Clothes dryer fires can happen to anyone. But there is something you can do that will drastically reduce your risk of ever having a dryer fire happen to you. Read on to find out what you need to know.
Along with cleaning the lint filter before every cycle, never put materials that have been used with solvents, oils or wax in dryers, never machine dry foam or rubber goods, check for blockages in vent pipes if drying cycles seem to be taking too long, your clothes are very hot at the end of a cycle or your laundry room is unusually warm when running the dryer. Replace ripped filters or cracked exhaust pipes. Install metal ducts rather than plastic ones that can bend, trapping lint. Having your dryer professionally cleaned every year is recommended.
