Clogged Dryer Vents are a Leading Cause of Home Fires
According to statistics provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, clothes dryers account for approximately 15,600 structure fires a year, including injuries and death in some cases.
Lack of proper maintenance is the leading cause of dryer fires. Over time lint builds up in the dryer air duct which restricts airflow and causes overheating. This is not only a fire hazard but will cause your dryer to operate inefficiently and create higher energy bills.
