THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION estimates that over 15,000 clothes dryer related fires occur each year. In 1996, the result was 20 deaths, 320 injuries, and over $84 million in property damage, according to the commission. The CPSC reports that the most frequent starting point for these fires was the dryer vent area. The typical scenario is simple. The dryer overheats, the lint catches fire and the fire is then helped by combustibles in the immediate vicinity (these fires can smolder for hours going unnoticed until after you've gone to bed or left your house for an errand). Fortunately, removing this danger from your home is neither complicated, nor expensive. In addition, there are some nice extra benefits as well. Removing this lint, for example, results in a dryer that runs cheaper, since it uses less energy to get your clothes dry. Drying times can even be shorter, getting you out of the laundry room faster. Finally, the dryer it can last longer since it's not, stressed by the higher operating temperatures caused by the lint buildup. DCS uses the most advanced equipment of its type. Using a combination of suction and rotating brushes, that dangerous lint is removed safely and effectively, both in the ducting system and in the dryer itself. At the end of the process, the dryer is tested thoroughly for proper airflow. We finish up by providing you with recommending future servicing or cleaning needs don’t take the risk!
