Avoid Dryer Fires With Tips from Amica Insurance
Date:9/20/2013

Lincoln, RI (PRWEB) September 20, 2013

For many people, doing laundry is part of a daily routine. But there is nothing routine about a dryer fire, and that’s why Amica Insurance is sharing some tips to help keep you, your family and your property safe.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), there were approximately 16,800 structure fires caused by dryers or washing machines in 2010. Those fires led to 51 deaths, 380 injuries and $236 million in direct property damage.

Amica is sharing the following tips from the NFPA to help prevent dryer fires:

  • Make sure your dryer is installed and maintained by a professional.
  • Never use the dryer without a lint filter.
  • Clean the lint filter before or after every load of laundry, and remove any lint that has gathered around the drum.
  • Metal venting material, either rigid or flexible, should be used to allow for proper airflow and drying time.
  • Ensure that the exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and that the outdoor vent flap is open while the dryer is running.
  • Never use the dryer when you’re not home or you’ve gone to bed.
