Who knew that the dryer vent was one of the most dangerous areas in the house. Failing to clean the dryer vent can lead to a inefficiencies that increase your electric bill, significant wear and tear on your dryer and in the worst cases – fire!
Being a busy professional, I had no idea that one must pull the dryer out from the wall and clean the vent no less than annually. Consequently, I burned the motor out of a dryer because the dryer vent was clogged with lint. Fortunately, I never had a fire which is quite common with dryer lint build up.
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, clothes dryer fires account for about 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries annually. Failure to clean accounts for 70% of dryer fires. In addition to cleaning the vent no less than annually, watch for lengthening clothes drying times as an indicator of trouble.
