Cleaning out your dryer vent has a multitude of benefits such as fire safety, preventing carbon monoxide, eliminating mold, bringing down bills, and extending dryer life. There are approximately 15,500 fires caused by dryers having buildup in the vent system and these fires could have been avoided by having a clean ventilation system. Carbon monoxide is a very dangerous gas that can be highly deadly. Since it’s a colorless and odorless gas, it makes it even scarier to have in the comfort of your home. The buildup in the dryer vents can make it difficult to exhaust fumes to properly vent outside and can create the risk of carbon monoxide in the home. Mold is another very dangerous issue to have in the home since it can lead to serious health risks for your loved ones. Having clean dryer vents could also save energy bills and could speed up dryer time!
