More than 17,000 dryer fires occur each year, causing deaths, injuries, and over $100 million in property damages. In response to this growing trend, dryer manufacturers install safety devices to shut the appliance down when sensors detect restricted airflow which causes overheating.

According to Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, these safeguards, though a step in the right direction, are not 100%. They can wear out or fail. Proper dryer vent installation and regular dryer vent cleaning service are the best ways to ensure dryer safety.
