The U.S. fire departments respond to an estimated average of 15,970 home structure fires involving clothes dryers each year! These fires caused annual averages of 13 civilian deaths, 444 civilian injuries, and $238 million in direct property damage! The leading items first ignited in dryer fires were dust, fiber or lint!

I have experienced this exact situation many times with people…. their house caught on fire due to lint from the dryer! They lost SO much.... had to gut the entire house and start over....it was absolutely DEVASTATING! When debris begins to clog the dryer vent, the exhaust gases produced by the dryer begin to back up and create a potential fire hazard. This can turn an otherwise helpful appliance into a disaster waiting to happen. Aside from the biggest risk of a home fire, clogged dryer vents can lead to short-circuiting and major electrical problems, overheating in the home and increased energy bills as the dryer has to work harder and harder with each spin cycle in order to dry clothes.
