Dryer Fires - A Common Problem

Lack of maintenance is the leading cause of dryer fires with lint sited as the leading material to ignite. The fires may be caused by:

  • Failure of mechanical and/or electrical parts within the dryer
  • Improper materials placed in the dryer
  • Insufficient airflow as a result of improper installation
Dryer Cleaning - A Simple Solution

Unlike many health and safety issues we are faced with in the home, this safety problems has an easy and economical solution. The best way to prevent the possibility of a dryer fire harming your family is with a thorough dryer inspection by the professionals at DUCTBUSTERS®.

A key to effective dryer performance is optimal airflow. A properly installed all-metal dryer vent will help ensure this airflow.

DUCTBUSTERS® will check to ensure there is proper airflow for the dryer and that the right equipment is in use.

Causes & Cures of Dryer Fires

Reduced airflow and lint build-up cause overheating and prevent fast drying action. When this happens, the high temperature limit safety switches cycle on and off continuously and thus may fail over a period of time. This results in higher costs of operation and could result in a costly and dangerous dryer fire.

DUCTBUSTERS® uses a variety of specialized tools and procedures to clean dryer vent ductwork. The entire process usually takes about one hour. However, cleaning is only one part of our service. The dryer vent is also inspected for several mechanical issues that should be checked by a professional duct cleaner. DUCTBUSTERS® is the  qualified choice.

The use of proper venting materials helps to achieve maximum performance, which could extend the life of your dryer. When clothes are given the appropriate amount of air, they dry quicker, are subject to less tumbling, and result in less electric or gas usage from your dryer. There's also less wear and tear on your clothing, increasing the life of your clothing. Think of the savings!
