Cleaning Dryer Vents May Prevent Fires
The Importance of Cleaning Dryer Vents.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), failing to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer fires. Home dryer fires cause $35 million in property loss and can even cause injury or death.
To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home or business, SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties can help clean dryer vents and ducts that may have lint buildup.
Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load and making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird's nest, or other potential obstacles.
