The Importance of Cleaning dryer vents
According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer fires. Home dryer fires cause $35 million in property loss and can even cause injury or death. To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home, SERVPRO® can help clean dryer vents and ducts that may have lint buildup.
Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean from the National Fire Protection Agency include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load of laundry and making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird’s nest or other potential obstacles. It is recommended to check your outside vent flap once a month.
