Clogged dryer vents are the number one cause of dryer fires. Every year there are more than 18,000 structure fires caused by clogged or blocked dryer vents according to the National Fire Protection Agency.
It’s important that you clean the dryer vent often since lint buildup happens quickly.
It’s not enough to clean the lint screen after every load. You can’t see more than 98% of the dryer vent. Most of the dryer vent is confined inside the walls, floor joist, crawl space or attic.
Cleaning the dryer vent also helps the energy efficiency of the dryer saving you money.
If you haven’t had your dryer vents thoroughly cleaned in awhile, it’s time. Don’t take the chance of losing your home in a dryer fire.
