According to Insurance data, washer and dryers are the fourth leading cause of house fires, and obstructed vents and impacted debris are a major contributor. Older homes typically would place these appliances on an outside wall, shortening the distance for a vent run. Many modern homes move them to interior spaces, making the vent run longer any often adding in multiple right angle turns to get to the exhaust port.

Northstar Services can inspect and clean the entire vent, including the dryer and attached hose to make sure the airflow is where it should be.
