Dryer fires are serious and can happen to any one at any time if proper maintenance is ignored. It’s cold outside in the Bay Area during this time of the year, and you’re enjoying the time off from work during the holidays, you’re at home all by yourself and the next thing you know disaster strikes, alarms are wailing loudly, smoke is filling your home and then your worst fear comes rushing out from behind your clothes dryer. A fire has broken out and started to engulf your clothes dryer, your laundry room wall and then without any warning your home starts to go up in a raging and roaring blaze.


It’s no laughing matter. Fire can and will destroy anything in its path. A mindless all consuming force that will stop at nothing until it destroys everything within reach. It happens fast and usually without warning. All it takes is a single moment of a perfect mixture of fuel, air and heat or spark to ignite and then once the beast has been awakened it only takes a few seconds to destroy an entire lifetime.
