When was the Last Time you Cleaned your Dryer Vent? (ad)
When was the last time you had your dryer vent cleaned? Lint and debris can build up in your clothes dryer duct causing your dryer to exhaust at less than optimum efficiency. This creates potentially hazardous conditions including carbon monoxide intrusion and the possibility for fires.
In the United States there are over 15,500 fires and 10 deaths attributed to dryer fires annually.
If a gas clothes dryer is improperly vented or the exhaust duct itself is blocked by lint or debris, carbon monoxide can be forced back into your living space.
A clean exhaust duct prevents heat, moisture and, in the case of gas clothes dryers, carbon monoxide from being trapped in your home. When this type of spillage occurs, energy, natural resources and time are all wasted because your appliance works too hard and runs longer than necessary. Moisture can also cause damage to drywall, wallpaper, ceilings and other building materials.
“Failure to clean” is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.
