Environmental Factors to a Clogged Dryer Vent
Not only are clogged dryer vents flammable, they also are hazardous to your health and the environment. A clogged dryer vent releases poisonous gas fumes. Blocked vents can cause carbon monoxide to back up into your home harming you and your family.
Prevent Animals from Nesting with a Clean Dryer Vent
Clogged dryer vents also create a nice, warm home for small rodents and birds to nest in. If the lint buildup becomes too large, the duct hood flap won’t open and close properly. If the flap isn’t closing properly, it creates a nice warm welcoming to the unwanted rodents and birds to build a nest in your dryer vent, therefore having direct access into your home.
