Prevent Dryer Fires With These Safty Tips

Dryers are a cause of too many house fires. Good maintenance will prevent almost all of these fires. TipNut has some great tips:
  • Always make sure the lint filter is in place & make sure to clean it out after each use. Failure to clean out lint traps is the main cause of dryer fires.
  • Make sure the dryer is plugged into an outlet that is suitable for its needs.
  • Make sure the dryer is properly vented and that dryer vent flaps are not freezing shut or sticking (especially in winter). Remove lint buildup inside the vent by vacuuming occasionally.
  • Pull out the dryer occasionally to vacuum away any lint behind or underneath the dryer. Learn how to remove the front panel of a dryer and vacuum inside to remove built up lint.
  • Read the rest at TipNut.
