As a homeowner, it is crucial that you recognize the importance of regular duct and vent cleanings to keep your home, family and pets safe from health and fire hazards. Dryer lint is incredibly flammable and can cause unexpected, devastating and deadly dryer fires.
The U.S. Fire Administration states that:
- 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss
- The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them (34%)
- More home clothes dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months, peaking in January
It’s important to note that even if you empty the lint tray in your dryer in between uses, small amounts of lint will continue to pass through the filter and accumulate in the vents. Dryer vent cleaning is essential for both safety and economic reasons. A clean dryer vent significantly reduces the risk of dryer vent fire while allowing your dryer to operate at peak efficiency, thereby reducing utility costs.
