According to the Ministry of Solicitor General, Ontario had over 168 dryer fires in 2011, and every single one of them was caused by lint build-up. Vacu-Man suggests preparing for the installation of a dryer vent, and further the maintenance of your vents, by ensuring that you DO NOT use a plastic dryer vent pipe/vent. These are the most likely to hold and catch fire from lint build-up. Vacu-Man also recommends regular vacuuming of your vents to prevent lint build-up and ensure optimal dryer performance.
