Portland, Oregon – July 5th, has started collecting registrations from local independent living senior citizens to receive a free dry vent cleaning service visit in the next 12 months.

Brian A. Dawson, life long resident of Portland Oregon and owner of Dryer Tech has decided he wanted to give back to his community by helping senior citizens working with limited monthly budgets ensure their clothes dryer system is free of flammable lint.  The National Fire Protection Service Association (NFPA) suggests people get their dryer vent cleaned annually or risk a fire.  “I was tired of seeing seniors struggle with the decision between paying for food or getting their dryer vent cleaned: so I decided to clean their vent for free.” said Brian. is using social networking and their website to collect registrations and encourage family members, friends, and independent senior citizens to visit and sign-up to receive a free service call.  “We will not sell your contact information,” said Ed Bejarana, web master for  Bejarana is a US Army Veteran friend of Brian’s who volunteered to setup and manage the website for Brian to help reach as many seniors in the Portland Oregon Metro area as possible.

The way the service will work is a senior will register for a free dryer vent cleaning and they will be scheduled along with other paying customers in the same neighborhood.  “The service is 100% for seniors registered in the program” said Brian A. Dawson.  “They just need to get signed up.”

Since there is more demand than available free service spots, will provide a first come first free service to seniors and once the service is performed they will need to sign-up again to receive a free cleaning again next year.

“I hope to one day be able to offer this service all across America,” said Brian, “but we are going to start right here in the Portland Metro area first.” is a registered business division of Dawson Enterprises Inc. which also owns and operates Dryer Tech.  Dryer Tech is based out of Oregon City.  All technicians with are licensed, bonded and insured.
