A little bit of prevention can save thousands of dollars, or even a life.

At Fresh Aire Duct Cleaning, we are dedicated to providing Los Angeles with excellent duct cleaning services, bringing those in industrial and residential buildings clean, healthy air.

In this post we want to provide you with the annual clothes dryer fire statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration, and inform you on how a professional dryer duct cleaning from Fresh Aire can easily prevent such a disaster from happening.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration*, every year:

  • An estimated 2900 clothes dryer fires cost more than $35 million dollars in property loss
  • Cause more than 100 injuries
  • Result in an average of 5 deaths

The most common causes of dryer fires are:

  1. Failure to clean the dryer and the vent
  2. Mechanical failure, malfunction
  3. Electrical failure, malfunction
  4. Misuse of material or product

Additionally, the U.S. Fire Fire Administration reported that dryer fires cost an average of $9,610 per building.

So, what can you do?

  • Use metal instead of plastic ducting. Consumer Reports says that flexible or plastic ducting is the most problematic.
  • Personally set a calendar reminder 1-2x a year to clean out your dryer system.
  • Fresh Aire Duct Cleaning will provide you with a professional deep dryer duct cleaning. We provide the best dryer vent cleaning Los Angeles has to offer, and our services will help to prevent dryer breakdowns, dryer fires and give you piece of mind.

A little bit of prevention can save thousands of dollars, or even a life.
