A clogged dryer vent can lead to a fire, but many people don't realize the importance of cleaning vents and lint traps regularly.
Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up and result in a fire in some dryers.
Dryer Vent Cleaning can significantly reduce the risk of a dryer vent fire while improving the efficiency of the dryer which in turn contributes to lowering your utility costs.
According to the Fire Department, your dryer vent should be cleaned professionally at least once a year.
Warning signs to watch for: dryer getting hotter than normal, clothes taking longer to dry and if the dryer is cutting off before the clothes are dry.
