Here are some tips provided by the wizard of dryer fire prevention:

• Clean the lint screen or filter before or after each load of laundry • Make sure your dryer vent system meets city, state and manufacturer’s safety codes • Replace plastic or flexible foil systems with semi-rigid or sold metal material • Keep the dryer lint screen clean and wash it every few months with soap and water to remove residue from fabric softener sheets • Have professional dryer vent lint cleaning done each year • Don’t store combustibles, chemical cleaning products or chemical soaked rags near your clothes dryer or other gas appliances • Do not leave the house or go to sleep when the dryer is running • Check the dryer vent outside often for lint build up, blockage, damage or freezing

Dryer Vent Wizard, dryer manufacturers, and the National Fire Prevention Association all recommend professional dryer vent lint cleaning to prevent fires, save energy and prolong the life of your appliance. In addition to cleaning dryer vents, they will also check belts and rollers inside the back of the dryer to be sure everything is in good working order. Worn belts can cause the drum to become unbalanced and rub against other parts, causing the dryer to throw a spark and ignite the lint built up in the dryer vents.
