Safety Tips

According to the NFPA, National Fire Protection Association, there are steps you can take as a homeowner to ensure the safety of your family and property. Here are a few of those steps:

  • Do not use the dryer without a lint filter.
  •  Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum. 
  • Rigid or flexible metal venting material should be used to sustain proper air flow and drying time. 
  • Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and the outdoor vent flap will open when the dryer is operating. 
  • Once a year, or more often if you notice that it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal service do it for you.
