Why did you tell me to keep the dryer vent clean during my home inspection

Some clothes dryer vents need to be cleaned out. When the vent line gets clogged up with lint it takes a lot longer for your clothes to get dry. As a matter of fact, if the dryer vent line is clogged up you could actually have a fire. The Consumer Products Safety Commission states “The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that in 1998, clothes dryers were associated with 15,600 fires, which resulted in 20 deaths and 370 injuries” and estimates that there are approximately 15,000 clothes dryer fires each year with $97 million worth of damage caused by these fires.

Please, clean out your clothes dryer vent line at least Annually! More if you are a larger family and do more laundry than I do.

I saw what looks like a good product on the internet the other day for cleaning your clothes dryer vent line. It’s called the “Lint Eater” and their web site is www.linteater.com. The unit was priced under $55.00.

  1. What most people want to avoid is a dryer fire, annual cleaning’s are a sure way to prevent a dryer fire from happening in your home or condo, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
