One of the leading causes of home fires is a clogged or dirty dryer vent. This quick exercise could help shield you from such a horrible ordeal. Its easy – ladies…you can do this too! Follow these 7 easy steps: 1. Turn your dryer off & pull it from wall. 2. Remove the vent pipe that connects it to the exterior wall vent. 3. Clean the vent pipe – I’m always amazed at what I find. 4. Take a long, dryer brush and clean the rear and front vent area with it. 5. Vacuum the pipe, rear of dryer and front lint trap as best you can. 6. Re-attach the hose. 7. Push the dryer back in position – making sure you are not crimping the vent pipe. Done.
