Why You Should Be Concerned When Your Dryer is Not Venting Outside
If you happen to notice that your dryer is not venting outside the way that it should, one of the first things that you should do is to call AAA Commercial Vent. There are several reasons why a dryer without a vent to the outside can be dangerous or costly to you. Here are a few of the top examples.
Possible issues with mold or mildew
In order for your dryer to effectively dry your clothes or linens, air must be able to flow freely in and out of the vent. This air ultimately removes the water and moisture that was used during your wash cycle. When your vent is not working correctly, over time there will be a build up of moisture in your vent. This can lead to mold and mildew issues that can potentially impact the health of you, your family, or your employees.
Your dryer vent must be up to code
There are certain areas where it’s illegal to vent your dryer inside. Although building codes do vary, the current way to vent your dryer is to establish a connection that is outside so that you have fresh air flowing freely in and out of the vent.
Did you know that if your dryer vent does not vent outside or there is a clog in the vent that prevents proper ventilation there may be a build up in carbon monoxide in your laundry room? Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that is highly toxic. Carbon monoxide exposure could result in serious physical harm. If you are exposed to this gas for a long enough period of time, there is a possibility that it can also result in death.
Possible safety hazards
During every cycle, a certain amount of lint is left behind. Although the majority of this lint is usually caught by the lint trap, it’s possible for lint to accumulate in the vent itself. Many people are unaware of the fact that lint is fluffy and very dry which makes it extremely flammable. While your machine is running, the vent will become warm. This heat could result in the lint catching on fire which can cause severe damage to your home and business as well as jeopardize the safety of your family or employees.
