Is Your Dryer Vent Safe?
There’s a hidden danger spot in most homes today. Chances are you don’t look at it or even think about it. It’s the vent from your clothes dryer. Over time, it fills with lint that slips past your dryer’s filter. Overheating results as the lint builds up, and then you’re just a step away from a fire. Sound unlikely?
Alarming facts from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
- Over 15,000 clothes dryer fires occur each year.
- These dryer fires result in approximately 20 deaths, 370 injuries and over $75 million in property damage annually.
- The high-limit thermostat may prematurely fail when subjected to high ambient temperatures. After a significant build up of debris in the dryer vent hose, the dryer overheats and the lint catches fire. Combustibles in the immediate vicinity then help fuel the fire.
Unlike many health and safety issues we are faced with in the home, this safety problem has an easy and economical solution. The best way to prevent the possibility of a dryer fire harming your home and family is with a thorough dryer cleaning by the professionals at Doodlebuggers.
Another issue that may impact the safety of your dryer venting system is the components of the system itself. Not many people routinely check their vent line and termination caps and most wouldn’t really know what they were looking for if they did. Pipe can become damaged, caps can break and a ground termination that used to be perfectly placed can now sit underground with normal house settling. During every dryer vent cleaning our technicians will inspection your venting system to make sure that everything is in working condition and that it is capable of performing the way that you need it to.
And if you do need repairs? Our certified technicians can perform a variety of on site repairs and our office staff can quote out anything they can’t do that day for you to have done when you’re ready.
The final big issue is that some installers and builders don’t really know what to look for in a dryer vent. They don’t have the certifications that our technicians do and they might not know the best practices of putting a dryer vent in. They have a lot on their plate and sometimes, something gets missed or the wrong part gets installed. We’ve seen everything from flex lines running more than 40 feet through an attic to an oven exhaust cap installed on a roof that was packed with enough lint to make a blanket! We know our dryer vents and can solve just about any installation issue to get your dryer vent into fighting shape in no time! Dryer vents that exceed 25 feet should be properly outfitted with a dryer booster fan. Proper materials including UL listed foil tape, dryer vent clamps, and proper duct lengths and duct runs are also very important. Following the dryer manufacturers instructions as to the proper duct lengths and duct runs is also a good practice.
