A Hidden Vulnerability
Every time you dry your clothes, you have a potential chance of setting your house on fire. It’s a scary thing to consider, but since most house fires result from clogged dryer vents than chimney fires, it’s a necessary cause for concern.

Due to its access outside, animals can sometimes access these dryer vents. They make nests within them, and when even more lint and dust is added to the mix, you have yourself a fire hazard.
