Dryer Vent Safety – Don’t let your dryer start a fire, keep your home safe!
There are 15,000 fires caused every year by dryer vents. If it takes more than one cycle to dry, you need to clean your dryer vent.
A full load of wet clothes contains about a half gallon of water. Lint is created from the clothes as water is removed during the drying process.
This lint will build up in crevices deep down inside the lint filter trap, and all along the dryer vent hose.
Excessive lint build up occurs slowly and gradually and is the number 1 source of fire in the home. Simply cleaning out the lint filter after each use does not protect you.
