How to Clean a Dryer Vent
According to the United States Federal
Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, clothes dryer fires are the cause of
15,600 structural fires, 15 fatalities, and 400 injuries annually. Failure to
clean the dryer vent is the number one reason for clothes dryer fires, reports
The good news is that most hazardous dryer fires can be prevented with proper
dryer vent cleaning. Clogged dryer vents or exhaust pipes occur when lint builds
up, which causes the dryer to operate incorrectly. An improperly functioning
clothes dryer can disrupt the flow of air and elevate the temperature of the
dryer enough to ignite or spark lint, debris, or other combustibles, leading to
a clothes dryer fire. New homes are not without risk either, especially if
clothes dryers are placed in more hazardous locations such as on inside walls in
bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms or second-floor hallways.
