Preventing Dryer Fires in Montgomery & Bucks County PA
Dryer fires cause 100 injuries and cause $35 million in property loss each year, according to the US Fire Administration.
The leading cause of dryer fires? Failure to clean the dryer vent.
As you know, lint builds up in the dryer vent after each use of the dryer. While you clean off the lint screen you can’t clean the vent area without special equipment. The lint that builds up here is highly combustible, which, combined with the ultra hot environment of a dryer, makes for a perfect environment for a fire.
