The Importance of Cleaning Dryer Vents
According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer-related fires. Home dryer fires causes $35 million in property loss and can even cause possible injury or death. To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home or business, SERVPRO can help clean your dryer vents and ducts that may have lint buildup. Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load and making sure the outdoor vent flap opens correctly and is not restricted by snow, a bird's nest, or other potential obstacles.
