Feb. 3, 2011 - PRLog -- Hicksville, NY -- Dryer vent cleaning can prevent several dryer related hazards including dryer fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.   Dryer vent cleaning service is important for anyone who owns and operates one more clothes dryers, including single family homes, apartment complexes, condos, public laundries, beauty shops and animal shelters to name a few.  Poorly vented gas dryers, like any fuel-burning appliance, can be a carbon monoxide risk.

Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, was recently interviewed.  He explained how gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat.  “Many people only associate carbon monoxide threats with their furnace,” said Dougherty.  Few are aware that poorly vented gas dryers can allow dangerous levels of carbon monoxide to enter their home.”

The snowstorm that hammered the east coast last winter prompted New York lawmakers to require everyone in the state to install carbon monoxide detectors in their homes.   Amanda’s Law went into effect after a girl died from carbon monoxide poisoning in 2009.  

With the recent snow storms slamming the east coast, Bob Dougherty is warning his customers to make sure their dryer vent is not obstructed or frozen shut.  “Dryer vents are typically installed on the outside of a home about two feet off the ground.  Drifting snow can easily block the dryer vent and block air flow,” said Dougherty.

According to Bob Dougherty, there are many great reasons to clean dryer vents and no good reason to neglect this important maintenance.  Dryer vent cleaning promotes maximum dryer performance and helps keep dryers operating safely and efficiently.  Cleaning dryer vents reduces wear and tear on the machine and prevents pre-mature breakdown.
