AVOIDING FIRES WITH DRYER VENT CLEANING MAINTENANCE

BY: RICK WILES

Every year there are an estimated 15,000 residential fires that are caused by clothes dryers in North America. These unfortunate fires lead to over a dozen deaths and over 100 million dollars in property damage every year.

It is preventable with a little bit of maintenance. As a bonus, it also helps your dryer perform better.

Dryer Lint is one of the most flammable materials in your home. What makes it so dangerous is that it is usually extremely dry, with lots of room for oxygen to fuel the fire. It just takes one little spark before things go up in flames.

Most people think that all they need to do is clean out the lint trap on their dryer between loads. This is important, but it’s just the first place that lint gets trapped. Lint still makes it through your venting system. It builds up and blocks airflow. This needs to be cleaned at least once a year. You wouldn’t store gasoline in your house, why leave the flammable lint?
