Industry Expert Advises to Clean Dryer Vents to Prevent Fire.

New Berlin, WI, April 11, 2015 --( Cleaning dryer vents can save you: time, money, and possibly lives. According to the National Fire Protection Agency, 18,000 structure fires a year in the U.S. are caused by clogged or blocked dryer vents. Also attributed to dryer vent fires: dozens of deaths, hundreds of injuries and one-hundred million dollars in property loss.

“We're coming upon warmer weather; it's the perfect time of year to clean your dryer vents.” -Ryan Gumieny, VP of Flat Rate Home Services

Roughly 60% of lint and debris from your dryer is caught in your lint trap (the trap on top of your dryer that you empty between loads of laundry). The other 40% is exhausted through your dryer vent system. The majority of your dryer vent system is not visible; it's in your wall, floor, or attic. As you know, out of sight can mean out of mind. But, forgetting to maintain and clean dryer vents can lead to higher energy costs, damage to your dryer, or worse - a fire.

“Dryer vent fires are 100% preventable. Having your vents cleaned at least once a year will greatly reduce the risk of fire in your home,” added Ryan.
