Each year, more than 15,000 homes catch on fire because of dirty dryer vents clogged with flammable lint. It is extremely important to have your dryer professionally inspected and its ducts cleaned at least once a year. This could protect your home and your family from serious risks.
If you notice that your dryer is taking too long to dry clothes, it is time for an inspection. You should also check to see if your dryer is hot to the touch when in use. These signs both indicate that your dryer’s venting system is not allowing for proper air circulation, causing the appliance to work harder. When a dryer heats up excessively, lint buildup can easily ignite. Watch this video to learn more about dryer inspections and safety.
