If You Don't Clean the Dryer Lint... | San Diego Fire Damage Tips

Posted by Cindy Desmet on Fri, Nov 13, 2015

If You Don't Clean the Lint In and Around Your Clothes Dryer, You Risk a Fire

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are caused every year by clothes dryers. Clean Earth Restorations offers their customers/residents in San Diego fire damage tips that may save a home (and lives).

Facts:

  • A build up of lint in a clothes dryer (in the filter, around the machine, or in the vent hose) traps heat and causes the machine to overheat.
  • The lint itself is flammable and becomes fuel for fire when the machine overheats to the point of causing a fire.
  • It takes only a few minutes for the fire to engulf a laundry room, which typically stores other flammable items such as more laundry.

Tips:

  • NEVER leave your dryer on while you are asleep or not at home!
  • Clean your lint filter EACH time you dry a load of laundry.
  • If you see any lint in the filter holder, clean that out as well.
  • Check BEHIND and around the machine for lint.
  • Replace (flammable) flexible plastic vent hoses with metal vents where possible.
  • Do not stock or store items on top of the dryer. They may enhance the speed and intensity of a fire.

Have a look at the Today Show video below which talks about all these points and interviews a family that lost EVERYTHING when their dryer caught on fire while they were not home.
