The importance of cleaning dryer vents!

According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer fires each year. Home dryer fires cause $35 million in property loss and can even cause injury or death. To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home, SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill can help clean dryer vents and air ducts that may have lint buildup or other blockages.  

Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean from the National Fire Protection Agency include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load, making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird’s nest or other potential obstacles on a regular basis.  

Don’t risk the safety of your family and home! For more information on cleaning dryer vents and air ducts, contact SERVPRO® of Charles County, 301.753.8313 or SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill, 301.292.4447 today!
