The Dangers Of Carbon Monoxide
Your dryer needs a clear pathway to send potentially harmful gases out of your home. If your vents are filled with lint, these fumes will simply turn around and enter your living space, putting your loved ones at risk of carbon monoxide exposure. Now, most people know this gas is bad, but many underestimate just how dangerous it can be.
Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so noting its presence within your home is next to impossible. Some side effects of exposure include dizziness, confusion, nausea, and headaches. Many report feeling flu-like ailments, only without a fever. If you are at all concerned that you have carbon monoxide in your home, leave immediately, then call for help.
If symptoms are ignored, victims could easily pass out and eventually pass away. This could also occur if the person is sleeping and unaware that they are breathing in poisonous fumes. You are always better off minimizing the risk of exposure at all costs by investing in regular maintenance for your gas-fueled appliances. Get your dryer vent cleaning on the books today!
The Threat Of House Fires
Another common issue when it comes to clogged up vents is overheating. If your system overheats, it won’t take long for the flammable lint to catch on fire and spread flames throughout your laundry room and household. In fact, thousands of dryer-related fires occur every single year, leading to multiple deaths, hundreds of injuries, and millions of dollars in property loss.
