Dryer Fires: Causes and Prevention

There are more than 15,000 dryer fires a year in the U.S. that may be prevented through proper dryer maintenance. Lint builds up beyond the lint filter. Lint can clog the dryer vent system causing overheating that may lead to a fire. Have your dryer vent system cleaned once a year and make sure the proper materials were used during installation to prevent a dryer fire.
