Did you know that d
ryer exhaust fires now surpass creosote (chimney) fires in frequency in the United States? According to the National Fire Data Center, each year dryer fires cause an estimated 15,600 dryer fires, resulting in 99 million dollars of property damage, 400 injuries, and 15 deaths.

Each and every time a dryer is operated, lint is created as water is removed from wet clothing. While much of the lint is caught by the lint filter, lint is also carried through the venting system, together with the moist air. Over time, this lint builds up, and can clog the dryer vent. According to the National Fire Data Center, "the accumulation of lint, both in the dryer and the dryer vent, reduced airflow and created a hidden fire hazard homeowners aren't even aware of." Not surprisingly, some fire departments and insurance companies now require that dryer vents be inspected and cleaned regularly.

Here is a picture of a birds nest I recently pulled out of a customers dryer vent. The amazing thing is that just 2 weeks before, another company had been out to clean the vents, but didn't have the right equipment to remove the major blockages! Not having the right equipment could have cost this homeowner their home, or even their lives.
