Does Your Dryer Smell Like Fire?

For many homeowners, “out of sight, out of mind” is a statement of faith—until something goes wrong. As CNBC reports:“about 1 in 15 insured homes has a property damage claim in a given year,” yet prevention measures can help homeowners avoid expensive oversights(Source).

One simple measure, cleaning the dryer vent, is unfamiliar to many homeowners. Yet, as the Reading Eagle reports: “Failure to clean out the vent can have dire consequences, including a house fire or carbon monoxide poisoning” (Source).

In fact, dryers cause thousands of fires each year—at an annual cost of $238 million in property damage (Source).

The number one cause of dryer fires is clogged dryer vents. G&G Indoor Air Services of Philadelphia recommends one obvious solution to this problem, dryer vent cleaning, at least every two years. Certain households (larger households or those with more frequent usage) may require more frequent cleaning.

  1. Inefficiency: An inefficient dryer, which takes an hour or more to dry a normal-sized load, is likely suffering from a clogged dryer vent.
  2. Heat: Heat is supposed to stay inside the dryer, filtering out (with lint) through the vent. If the outside of your dryer is hot to the touch, your vent is likely clogged.
  3. Burning smell: Believe it or not, you may be smelling “micro-fires” of lint. This is a definite sign you need to clean your dryer vent.
