Dryer Vent Fire Safety

Why Fire Safety Risks Matter

When debris, excess lint, and even animal nests end up in the dryer vent system, the risk of fire goes up, making regular dryer fire prevention critical. Keeping your dryer vents clean is one of the best ways to avoid a preventable fire which can have lasting consequences.

Maintenance for Vent Fire Prevention:

A dryer related fire occurs every 37 minutes, on average, making proper vent maintenance essential. Dryer vent fire prevention includes inspecting and removing any debris, clogs, or other blockages that will create fire safety risks.

    Dryer Delinting

    Your lint trap and dryer vent are not the only places collecting lint.  Dryer delinting is the process of opening the dryer and cleaning out lint that has escaped the lint trap but not made it into the dryer vent hose. To fully protect yourself and prevent dryer fires, have your dryer delinted.

    Lint Screen and Trap Cleaning

    The dryer's lint trap ensures excess lint is captured and doesn’t create a fire risk. But cleaning the trap every time you run the dryer isn’t all you can do to help prevent dryer vent fires. We recommend having it professionally cleaned to ensure it works as it should.
