Improve Air Quality in Your Home
Carbon Monoxide and Your Dryer Vent Hose
By now, you’re well aware that a clogged dryer vent can become flammable. However, a fire isn’t the only danger that could be lurking in your laundry room. A clogged dryer vent can prevent dryer exhaust from safely venting outside. Instead, it releases these toxins into your home, causing a buildup of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that can be extremely dangerous if not dealt with quickly. Inhalation can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, and if symptoms aren’t recognized in time, it can even lead to death.
Mold and Mildew
Another danger of an obstructed dryer vent is mold. A single load of laundry can contain the equivalent of a half-gallon of water. If the moisture is unable to vent outside, it can build up in your laundry room and cause mold growth. Mold spores reduce the quality of air in your home, causing structural damage and health problems.
