How To Prevent A Dryer-Lint Fire and Possibly Save Lives.

How problems can develop

When the lint trap or dryer vent, along with the accompanying ductwork for the exhaust, are not cleaned regularly, the risk of fire increases.

That’s because when lint is trapped in any of these areas, it builds up and can block the flow of air. Fires can then result from excessive heat built-up in these clogged areas of your .

What to look for:

If you notice any of the following warning signs, call us and we’ll provide a free inspection and, if needed, a free estimate.

  • When the dryer is on, the flapper on the vent hood does not open.
  • Clothes removed from the dryer at the end of the cycle are hotter than normal.
  • Clothes (especially jeans or towels) take multiple or longer cycles to dry.


Dryer-vent fires can also be caused by:

  • Improper installation resulting in insufficient airflow
  • Failure of mechanical and/or electrical dryer parts
  • Improper placement of items in the dryer


Fires aren’t the only problem

Overheating caused by reduced airflow and lint build-up can also affect your dryer’s efficiency, thus costing you money.

When safety switches malfunction and exhibit continuous cycles of on-and-off, they can fail over time. Not only will this lead to higher operation costs, but it could also cause an expensive, dangerous fire.
