Are You Overlooking a Fire Risk in your Home?
Dryer Vents are seldom seen and rarely worried about, but they are a very important part of keeping a healthy and safe home. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission there are over 15,000 home fires a year caused by dirty dryer vents. Lint and debris gets backed up in the vent reducing air flow. This can decrease dryer efficiency and cause fires. While a lot of homeowners are aware of the risks associated with dirty dryer vents not everyone has the time, proper equipment, or know how to keep their dryer vent adequately cleaned.

The Difference between Lint Traps and Dryer Vents
The lint trap is your dryer's first line of defense against lint build up. It is usually clearly marked and easily accessible. Typically it's located right inside the dryer's door or on top of the dryer. The lint trap is used to catch the majority of the lint from your laundry before it gets into your dryer vent. The lint trap should be cleaned out after each dryer use.
Your dryer vent on the other hand is located behind your dryer and is connected to the vent via a flexible silver duct. The dryer vent is the exhaust vent/ducting system that exhausts the heat from your dryer to the outside of your home. During the dryer cycle lint from your laundry can sneak past the lint catcher and begin to build up in your dryer vent, even if you are good about cleaning off your lint catcher every time. In about the span of a year (sometimes less) the lint build up can create a blockage or restrictions in your vent.
