Fire Safety Tips To Protect Your Home

Fire safety week

October 9th – 15th is fire prevention awareness week. We’re here to spread the word that clothes dryer fires are a real concern, but with a little awareness and the right products, they can be easily avoided. Help keep your home and family safer with these helpful tips.

1. Perform regular maintenance on your dryer duct
Ensure your dryer transition duct has limited kinks and bends to avoid lint build up. Your dryer duct should be inspected on a regular basis to remove any lint built up that does occur.
