Firefighters respond to nearly 16,000 home fires annually caused by dryers, according to the National Fire Protection Association*
Clogged dryer vents cause thousands of house fires annually and are the No. 1 cause of appliance-caused fires in homes. Unfortunately, homeowners often ignore or don’t recognize the signs of a clogged dryer vent until it’s too late. Your home and your furniture, valuables and keepsakes could go up in flames.
The best way to prevent house fires from starting in or around your dryer is to have your dryer vent regularly serviced and maintained by Dryer Vent Squad.
