According to the insurance industry the humble dryer vent is responsible for nearly 3,000 house fires in the US every year. That makes it one of the most common causes of house fires, just below electrical equipment, cooking, candles and space heaters. It’s a pretty safe bet, however, that if you asked 100 people to name the most common cause of house fires they’d likely name all those mentioned above except dryer vents. And this is one of the problems. You see, if people are not aware that a clogged dryer vent can cause a house fire they’re unlikely to perform, or hire someone to perform, dryer vent cleaning.
