Each year, there are approximately 15,500 dryer fires, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. These fires result in 10 injuries and 10 deaths. Hundreds of people are also subjected to carbon monoxide poisoning as the result of improperly installed dryer vents.
While faulty appliances are to blame in some instances, may occur as the result of improper venting setups and dirty dryer vents.
Clogged dryer vents also cause less severe problems, like increased drying times and decreased efficiency that could drive up your electric or gas bill. Fortunately, there’s a solution. With professional dryer vent cleaning, you can rest assured knowing that your dryer is safe and efficient.
HOW TO AVOID CLOTHES DRYER FIRES
Prevent fires by investing in professional dryer vent cleaning!
Today’s dryers push lint from clothing and other items out through a vent located in the back of the appliance. This vent commonly clogs and can lead to problems ranging from increased energy bills to deadly fires.
In modern homes, dryers are often installed far away from exterior walls, and a long dryer vent is needed. Unfortunately, the farther the lint has to travel, the more likely it is for clogs to occur. Longer vent runs are also more difficult for homeowners to clean.
As lint builds up in a dryer vent, it becomes a serious fire hazard. To avoid this hazard, you need to make sure your vent is clean and free from buildup.
