Dryer Vent Fires
Time to clean out those dryer exhaust vents. Dryer exhaust vents are a major concern for fires. There are many people out there that have dryers and have never cleaned out their vents (the hose that goes from the dryer to the wall that vents outside), well its time. Vents should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year. If you have a larger family and do a lot more laundry two to three times a year is better. But it’s just not the vent it’s self you should clean the dryer filter after each use. The drum it’s self doesn’t need to be cleaned unless there was something forgotten about like gum, lipstick or pen. If you notice that its taking 2-3 cycles to dry your clothing properly then it’s time to clean things out. If you are in need of a clean up due to fire give SERVPRO of Marlboro/ Tinton Falls a call.
