Vent Genius Enhances Electric Clothes Dryer Safety
Vent Genius / Safety First
The USFA claims that “2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires".
Vent Genius is meant to be installed in the fall and removed in the spring.
When it is cold you will be reminded to install your Vent Genius. When the weather turns warmer and you no longer need the heat, Vent Genius will remind you to take it off. During these times you have the opportunity to inspect and clean your dryers exhaust as needed.
Many online sites including Home Depot and Loews sell a complete dryer cleaning system for around $25. It is serious and worth the time and investment!
