Dryer Fires in Woodbridge VA – Dryer fires are becoming more and more common. By some estimates there are around 1,200 dryer fires every year. That is a pretty big number in my opinion!
The sad thing is that I see the makings of dryer fires fairly often on home inspections. But with a few simple steps, you can lessen your chances of having a dryer fire and protect your family. Just follow these simple steps:
- Clean the lint trap EVERY time the dryer is used
- Clean the inside of the dryer as well
- Check and clean the dryer hose and the vent head on the exterior
- Keep the laundry area free of clutter
