A fire in one’s home can be very damaging. The scars it leaves–both emotionally and physically– last forever. One of the most common causes for house fires are dryer related.
More than 15,000 dryer related fires occur a year, amounting to over $80 million in property damage. This statistic can be erased, or at least drastically lowered, by simply monitoring our dryers every once in a while.
Dryers emit a great deal of heat when in use. That steamy air that it creates has to be properly vented. The dryer hose, if not cleaned out periodically, can have a build-up of lint. When combined with the heat, that lint build-up can spark a fire. Luckily, cleaning a dryer hose is very simple and very effective.
