There is a hidden danger lurking within nearly every Canadian home and it’s in your dryer vent.
As time goes by, tiny bits of lint that have managed to avoid your dryer’s filter accumulate inside the exhaust vent, gradually increasing until it blocks the free flow of air. This can cause an excessive buildup of heat and result in a fire in some dryers. Don’t think it can’t happen to you! The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that more than 15,000 dryer fires occur each year, costing homeowners as much as 97 million dollars in property loss and damage.
