According to statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in the U.S. in 2010, an estimated 16,800 fires involving clothes dryers occurred, resulting in 236 million dollars in property damage, 380 injuries, and 51 deaths. The leading culprit of dryer vent fires was the failure to clean (32%). Aside from the fire hazard lint-clogged and improperly vented dryer vents present, they can also cause carbon monoxide poisoning. You can prevent yourself from becoming the victim of a dryer fire or carbon monoxide scare by having your dryer vents regularly checked and cleaned by a professional.
