According to recent statistics released by the U.S. Fire Administration, an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported in the U.S. every year. As an added benefit, a clean dryer vent keeps your dryer running smoothly and more efficiently, which means increased savings on your energy bill.
