Have You Cleaned Your Dryer Vent Lately?
Proper maintenance for clothes dryers involves removing the lint from the traps, vents, and surrounding areas of the dryer. Not unexpectedly, the leading factor contributing to ignition for dryer fires is operation deficiencies specifically “failure to clean.” Failure to clean dryer vents accounts for 70% of dryer fires.”
~ US Fire Administration
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that clothes dryers are associated with 15,600 fires yearly. Clothing lint and additional debris can form over time in your clothing dryer vent and may cause your dryer exhaust to be blocked. This creates a potentially hazardous condition that could ultimately lead to a fire.
A blocked or restricted dryer vent does not allow heat and lint particles from your dryer to be exhausted from your home possibly allowing the lint built up in that vent to catch fire. Additionally blocked gas dryer vents could force carbon monoxide back into your living space.
