Pompano Beach Dryer Tips

According to the National Fire Protection Association, fires in the laundry room average a total of 15,000 fires per year in the United States. This means that every day 42 families go through the scary event of a laundry room fire. Each year it's estimated that these fires cause approximately $201 million dollars in structure damage. Ranging from small scale fires to large and deadly, laundry room fires pose a threat when it comes to fire safety in your home.

Considering what goes in any given laundry room: water, heat, electricity and flammable items, it's easy to see how fast a fire can happen if the right precautions aren't taken.

It is important to get rid of any lint as soon as possible. Making sure that your laundry room is clear of lint build up lessens the chance of combustible material catching on fire. Don't forget to clean the dryer and washer vent after each use.

Be sure that you have the proper rigid metal or plastic dryer hose vent and outdoor vent. Checking them regularly is also advised.
A final important tip is to never dry clothes that have been exposed to paint, gas, pesticides, cleaning chemicals, or oil in the dryer. The safest way to dry these items is to air dry them.
