Clothes DryerDid you know?
  • According to the NFPA, there is an annual average (2006-2010) of 15,520 home fires, 29 deaths, 402 injuries and $192 million in property damage attributed to dryer fires.
  • The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them.

To help prevent fires:

  • Clean the lint filter in your clothes dryer after every use.
  • Clean the dryer vent and exhaust duct periodically.
  • Clean behind the dryer where lint can build up.
  • Replace the plastic or foil, accordion-type ducting material with rigid or corrugate semi-rigid metal duct.
  • Take special care when drying clothes that have been soiled with volatile chemicals such as gasoline, cooking oils, cleaning agents, or finishing oils and stains.
  • Make sure that your clothes dryer is located in an area that has proper ventilation, airflow and enough airspace.
  • You should always turn off your dryer before you leave the house or when you go to bed.
