You were taught "Stop, Drop & Roll" in kindergarten. You have heard the PSAs to change smoke detector batteries for Daylight Saving Time. Then there are the warnings about candles, curling irons, fireplaces, stoves, etc. These are all very important home safety tips.
One home fire hazard is given very little attention though - dryer fires. There are over 15,000 dryer fires annually. Even if you clean your lint filter after every load, lint buildup happens over time INSIDE your dryer and in your venting system. Dryer lint is very flammable.
Our founder, Tom Asciolla, has personally repaired thousands of dryers over 30 years. He saw the need for an early detection alarm for decreased airflow and overheating since many people do not have their dryers and dryer vents serviced as often as they should.
Ask around - while most people empty their lint filters after every load - most do not clean their lint filters monthly with soapy water. And only a small percentage have their dryers and vents cleaned every two years. Most people we asked admitted they have never had that done - even after 5, 10 or 15 years!
We are on a mission to decrease dryer fires. We hope to do that through dryer maintenance education and our innovative Dryer Lint Alarm PLUS. We hope you choose to make your home safer with our product, but, no matter what, please maintain your dryer and have it serviced by a professional.
Did you know that you should have your dryer vent cleaned and inspected by a professional every two years? People might think that since they clean their lint filter after every load, their dryer is fine. Unfortunately lint particles are so tiny, some bypass the lint filter, so over time, lint will still build up inside your dryer and venting system. This decreases your dryer's efficiency, overworks your dryer, and could cause a fire.
What can you do to maintain your dryer to keep it working efficiently and not become a fire hazard? Purchase DrySafer™ Dryer Lint Alarm PLUS and follow these tips as well.
Not only will it help keep your home safe from a fire, a clean dryer is an efficient dryer. Save money, too!
The DrySafer™ inventor, Tom Asciolla has spent over 30 years repairing dryers as an
appliance repair technician. The title of this blog post is the inspiration for the DrySafer™
Dryer Lint Alarm PLUS.
Once you notice that your clothing is not dry after running a full dry cycle, your dryer is already being overworked due to a clog inside your dryer or the venting system. The lint buildup is a fire hazard and an inefficient dryer is costing you more on your energy bill. The DrySafer™ Dryer Lint Alarm PLUS will alert you sooner so you can clear the clog or have a professional inspect and clean your dryer and venting system before your dryer costs you more on your electric/gas bill plus the wear & tear on your dryer from running longer and harder. And most importantly - before you experience one of the more than 15,000 dryer fires each year.
Tom created an affordable product Made in the USA that will help you stay on top of your dryer maintenance. While having to run the dryer multiple cycles to dry your clothes is annoying, you can now see it is costing you money and could cause a fire.
