Dryer vent cleaning is an important step to take to keep yourself safe. Most people realize that a vent that is full of lent creates many hazards and problems.
Fire Hazards

Dryers heat up to extremely high temperatures and thus they pose a fire hazard. Safety precautions and security measures need to be taken with your clothes dryer just like you do with any other appliances that produces heat in your home.

Carbon Monoxide

If your dryer is gas operated, you can even get carbon monoxide seeping into your home with dangerous consequences. The lint trap in your dryer does not capture all the lint produced when drying your clothes. As the moist air exits the dryer through the vent hose, small lint particles are carried along with it. As time goes by, this lint builds up on the insides of the vent

Energy Waste

Dryers pose risks other than just fires. When your dryer vent is clogged, it can cost you a ton of money by using lots more energy than necessary.

Mold

The material stuck in the dryer vent is an ideal breeding ground for molds that can sicken your entire family.
