It is estimated that 14,000-15,000 house fires are started by dryer machines each year according to the National Fire Protection Association. It is very important to get your dryer vent cleaned each year by a professional, but here are some other tips to help prevent your home from being a statistic.
1. Clean your Lint Filter after EVERY load cycle. This will also help your load of clothes/towels to dry quicker.
2. If you spill anything on your clothes such as oil, gas, or anything flammable; then make sure you hand wash and also hang to dry.
3. Pick up excess lint that has fallen off around the dryer machine and especially near the vents.
