North Jersey – 9th February, 2019 – Dryer fires have been constantly on the rise since the last decade. U.S. Fire Administration has reported a significant loss in lives and property because of these fires. To heighten awareness regarding the same, Dryer Vent Wizard of North Jersey recommends the following tips to avoid dryer fires during the winter months:
Monitor Dryer Times: During winter months, only use your dryer for 30 to 40 minutes per load. By limiting your dryer cycle times, air can circulate through the dryer better, and there will be less lint buildup overall. If your clothes need more than 40 minutes to dry, this may be a sign that airflow in your dryer vent is constricted. Inadequate airflow can be the result of a clog or obstruction in your dryer vent system such as excess lint.
Remain Alert: When drying clothes, do not leave the house unattended or fall asleep with the dryer running. Keep the area around your dryer clear of any items that could ignite. If your dryer is in need of good cleaning, then it might run hotter than usual, and this could potentially cause items near your dryer to ignite.
Hang Heavy Clothes: Heavier clothes, bedding, and pillows can contribute vastly to the buildup of lint and other debris. Hang heavier items to dry to avoid lint buildup.
Pest-Proof Vent Openings: Add a proper pest-proof vent cover to your outside dryer vent opening to keep out critters and vermin. Animals are attracted to the warm air emitted from your dryer vent in cooler months. Installing a proper pest-proof cover allows your dryer to vent properly while keeping critters out.
Clear Vent Openings from Snow: Keep the outside vent opening clear from snow. A blocked vent could cause a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
