According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, over 15,600 fires requiring a fire department response start each year in homes. Clogged lint traps and clogged vents in clothes dryers are the cause of many house fires. Cooking still remains to be the number one cause of a fire, and that will be a blog for next week!
Dryers work by forcing hot air through the drum. That air carries lint with it, which is filtered by the lint trap. If that trap isn’t cleaned regularly, the flow of hot air is restricted. As the air heats up, it can eventually ignite the lint buildup.
