Dryer Duct Cleaning and Fire Prevention Tips Offered by Dryer Vent Wizard
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 01, 2012 ) Warren MI dryer duct cleaning is the number one defense against dryer fires. Clothes dryers are the most likely appliance to start a fire, with over 17,000 dryer related fires occurring annually.
The Wizard recalls reading about an early morning dryer fire that caused over 150,000 in property damage and left a family of six homeless. Thankfully, they escaped safely, but their devastating loss could have easily been prevented through proper dryer duct cleaning service.
Residents were asleep when the fire started. A clogged dryer vent caused the dryer to overheat and materials stored nearby to ignite. The fire spread up the wall and into the attic, causing significant smoke damage to the home. Dryer duct cleaning should be performed regularly to prevent dryer related hazards.
