We know how it goes… You mean to schedule your dryer vent cleaning, but days go by and you just never get around to it. After all, it can’t really make that big of a difference, right? Well, even if your dryer has been running just fine, your vents still could be putting your home at risk!
CSIA certified dryer exhaust technicians recommend investing in annual dryer vent cleanings, so if you have yet to get yours on the books, the time to call the team at Mason’s Chimney Service & Certified Air Duct Cleaning, Inc. is now.
The Dangers Behind Clogged Vents
So, what dangers does a homeowner face if their vents are dirty and clogged? Well, one issue that may arise is carbon monoxide poisoning. The fumes and vapors that are created when running your dryer need a place to escape, but a clogged vent leaves them with nowhere to go. This increases the risk of people in your home being exposed to dangerous gases.
Carbon monoxide is always the main concern, and its colorless and odorless nature make it especially hard to detect. Should physical, flu-like symptoms, such as nausea, fatigue, dizziness, confusion, headaches, or similar issues occur, leave the home and get help as soon as possible. There are multiple carbon monoxide-related deaths every single year, so it isn’t something you want to take a chance with.
Another big problem that can arise is house fires. Clogs can easily cause the system to overheat, which could then trigger a fire. Before you know flames will be filling the laundry room, and it will not be long before they start spreading through the house. We hate hearing of homeowners who are forced to put thousands of dollars into their home after fire damage, when they could have invested in a simple, affordable cleaning and avoided the disaster altogether.
Fires can obviously cause harm to loved ones, as well, so avoiding them at all costs is vital when it comes to keeping your home and family members safer. If you are ready to have your dryer vents cleaned, give our team a call, and we’ll be on it right away. You deserve peace of mind, and this is one way to achieve that.
