What are the Dangers of Blocked Dryer Vents?
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), malfunctioning or poorly maintained clothes dryers and washing machines are one of the leading causes of home fires.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Gas dryers with vents that are blocked, obstructed, or not properly maintained can cause carbon monoxide to build up in the home.
