At SERVPRO of Western Lehigh County we care about your safety of you and your family. Dryer safety is important to know.  Not maintaining a dryer properly can result in a potential fire hazard. Here are some tips to keep your dryer safe from any potential fire, and keep your family safe.  

  • Have a professional install and repair the dryer
  • Do not use the dryer without a lint filter
  • Always clean the lint filter before/after loads
  • Clean any loose or accumulating lint in and around the drum
  • Rigid or flexible metal should be used in venting for proper use and drying for the dryer
  • If clothing takes longer than usual check the vent pipe for any possible blockages
  • Never leave a dryer left on during the night while sleeping or when away from your home

These are great tips to follow and a great way to prevent fire happening in the home.  Although it is our job to help mitigate and restore after a fire.  SERVPRO of Western Lehigh County would much rather have everyone be safe and not see someone have to deal with fire damage.
