Dryer Fire Risk
The Federal Emergency Management Agency cites that 34% of home dryer fires are caused by the dryer vents not being cleaned.
$35 million annually in property loss is caused by dryer fires. One way to prevent these types of fires is by calling SERVPRO of Duncanville/DeSoto to thoroughly remove dryer lint in the vent and/or air ducts.
The National Fire Protection Agency advises that you clean the lint filter before and after each load, and regularly check to ensure that the outdoor vent flap is not blocked by a bird's nest or other obstacle.
To get an estimate, or schedule a cleaning of your dryer vent and ducts, contact SERVPRO of Duncanville/DeSoto at 972-224-8800 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
