Cleaning Dryer Vents
The Importance of Cleaning Dryer Vents
According to FEMA, failure 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 or your insured’s home or business, SERVPRO® of Southern Lancaster County 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 include:
1 -Cleaning the lint filter before and after each load.
2- Making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird’s nest, or other potential obstacles.
