About the Wizard

The Dryer Vent Repair Wizard of Vallejo

Gina M. Fazil is a franchise owner/operator of Dryer Vent Wizard (DVW), Dry Clothes, Safe Homes, a home service franchise based in Sacramento, CA. Gina M. Fazil purchased the rights to franchise DVW in August 06 of Franchise Being Awarded.

Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer fire prevention and “urgent response” dryer and vent maintenance, repair, replacement and alterations. DVW services keep dryers functioning properly, prevent dryer fires and reduce energy costs.

Prior to becoming a Dryer Vent Wizard franchisee, Fazil , former Store Owner in downtown Sacramento traded her store front for a logo-gina uniform to own and operate a Dryer Vent Wizard, Safe Homes, Dry Clothes (DVW), franchise in Greater Sacramento and surrounding areas.

When Fazil decided she didn’t want to go back into retail sales and not quite ready to retire, she looked into franchising. Having been in sales most of her career she thought what an opportunity to spread the word out to the consumer on the danger of dryer fires. She researched several concepts and found Dryer Vent Wizard Dry Clothes, Safe Homes. Despite the funny name, Fazil found the concept intriguing.

“I liked that DVW provided much needed solutions to consumers’ dryer and dryer vent problems which ultimately prevents dryer fires,” says Fazil.

According to Fazil, consumer response to DVW has been positive, although a big part of what she does is educate the consumer. “When consumers find their dryer taking more than one cycle to dry a load, they assume it’s mechanical when the real problem is lint accumulation in the dryer vent causing the dryer to work inefficiently and become susceptible to a dryer fire,” says Fazil.
