The Broward County dryer vent cleaning Wizard warns residents about dryer fires and holiday lights. What could they possibly have in common? Both can be a fire hazard.

Horatio Chiorean, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Horatio can never say enough about dryer vent cleaning; however, he is speaking today on another important holiday safety issueChristmas lights.

Like dryer vents, some holiday decorations and lights can create a fire hazard that many people are not aware of or they just don't give it much thought. Old Christmas lights with frayed cords and broken sockets can overheat and cause a fire. Make sure the clothes dryer is operating safely and efficiently by calling Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningfortlauderdale.blogspot.com/) for an inspection and service.

The frequency of residential fires increases during the fall and winter months. Some of these fires are caused by the beautiful Christmas lights that most people believe to be harmless. Clean dryer vents to prevent dryer fires and follow these tips from the Wizard to prevent fires caused by holiday lights:

Choose lights that are safety tested by a reputable laboratory, for example UL (Underwriters Laboratories) or ETL (Electrical Testing Laboratories). This information will be noted on the packaging the lights come in if they are deemed safe by these laboratories.

Use the mini lights; the older style, larger bulbs burn much hotter. Choose lights that have fuses in the plugs.

Check lights before hanging them each year; look for broken sockets, loose connections and frayed or bare wire.

Check the wattage when replacing burned out bulbs.

For outdoor decorating, check the package to be sure the lights can be used outdoors. Plug outdoor decorations into a GFCI outlet and secure lights with insulated holders, not tacks or nails.

In joining efforts with the NFPA, Dryer Vent Wizard is providing advice to consumers to minimize the risk of dryer fires and those caused by old holiday lights. The number one tip from the Wizard is to never leave the house or go to sleep when the dryer is running and the holiday lights are on.
