Village of Schaumburg Schaumburg Fire Department Monthly Report
A restricted vent allows the dryer to build up heat and catch on fire
“The lint trap only captures approximately 75 percent of the lint with the remaining 25 percent going out the vent. If there are bends or restrictions, the lint can accumulate. Routine cleaning of the vent between the dryer and the outside vent will reduce the risk of fire.”
The best way to prevent the possibility of a dryer fire harming your family is an annual dryer vent inspection and cleaning by the professionals at The Lint King Dryer Vent Cleaning Experts.
