Dryer Vent Fires
When was the last time you had your clothes dryer vent cleaned? Dryer lines get clogged due to moisture and lint from materials. Not only does this affect the level of the performance of the dryer and how it dries the materials that you put in it, but it is a danger to you and your family. According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 17,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. These clothes dryer fires cause around 51 deaths, 380 injuries, and $236 million in property loss. Unsurprisingly, the leading cause of these fires, at 34%, is the failure to clean dryer vents.
