Clothes dryer fires cost millions each year.  It is estimated that about 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year and are responsible for an estimated $35 million in property losses, based on a report released in 2013 by the U.S. Fire Administration.  Failure to clean was the leading factor contributing to the ignition of clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.  Dust, fiber, lint, and clothing were the leading items first ignited.  Lint, which is highly combustible, can accumulate both in the dryer and in the dryer vent.  Accumulated lint leads to reduced airflow and poses a fire hazard.  It is best to have a certified technician regularly check your dryer and replace the dryer vent hose when needed.
