You never know what catastrophe may be prevented by scheduling a professional dryer vent cleaning. This commonly-used appliance in your home could pose a threat to the safety of your household without you even realizing it. At Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning, we want to educate you on the importance of having your dryer vent regularly cleaned. Let us go over the dangers that could be lurking within your dryer and how to prevent them.
Prevent a House Fire
According to FEMA, there are almost 3000 dryer fires reported each year, and these result in what they estimate to be about five deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. The primary cause of these fires is failure to clean the dryer. Dryer lint is highly flammable and can build up along with other debris inside your dryer. This reduces the airflow and backs up the exhaust air into a hot dryer, creating a dangerous combination.
Prevent a Carbon Monoxide Leak
Unfortunately, fires are not the only risk that your clothes dryer can pose to your home. Clogged vents in a gas dryer can cause a whole other dangerous threat. Gas dryer vents release carbon monoxide, which can create a dangerous buildup if the vent is clogged. Don’t put your home or your family at risk, since these potential dangers can be avoided with a dryer vent cleaning.
