Home Safety

Next to your kitchen stove or a heater, your clothes dryer is a big fire risk. Try not to leave your home with the dryer running. Most people clean their lint filter after every load, but is it really clean?? The lint filter is made of mesh material. If you run hot water on the filter and the water sits on top of your filter, its not clean. Dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh and that's what burns out the heating unit. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes clean and static free. Dryer sheets feel waxy when you take them out of the box and that stuff builds up on your lint screen and causes your dryer units to catch fire. PLEASE take a few seconds to make sure your lint filter is clean!!! This all will help in preventing dryer fires and will help prolong the life of your dryer. To clean your filter, take hot soapy water and scrub with an old toothbrush. You will also want to clean your dryer vent on a regular basis. This can easily and quickly become plugged.
