Clogged Dryer Vents Are Fire Hazard

Dryer Vents Can Be A Fire Hazard

ABC news recently had an article about the danger of clogged dryer vents.

“According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers.  Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard. ”

A sure sign of a clogged vent is your dryer taking longer than one cycle to dry your clothes. The heat and moisture from the drying cycle cannot escape from the dryer, so the clothes do not get dry. In addition, the longer the vent, the greater the chance of a clog and the increased chance of fire.
