Dryer Exhaust Vent Cleaning: Failure to Clean Dryer Vents is the Number one Cause of Dryer Fires

The US Fire Administration indicates clothes dryer fires as the cause of approximately 15,500 fires each year, causing major property damage, injuries, and about 15 deaths per year. The USFA identifies “failure to clean dryer vents” as the number one cause of clothes dryer fires. Owners should clean lint traps with each use and clean dryer vents annually, to avoid fire hazards.

The importance of cleaning your dryer exhaust and dryer vent system cannot be stressed enough. In addition to performing regular dryer vent cleaning, consumers can check the effectiveness of dryer exhaust systems by removing the dryer vent tube and drying one or two loads of clothing. If drying time improves with the dryer duct removed, then dryer vent cleaning is necessary to improve drying time. Clogged dryer vents increase drying time and cause your dryer to use more energy. Clogged dryer ducts also causes the dryer to heat up beyond normal operating temperatures, placing severe stress on electrical components and blowing much hotter air onto the trapped lint. Because lint is highly flammable, the increased heat creates a dangerous fire hazard.
