The National Fire Prevention Association estimates that in 2010 alone, nearly 15,500 house fires originated with clothes dryers. The leading cause? Dust, fiber, or lint.
Keeping your dryer vents clean is important for a number of reasons which include not only energy savings but safety. If your dryer vent to the outside becomes blocked by lint, the air will not be able to expel moisture like it was designed to do.
Don’t take chances with your home. Call us if it’s been a year or more since your last inspection, or if you notice your dryer is taking longer than usual to dry your clothes.
