Dryer Lint and Fire Risk

Letting dryer lint build up is NOT a good idea.

If you are guilty of this bad habit, break it today.


There are approximately 2,900 clothes dryer fires a year and they cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and 35 million in property loss per year according to U.S. Fire Administration.


Letting lint build up can also increase energy bills because the dryer has to work harder with each spin cycle. Clean your dryer's lint trap before each run and clean the exhaust every 90 days. You can do these tasks relatively easily with a vacuum, but if your vent is clogged, it might be worth calling a dryer vent exhaust technician to clean it for about $125 to $175, according to Angie's List.
