Homeowner Safety Tip: Preventing Dryer Fires
There’s a less-than-obvious fire hazard in almost every home, lurking in your laundry room. It’s the dryer vent. As time goes by, your dryer vent slowly fills with lint passing through your dryer’s lint trap. Fires can occur when lint particles build up in the dryer or exhaust duct. Lint blocks the flow of air and causes the build-up of excessive heat, which can result in a fire. In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that more than 15,000 dryer-related fires occur each year, causing $97 million in property loss.
What can you do to protect yourself and your family from a dryer vent fire?
I’ll include a dryer vent check in my fall home maintenance checklist in just a few short months. If I can serve your real estate needs in any way, or if you know someone who would benefit from my professional expertise, reach out to me anytime via email or phone: (512) 694-9769.
