When air flow is restricted by lint accumulation in the dryer ducts the dryer can over heat and cause a fire. Gas dryers, like all fuel burning appliances, must be properly vented to the outside to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard explains to his customers how a poorly maintained dryer vent system can restrict air flow and cause dryers to labor excessively as they do their job. Increased drying time is a sign of restricted air flow which leads to high energy usage and eventually becomes a fire hazard.

Other hazards of poorly vented clothes dryers include excess heat and moisture in the home leading to mold and mildew damage or mold related illness for residents.
