Are your dryer vents a fire hazard? If you’ve never cleaned them, they probably are. When you run your dryer, your lint trap doesn’t catch everything. Some lint gets by with every load and sits in your dryer vent. It may get trapped at a bend or fold, or it may gather up at the trap at the end of the vent that keeps birds and bugs from getting inside. Once the lint builds up, hot air from your dryer or static electricity from moving lint can ignite a spark that causes a fire.
The only way to guarantee lint can’t build up in your dryer vent and start a fire is to make sure your dryer vent stays clean. You can help by cleaning your lint trap after every load of laundry, but the inside of your dryer vents is impossible to reach without special tools. Depending on your home’s layout, you may also need to climb up on a ladder or down into a crawlspace to clean out your dryer vents. We have all the tools and equipment needed to clean out your dryer vents quickly and safely so that you don’t need to worry about what you need to do to keep them clean and prevent fires.
