Children’s Burn Foundation Welcomes New Corporate Partner, Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

Consumers are encouraged to “give until it stops hurting” to help children who have been badly injured in a fire



 Sterling VA – The Sterling Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard has partnered with the Children’s Burn Foundation during National Fire Prevention Month. As a new and welcome corporate partner and a member of the National Fire Protection Association, the Wizard works to raise public awareness about dryer fire prevention and energy savings. Their most recent mission is to give hope and healing to child burn victims.

Doug and Janice Bittner, owners of Dryer Vent Wizard, invite consumers to visit their website to make an online donation and let the Wizard know about their generosity by entering the keyword ‘DRYER’. For a donation of just $5.00 or more, the Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard will send the donor a wristband with the slogan, “Prevent a Fire, Clean your Dryer.” Visit for details.

The Children’s Burn Foundation has a goal to enable the full recovery of a child burn survivor addressing not only their physical needs, but their psychological, emotional and social recovery as well. The Foundation was founded in 1985 and today, they provide reconstructive treatment, emergency family assistance, survivor and family camps, counseling, a teen support program and prevention and education programs that reach more than 50,000 children and families each year.

Doug and Janice Bittner are thrilled to be part of this mission to help young burn victims while working to increase public awareness of the importance of dryer vent cleaning to prevent dryer fires. They warn consumers that failure to clean dryer vents is the leading cause of dryer performance problems and dryer fires.

Education is a vital part of the Wizards’ service as they provide commercial and residential dryer vent cleaning, repair and new dryer vent installation while offering fire prevention tips to help keep area families safe. October is National Fire Prevention Month and the Wizard steps up the efforts by advising consumers that the frequency of residential fires increases during the fall and winter months.

Customers who have dryer vent service performed by the Wizard enjoy peace of mind that their dryer is operating safely and efficiently. Dryer vent cleaning prevents fires, reduces energy bills, prolongs the life of the dryer, prevents mold and mildew damage to homes, prevents carbon monoxide poisoning with gas dryers and improves dryer performance. Professional dryer vent installation by the Wizard ensures a safe dryer vent system installed according to current building and safety codes to accommodate the dryer manufacturer’s warranty.

Unlike other dryer vent cleaning services, the Wizard spends 2 to 3 hours on each job to be sure everything is done correctly and the job site is spotless when they are finished. The job is not complete until the customer understands how their dryer vent system works and how to be sure it is properly maintained between regularly scheduled service calls. Visit to learn more.
