I have noticed in the media recently that there are growing concerns over the fire risks associated with white goods

Tumble dryers have come in for particular scrutiny especially since one was identified as the cause of a ferocious blaze in an eighteen storey block of flats in Shepherds Bush, West London, which required 120 firefighters to bring it under control.  In fact London’s Fire Brigade has attended over 2,000 fires involving white goods since 2011.
There are some simple steps that you can take to avoid problems with your tumble dryer.

•    Do not leave the house unattended when your dryer is operating or leave or to run overnight.
•    Regularly clean the heat exchanger on condenser dryers.
•    Ensure the filters are completely free of fluff.

If you have any doubts, we will be happy to send an engineer to service and clean your machine.
