Dryer Vent Cleaning – The Wizard of Chicago is all for Teaching the Children

Dryer vent cleaning is a popular topic, among others, during the month of October. This is when we honor National Fire Prevention Month; it is the time of year when the firemen visit the children at school to educate them about home fire prevention.

I’ve read some articles where children put good use to the lessons they learned when they were involved in a home fire. One particular story I remember involved two young girls who helped their grandmother escape safely when her home was on fire. This happened the very day the local fire department visited their school so they knew just what to do.

This story inspires me to suggest adding dryer vent cleaning and maintenance to the children’s fire safety education. Since they obviously listen pretty well when this type of material is presented to them, and some know how to use the clothes dryer, it is important to teach them about dryer lint.

I think children listen to figures of authority, like the firemen visiting their school, better than they do their parents. So, when mom says, “clean the lint screen,” how many do you think really listen? Mom probably doesn’t explain why. If she does, it probably isn’t as much fun to listen to as when the firemen are doing their presentation.

Children often come home and tell their parents what they learned in school. Sometimes relaying what they leaned in school inspires a change in behavior, for example, when they tell mom to quit smoking or dad to quit drinking because it’s bad for their health. Maybe they will remind mom to have the dryer vent cleaned when they see her using the clothes dryer during National Fire Prevention Month, especially if they learn about it from the exciting visit from the firemen.
