Is Your Home Safe From Dyer Fires?
Lately, I have been noticing a lot more interest in a secondary dryer lint trap. I’m not completely certain if it’s because of the increase number of clothes dryer fires being reported or if it’s partly due to the popularity of DIY home improvement show on television, promoting a safer home environment. Whatever the reason, it seem that many more people are looking to make their home safer by adding a secondary dryer lint trap in their dryer venting system.
One thing is certain, the increase in the number of basement apartments being built, either to accommodate aging baby boomer parents or as means of generating a second income, means that many clothe dryers have to be relocated; often to an area that is not as accessible to an outside wall, thereby making it necessary to install a secondary dryer lint trap to accommodate the longer vent distances.
Longer venting reduces the efficiency of your clothes dryer and increases the possibility of dryer fires. You can maintain a safer environment and reduce risks by the addition of a secondary dryer lint trap and maybe even the addition of a dryer vent blower.
