Take the guesswork out of knowing when to clean your dryer vent

Most homeowners are unaware that throwing a load of laundry into the dryer can be as volatile as tossing a lighted match onto a pile of old newspapers. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission more than 16,000 dryer fires occur each year causing death, injury and more than $97 million in property loss.

Lack of maintenance is the leading cause of dryer fires. The most common problem is lint build-up blocking proper airflow, causing the flammable lint to ignite and overheated dryer parts to catch fire. Cleaning the lint trap after every load helps, but is a small step toward proper maintenance. To ensure home safety and reduce energy costs, dryer vents require a thorough cleaning at least four times a year, more often in homes with large families and heavy usage.
