Dryer vents are the second leading cause of fires in the home. These fires are preventable with proper maintenance. Each year 15,500 fires, 10 deaths and 310 injuries are caused by dryer exhaust fires, a rate so high that it has called for an alert from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Many homes have the clothes dryer and exhaust on an exterior wall with little distance to the outside.There are many others, especially in new construction, that are much longer, improperly installed and represent a real risk of fire. Having your dryer exhaust vent cleaned on a regular basis will reduce the risk of fire, reduce energy costs/utility bills, and reduce drying times. Having a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician clean your dryer vent should be put on your To Do List every year.
