Dryer Fires- a leading Cause
The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them.
Some tips to prevent dryer fires:
Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum.
Once a year, or if you notice that it's taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal service do it for you.
Gas dryers should be inspected by a professional to make sure that the gas line and connection are intact and free of leaks.
Don't overload your dryer.
Turn the dryer off if you leave home or when you go to bed.
