We spend a lot of time telling people about the hidden fire risks that lurk inside their chimneys and fireplaces (especially those that don’t receive regular cleanings and inspections). Our chimney sweeps are committed to safety, and there’s one safety measure that often goes unchecked.
Today, we want to talk about a part of the home you may rarely, if ever, spend time thinking about. The dryer vent leads out of your dryer and outside of the home. It keeps all that heat out of the house, along with any gases you certainly don’t want in your home—byproducts of combustion.
