The Consumer Products Safety Commission reports that more than 15,600 dryer fires occur annually, causing more than $75.4 million in property damage, injuring 370 people and killing 20. In most cases, the culprit is lint in the heating element—often caused by lint backing up and blocking air flow in improperly installed or dirty ducts. Even dryers with safeguards are susceptible to dryer fires.
FreshDry’s Dryer Vent Cleaning Service in Riverside, Corona, Chino Hills, and throughout Southern California can help reduce the likelihood of dryer fires caused by lint build-up. We use the state-of-the-art RamAir System, which is backed by The National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association (NADCA), to make sure your dryer vents are cleaned correctly the first time.
In gas dryers, improper or blocked ducts also can cause flue gasses to back up into the house. The odorless, colorless carbon monoxide (CO) fumes can be fatal. At lower levels, CO poisoning mimics flu symptoms (without the fever): headache, weakness, nausea, disorientation and deep fatigue.
Protect your home from today. Call FreshDry at (951) 338-9144 to make sure your dryer vents are inspected and cleaned at least once every 6 months.
