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!
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.
