Washer Dryer Clean our your lint traps in your dryer to prevent fires in Alliance, Ohio.

Did you know that over 17,000 fires are related to home dryers each year? To some people laundry may be a daily event. If you do not clean your dryer filter after each use can be dangerous. 

Here are a few simple tips to follow to help prevent a clothes dryer fire.

  • Clean the filter screen after each load to prevent lint buildup.
  • An adult should be at home whenever the dryer is in use and the home should have working smoke alarms.
  • Clean the vents outside twice a year to clean out any accumulated dust and lint.
  • Commercial dryers should be cleaned out regularly because of their frequent use and shared venting system.
  • Do not dry mop heads in the dryer. The dryer's heat can ignite the chemical residue on mop heads.
  • Keep the surrounding area clean. The dryer's heat may ignite anything left too close to the dryer.
  • The safety of your family is important to us and we hope that you do not encounter such a fire. Be sure you follow these steps to avoid a fire in your home.
