In fact, most dryer vent fires are caused when there is a clogged line in the dryer and it can’t exhaust properly. When the dryer overheats it can cause the flammable lint to combust, which in turn causes a house fire. To prevent this from happening, your dryer line should be cleaned and maintained yearly by a qualified professional.

There are many warning signs that signal a dangerous level of lint build-up in the dryer, and means your dryer needs to be cleaned:

1. Your clothes are taking way longer to dry, or you need a couple of cycles to get them completely dry.

2. The clothes happen to come out very hot or the dryer is very hot at the end of the cycle.

3. The exhaust vent flapper doesn't open all the way, which is an indication of a low exhaust velocity.

4. The laundry room is very humid or has a burnt smell in it.

If you happen to notice any of these warning signs, stop using the dryer immediately and call our team at Power Vac. Just recognizing these symptoms could save you and your family from the dangers of a home fire and not keeping up with a regular maintenance routine. Make sure you book an appointment for a professional cleaning with better equipment and processes that will ensure your dryer is safe to use.
