Home dryers cause thousands of fires each year. Unfortunately, most homeowners do not understand the potential fire hazards of a clogged dryer vent. Frequent dryer usage can deposit excessive lint in the dryer tube. The extreme heat of the dryer can ignite this lint, sparking a dangerous fire.
In homes with excessive lint in the dryer tube, cleaning the filter is not sufficient. To avoid fire hazards, prevention is key. Cleaning and maintenance is the only way to guarantee your family’s safety.
Excessive lint can also effect your energy bill. Over time, lint build-up slows air flow in the dryer tube, compromising your dryer’s performance.
Even without professional help, you can take a few preventative measures. Make sure the connection between your dryer and air duct is made of flexible metal. Periodically check the connection for potential damage. Also, monitor your dryer’s air flow—you want robust, hot air.
Of course, we recommend yearly dryer vent cleaning by a certified professional with the appropriate equipment.
