Today’s Public Service Announcement. While doing Perimeter pest control, we often see dryer vents like this. Please take a few minutes this weekend and check and clean out your vents and dryer hose.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 17,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. These clothes dryer fires cause around 51 deaths, 380 injuries, and $236 million in property loss. Unsurprisingly, the leading cause of these fires, at 34%, is the failure to clean dryer vents. Please stay safe and Happy Friday!
