DrySafer Clothes Dryer Lint Alarm Helps Prevent Fires

microphone-592197

DrySafer is a clothes dryer lint alarm. All clothes dryers have lint filters to catch the lint. However, because lint is so small, it bypasses these filters and starts to build up inside both the dryer and the exhaust ducts, reducing the dryer’s airflow. Once the airflow is reduced, the dryer runs longer and hotter, and can overheat and cause a fire. DrySafer’s patented airflow sensor easily installs onto the back of your dryer and sounds an alarm if the airflow ever becomes restricted.
