According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), each year there thousands of dryer fires are caused by clogged dryer vents. To avoid this, homeowners should have their dryer hoses and vents cleaned once a year. Stanley Steemer’s professional technicians are trained to effectively clean your dryer vents and ducts in order to prevent dryer fires in your home.
The removable lint screen in your dryer is designed to capture most of the link that is generated from drying clothes. It should be checked and cleaned on a frequent basis. However, over time, lint will find its way past the lint screen and into the duct. If allowed to accumulate, it can cause a blockage, trapping hot air which can ignite a fire in the appliance. If you have noticed that your clothes are abnormally hot at the end of a cycle, this is an indication that your duct needs cleaning. In many cases, these fires caused serious injuries and have been responsible for the deaths of many.
