Dryer vent cleaning and maintenance prolongs the life of your dryer, saves on energy bills and prevents fires
Chicago, Ill - Mory Matias is known for his efforts to promote public awareness of dryer vent cleaning and proper dryer exhaust maintenance to prevent fires. Some people would say that Mory is constantly "venting" about dryer vent cleaning.
Mory is often overheard by others when he is speaking to consumers or apartment building managers about the danger of lint build-up in dryer ducts. "Think about what the dryer vent and exhaust ducts are removing from your home," said Matias. "Heat, moisture and lint must escape the dryer drum in order for clothes to come out dry. In addition, if you have a gas dryer, then proper venting is essential to prevent carbon monoxide from leaking into your home."
Mory says a lot about the danger of lint build-up, in just a few words, "Hot sticky lint builds up on the inside of your dryer duct to the point of restricting air flow, causing overheating, and eventually, a fire. Lint being very combustible, adds plenty of fuel for a fire to spread quickly."
Mory also talks a lot about the old fashioned vinyl or plastic venting systems that all dryers used to have; sadly, many still do. "There are a number of problems with vinyl, plastic and flexible foil dryer ducts; they crack and break, they're easily crushed or the excess tubing is coiled and stuffed behind the dryer, making it impossible for it to vent hot air and lint. Using materials that do not meet current safety standards can void the warranty on your clothes dryer."
