How can a clogged dryer vent cause a house fire?

Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, causing excessive heat build-up. This creates a highly flammable fuel source.

How will I know when to have my dryer vents cleaned?

If you notice heavy clothes such as blue jeans or towels taking a long time to dry, or clothes feel hotter than usual at the end of the cycle, then a clogged dryer vent exhaust is likely the problem.

US Fire Administration recommends that you disconnect, clean and inspect the dryer duct and venting at least every two years.

Some dryer vents may need to be cleaned more often. This will reduce the risk of fire, decrease your electric bill and increase the dryer's efficiency.

Additionally, regular dryer vent cleaning lowers energy costs and helps protect your dryers internal parts from overheating which extends the life of your dryer.
