New York, NY (PressExposure) June 11, 2008 -- Mold grows on wet and damp areas, usually in bathrooms, kitchens and the laundry area. It produces allergens and irritants; when inhaled or touched, it can cause allergic reactions to sensitive people. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin problems. Molds can also trigger asthma attacks in people with allergies to mold. Dryer Vent Wizard educates consumers on awareness of mold in their clothes dryer vent.
One of the most important functions of the clothes dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothes. The moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity, and is normally expelled to the outdoors throughout the dryerâs vent. If the air cannot be adequately removed, mold begins to grow and cause potential health issues. The moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, which is a sign of poor venting that should be looked into by a professional dryer vent service person.
Dryer Vent Wizard recommends having dryer vents cleaned and inspected annually to prevent dryer vent problems. If consumers are experiencing longer than normal drying times, then it is time for service to ensure proper airflow and efficiency in the function of the clothes dryer.
