How To Prevent Dryer Fires in Your Home

 

October 9th – 15th is fire prevention awareness week. We’re here to spread the word that clothes dryer fires are a real concern, but with a little awareness and the right products, they can be easily avoided. Help keep your home and family safer with these helpful tips:

1. Perform regular maintenance on your dryer duct

Ensure your dryer transition duct has limited kinks and bends to avoid lint build up. Your dryer duct should be inspected on a regular basis to remove any lint built up that does occur.
