Prevent Toronto Fires by Cleaning your Dryer Vents
It's an instinctive thing for homeowners. You take your warm,
fresh-smelling clothes out of the dryer; you pull out the lint
trap; you scrape out the lint; and you put the trap back-satisfied
that you've done your bit for dryer efficiency and safety.
But in spite of your care, a surprising amount of lint manages
to escape the filter into your dryer vent. It can get stuck there,
and build up over the years. This decreases your dryer's energy
efficiency. A blocked vent forces the machine to work harder to
heat the air to dry your clothes. That means longer drying times, a
harder- working machine, more power required and higher energy
This build up of lint can also put you at risk for household
fires. According to a 2007 Ontario Fire Marshall report,
between 1996 and 2003 the province had an average of 213 fires,
eight injuries, and homeowners faced $1.9 million in losses each
year due to clothes dryer fires. Maintenance and installation
issues such as lint blockage and buildup were responsible for a
third of these fires.
