Dryer Vent Cleaning in the Wilmington Area

We clean dryer vents!

In 2016, an estimated 18,600 reported U.S. home structure fires involving clothes dryers (including combination washer/dryers) resulted in 51 civilian deaths, 380 civilian injuries, and $236 million in direct property damage.

Seaside Sweep offers dryer vent cleaning to the Wilmington NC area including Hampstead, Leland, and along the coast.

Safety tips

Have your dryer installed and serviced by a professional.

  • Do not use the dryer without a lint filter.

  • Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum. 

Facts and figures:

Clothes dryers accounted for 92% of the fires; washing machines 4%, and washer and dryer combinations accounted for 4%.

The leading cause of home clothes dryer and washer fires was failure to clean (32%), followed by unclassified mechanical failure or malfunction (22%). Eight percent were caused by some type of electrical failure or malfunction.

The risk of fire is roughly equal for gas-fueled clothes dryers and electric-powered clothes dryers.
