Preventing Dryer Fire With Maintenance
Dryer Fires are common all year round and simple cleaning maintenance can help prevent them. Keeping your dryer vents clear and free from lint plays an important part in fire prevention. Did you know lint is extremely flammable? People keep lint from there lint screens and keep it in bags so they can later use it to start fires in fireplaces, outdoor fire pits and campfires. This is a wonderful technique, especially for outdoor fire building. However; since it is extremely flammable, keeping it in your dryer can cause problems. Lint build up can become hot and ignite a fire. Keeping your lint screens clear and having a cleaning on dryer vents will help. Some people do not want to call upon SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere to have their dryer vents cleaned because there is a cost associated with this. In the long run simple maintenance out weighs the risks.
