Old Westbury Residents Surprised to Learn Dryer Vent Cleaning Prevents Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

The Old Westbury Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard educates consumers about safety hazards associated with poorly vented clothes dryers

Online PR News – 01-November-2010 – – Dryer vent cleaning helps eliminate several home hazards including dryer fires, carbon monoxide poisoning, mold and mildew damage and appliance failure. Dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer vent installation is especially important for those who own a gas dryer. Poorly vented gas appliances 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.”

Bob went on to explain, “the number of home fires and carbon monoxide poisonings increases during the fall and winter months. Dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer vent installation helps to eliminate these hazards.”

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. 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.

According to Bob Dougherty, there are many great reasons to clean dryer vents and no good reason to neglect this important maintenance.
