Cleaning Dryer Vents
According to FEMA, failure to clean home dryers causes 34% of home dryer fires. Home dryer fires cause $35 million in property loss and can even cause injury or death.
To reduce the risk of these fires happening in your home, SERVPRO® of Midland can help clean dryer vents and ducts that may have lint buildup. We would use our duct cleaning machine to run through the lines to get them looking new and keep you safe.
Other tips for keeping your dryer vents clean from the National Fire Protection Agency include cleaning the lint filter before and after each load and making sure the outdoor vent flap will open and is not restricted by snow, a bird’s nest, or other potential obstacles.
For more information on cleaning dryer vents, contact SERVPRO of Midland at 432-620-0086.
Stay safe please.
