Dryer vent neglect, has been cited as a contributed factor, and the lint is the source of ignition. As the lint accumulates in the dryer vent system, and the dryer heats up, the sparks can ignite the lint, causing fires. With a professional cleaning, the risk of fires are reduced. Getting the dryer vent system professionally cleaned once a year is recommended by most manufacturers, but if you have average over 8 loads a week, twice a year cleaning would be optimal.
Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Without proper maintenance, dryers can produce carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, odorless, colorless toxic gas that is difficult to detect. It typically produces flu-like symptoms, and after prolong exposure can result in death. When the vents are obstructed with lint, or wildlife nests, the toxic fumes are not properly expelled outdoors. Instead, these harmful fumes are being backed into the home, and the carbon monoxide poisoning is being inhaled by the residents. With an experienced technician cleaning your vents, all manner of debris is being removed. Lint, the lost sock, wildlife nests, and anything else that manages to get obstructed in the vents. After which the vent system is properly expelling the potential harmful carbon monoxide gas.

With an obstructed vent system, the clothes cannot get dried sufficiently. The cause of mold can be contributed to clogs or leaks. If a clog is present, or the vent system is not properly installed, moisture is condensed and trapped in the vent system. When the water combines with the lint passing through, it clumps together, and sticks to walls, floors and ceiling. Not only can this enlarge the obstruction, but it provides the perfect conditions for mold to take root, and thrive. In the case of a leak, a dryers clogged vent prevents proper airflow, the water condenses and will leak. In that event, mold is created, and festers.
