Carbon Monoxide Alert from the Canton Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard

Few homeowners are aware that gas dryers and water heaters can pose a carbon monoxide threat without proper ventilation

Canton MI – The Canton Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard advises homeowners that all clothes dryers must be vented to the outdoors to work safely and efficiently. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that interferes with how the body processes oxygen; it can be dangerous and deadly. The dangerous gases are produced inside homes where carbon-containing fuels for gas appliances are incompletely burned.

Larry Butterfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains to his customers that poorly vented gas appliances, including clothes dryers, can allow carbon monoxide into the home. Due to increased consumer awareness, homes are being upgraded for energy efficiency; therefore, the gas by-products, like carbon monoxide, have less chance of escaping the home. Proper dryer vent installation and maintenance is critical to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and other dryer related hazards.
