Lint build-up in the dryer

Build-up lint in drying cabinets causes more than 15,000 fires each year. Dryer lint escapes through tiny gaps at the edges of the dryer drum and falls into the cabinet, especially if the exhaust air or vent cap is clogged and airflow is restricted. The lint can be ignited by electrical heating elements, gas burners, or even a spark from the engine, and the flames then travel through the lint-lined exhaust vent. To make sure this doesn’t happen in your home, regularly check the exhaust vent and the inside of the closet. And while you’re there, make sure these things never end up in your dryer.
