Dryer Vent Safety + efficiency

Clothes dryers are a major source of structural fires. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission 15,500 clothes dryer fires occur annually.

The leading cause of home fires involving a washer and dryer is failure to clean. Warning signs of dangerous lint build up in your dryer/venting system include:

Clothes take longer to dry or don’t dry fully

Clothes are hotter than normal at end of dry cycle

Outside of dryer gets very hot

Outside exhaust vent flapper does not open much

Laundry room has burnt smell or is more humid

In case of dryer fire, remember to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency phone number.

How can I prevent dryer fires in my home?

Do not use the dryer without a lint filter and clean the filter before/after each load

Remove lint that has collected around the drum

Rigid/flexible metal venting material should be used to sustain proper airflow

Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and outdoor vent opens

Don’t overload your dryer and keep dryer in good working condition

Make sure the right plug and outlet are used and connected properly

Turn off dryer if you leave home or when you go to bed

Inspect and clean your home’s dryer ventilation system.

Commercial Dryer Vent Safety + efficiency

Commercial dryer vent fires have a 78% higher injury rate than residential dryer fires.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates an average of 3,700 structure fires at hotel or motel properties annually, causing $127 million in damage–9% are dryer related, and most can be prevented with dryer vent cleaning

In addition to fire safety issues, clogged dryer vents are also inefficient and costly. By reducing the lint build-up and debris in your ducts, dryers will not have to work as hard, increasing your dryer’s efficiency and using less energy while operating. A properly maintained dryer vent helps to achieve maximum performance and can extend the life of your dryers – saving energy, time and future repairs.
