If you notice that your clothes are taking longer to dry than usual, the clothes are hotter to the touch or the dryer itself is hot at the touch, this may be a sign that there is a problem with lint blockage because of lint build up. In order to prevent fires and save energy costs, you should clothes dryer and dryer vent cleaned of lint immediately.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there are 15,000 clothes dryer fires per year. The result of these fires are material losses, injuries and even death. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers. In a normally functioning dryer, hot moist air is generated in the dryer, forced through a vent system, and then exhausted outside of your house. If this airflow is obstructed at any point the temperature in the dryer and vent system will begin to rise. In addition to increased temperatures, restricted airflow will cause a significant increase in the accumulation of highly combustible lint in both the dryer itself as well as in the vent system. This dangerous combination of increased temperature and highly combustible fuel is a recipe for disaster. The CPSC Safety Alert states “Overheated Clothes Dryers Can Cause Fires. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers.” http://www.cpsc.gov//PageFiles/118931...
