Keeping Your DUCTS In A Row

According to the US Fire administration, each year dryers are responsible for over 12,000 fires. It’s bad enough these fires cause $88 million in damages to property.

However, the real tragedy is that dryer fires are to blame for an estimated 300 injuries and 15 deaths each year.

The number one cause of dryer fires is an excessive build up of lint. So, how can you possibly know when your dryer is becoming dangerous? Signs you may need dryer vent cleaning include:

  • loads of laundry taking longer to dry
  • clothes not being fully dry after a normal cycle
  • clothes being hotter than usual after a drying cycle
     
  • condensation on the vent pipe

    Some simple maintenance can greatly reduce the likelihood of you suffering the devastation of a dryer fire. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides the following recommendations to help maintain a safe dryer vent.

    • Continually clean the lint from the vent pipe
    • Do not operate the dryer without a lint filter
    • Clean the lint filter before or after each use
    • Rigid or flexible metal vent pipe should be used (no vinyl)
    • Avoid overloading the dryer
    • Make sure the exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and the outside vent pipe will open when the dryer is operating
