Dryer Vent Cleaning – Avoid Being One Of The 16,000 Annually

Fact:  Did you know that dryer vents are the Number One cause of all household fires? – Source, National Fire Protection Agency.

In fact, dryer vent fires are responsible for over 16,000 fires annually resulting in over $230 million in damages.

Dryer vent fires are caused by an ignition of built-up lint that spreads into the vent tubing leading through the walls of the home.  Lint is highly flammable and if not removed, is a fire waiting to happen.

Dryers are vented into the walls of our homes and can travel long distances with bends in the tubing.  These bends create additional places where lint can accumulate, and birds, mice, and other rodents can build nests if they can enter where the vent exits the roof.  Most people don’t give a second thought to dryer vents, even though this is the Number One place where a fire can start.
