Great article from Mr. Vac:

Why do you need to get your vents cleaned?

There’s a hidden fire hazard in almost every home…THE DRYER VENT!

The Facts:

In 1997 the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission reported:

  • 16,800 residential fires were caused by a clothes dryer or dryer vent.
  • Over 97 Million in damage was caused by these fires.
  • Over 400 civilian injuries were caused by these fires.

The Cause:

  • Dryer vents filled with lint that sneak by the dryer filters.
  • Fires can occur as lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct.
  • Lint can block the flow of air, causing extensive heat build up, sometimes resulting in a fire.

Benefits of Regular Dryer Cleaning:

    • Reduce fire risk
    • Use less energy, and dry clothes faster
    • Extend the life of your dryer
