INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR HOME SAFE

-Inspect and clean all lint buildup from the lint filter regularly. It is important to note that over a period of time, dryer vents fill with small particles of lint that pass through or around the lint filter.

-A fire can occur if excessive lint deposits collect in the dryer or the exhaust duct. 

-Lint can actually block the flow of heated air causing excessive heat buildup, which could result in a fire.

-It is estimated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission that there are approximately 15,000 dryer related fires each year.

-Make sure air ducting sections or runs are undamaged.

-Check to be sure that all exhaust dampers open and close easily.

-Inspect dampers monthly, and clean at least one time per year.

Note: If clothes are routinely not getting dry, then check ducting for obstructions or damaged sections.
