The United States Consumer Safety Commission issued a special report describing fire hazards due to lint in clothes dryers. Approximately 15,000 fires a year are attributed to excessive lint in dryers and dryer vents. Dozens of deaths, injuries and millions of dollars of property damage result from these fires.
Lint builds up in the dryer and exhaust duct and causes the dryer to overheat. Over time this overheating damages sensitive sensors in the dryer, causing them to fail. This failure can lead to a smoldering fire that can and does destroy homes and businesses.
Before and after pictures show how blocked the vent can become over time:
Your dryer's filter only captures about 60% of the lint that is generated. The rest is pulled through the dryer exhaust system and can be caught in the dryer vent. Duct Works Environmental has all the equipment & experience needed to remove this lint making your dryer efficient and safe again.
If your dryer is gas operated the danger is even greater. Carbon monoxide must exit the home through the vent. If it becomes blocked, carbon monoxide poisoning can happen.
