Prevent fires by cleaning out your dryer vent

ATLANTA -

Most of us clean the lint trap every time we use our clothes dryer, but lint builds up somewhere else and sparks thousands of fires a year. Tipman Tim is coming to the rescue.

Tipman Tim, otherwise known as Tim Thompson, shows us how to clean out your dryer vent at midtown Atlanta's historic mansion, Rhodes Hall.

Rhodes Hall is the headquarters of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. On May 4 they're hosting a Home Owners Workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It's for homeowners and homebuyers who are interested in either purchasing an older home, or hiring a professional to make repairs, or do-it-yourselfers wanting to make repairs or improvements themselves.

The grounds of Rhodes Hall will be filled with vendor displays offering information on all aspects of homeownership. Inside, seminars, lectures and demonstrations will be offered simultaneously on the half-hour, allowing attendees to participate in numerous sessions.
