Have you noticed anything different about your laundry room lately? For example, does it feel a little warmer in there when you’re running your dryer? That might not seem like a big deal, but if it feels warmer than usual, then you should probably pay attention.
A hot laundry room could be a sign that you have a clogged dryer vent. And a clogged dryer vent could lead to a dryer vent fire. Your dryer vent goes unnoticed most of the time. But over time, lint and other clothing debris can build up in your dryer vent.
That buildup can spark a dryer vent fire. Thousands of homeowners every year fall victim to dryer vent fires. The good news is this is something that can easily be prevented. You just need to get your dryer vent cleaned regularly, usually about once a year.
