Most of us don’t give much thought about our dryers unless they are broken. However, a poorly maintained dryer could be a potential fire hazard. According to a report, “Clothes Dryer Fires in Residential Buildings,” that was issued by FEMA’s U.S. Fire Administration in 2010, the failure to clean dryer vents is the leading factor contributing to the ignition of clothes dryer fires in residential buildings. Dust, fiber, and lint are, by far, the leading items first ignited in clothes dryer fires. Most of the lint that is created from clothes tumbling in the dryer is caught in the filter but it also accumulates in the dryer and in the vents. Lint is a very combustible material and as it builds up it can overheat and a possible fire can ensue.Angiel Air is a heating, ventilation and air conditioning service that is located in Eastvale at 12672 Limonite Ave, Suite 3E-199.
