learn from these special presentations. Maybe they will remind mom to have the dryer vent cleaned when they see her doing laundry during National Fire Prevention Month.”

Mory Matias is the Chicago Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard and he encourages people to show spirit during National Fire Prevention Month. Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, a tragedy that occurred in 1871. The 2,000 acre fire began on October 8th and done most of its damage on the 9th, leaving over 100,000 people homeless, damaging more than17,000 buildings and causing over 250 deaths.
