Dangers of Dryer Vent Lint Build-Up

Clogged vents, ducts, and filters are the primary cause of dryer fires. According to the U.S. Fire Administration: 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause $435 million property loss.

    • Clean the lint filter before and after each load of laundry. 
    • Keep the area behind the dryer free of lint.
    • Do have the vent duct cleaned regularly.  
    • Most plastic, rubber, and foam items are generally not suited for clothes dryers.
    • Have gas-powered dryers inspected every year by a professional to ensure that the gas line and connection are together and free of leaks.

Taking the time to reduce the chance of a dryer fire is time well spent.
