Tips for preventing dryer vent fires:

Why do Florida homes need dryer vent cleaning?

Lint causes dryer vent fires

Dryer Vent Cleaning technician removes lint from roof Port Charlotte
  • Dust, clothing fibers and pet hair disperse during the drying process
  • Unfortunately up to 40% of lint gets past the initial screens within the dryer
  • This lint travels into the ductwork, often getting trapped in the vent line within the home
  • Some homes have narrower vent work, based on who their builder was. This requires more frequent upkeep.
  • In addition, Florida humidity causes lint to bind together and harden.
  • Once this lint accumulates, it is extremely flammable.

Dirty Dryer Vents Increase Fire Risk

The National Fire Protection Association NFPA, reports nearly 16,000 home washer and dryer fires each year. These fires cause around 13 deaths, 440 injuries, and $238 million in property loss. Clothes dryers accounted for 92% of the fires. And the leading factor was attributed to a failure to clean, (accounting for one-third of dryer fires.)

Outflippinstanding!! Prompt and professional service. (Arrived one hour from the time of my initial call) Very thorough. David explained everything that he was going to do and more. Cleaned up after his work and didn’t charge a dime more than expected. Didn’t try to “upsell” his work. We will definitely refer him to all neighbors.
