    •Save time – Clean dryer vents allow air and moisture to properly escape, decreasing the time it takes to dry a load of laundry.
    •Save money – A clean vent allows your clothes dryer to work efficiently, which results in decreased drying time and saves on dryer utility costs. As an additional bonus your clothing will spend less time tumbling, meaning decreased wear and tear, so they will last longer, saving you additional money.

    Hi, that particular statement is actually a well-used statement/statistic that is used by many industry related websites, publications and reports as well as media reports. The original source of that statistical information I believe came from a report titled: “Clothes Dryer Project: Report on Electric and Gas Clothes Dryers” that was produced by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in 1999. On page 11 of the PDF report (report link provided below), the information provided is likely where that particular statement was derived from and the probable source for many other reports that have become sources for other publications and reports through the years which can possibly be the reason why it is still used and quoted today (even though it is old and out-dated).
    Report Link: https://www.cpsc.gov/PageFiles/95930/clothes.pdf

    PS. – I did not know how old that statement/statistic actual was until now =( and so I am trying to look for an updated stat. In the meantime, here is the most recent data I could find at this time. It is from a report that was issued in September 2012 by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and it states (pls note: not a direct quote) that in 2010, an estimated 16,800 reported home structure fires involved clothes dryers or washing machines (and combo washer/dryers). http://www.nfpa.org/~/media/Files/Research/Fact%20sheets/DryerFactSheet.pdf

    Thank you. I asked because I’m always sceptical of claims made in advertising, especially when it relates to safety. I am also curious as to how many of those fires are actuallly attributed to dirty dryer vents as opposed to other causes (Electrical malfunction, etc). Obviously lumping washing machines into that category eliminates dirty dryer vents as a cause in some of those fires.

    Hi again. You are right and this report, “Home Fires Involving Clothes Dryers or Washing Machines” (Sept. 2012) from the NFPA website has the answers to your questions. http://www.nfpa.org/~/media/Files/Research/NFPA%20reports/Appliances%20and%20equipment/oswashersdryers.pdf On page 6 of the PDF report, there is a statistical comparison for the different causes of the fires for each appliance. It states for dryers, it is usually something being dried or a byproduct of such an item, like fiber or lint, while for washers, the first item ignited was usually part of the appliance itself like wire or cable insulation.

    Also page 10 of the PDF, there is a good comparison table as well.

    ===
    FYI –
    Another good reason to call Dryer Vent Wizard is for us to inspect your appliances and make sure they are properly installed and all the parts are in good working condition and up to code and compliant with the latest safety regulations.

    Please call us today. 916-431-2011

    Thanks.
