Brea Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Reveals Little Known Hazard with Gas Dryers

Like gas powered furnaces and water heaters, gas dryers can also be a carbon monoxide threat if not properly vented to the outdoors



Brea CA – The Brea Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is spreading the word about a little-known threat with gas dryers. Current safety standards require all gas dryers to be vented to the outdoors. Like gas powered furnaces and water heaters, gas dryers can also be a carbon monoxide threat when not properly vented.

Carbon monoxide is dangerous and deadly gas that interferes with how the body processes oxygen. It is colorless, tasteless and odorless; therefore, difficult to detect until it is too late. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, nausea and disorientation. The dangerous gases are produced inside homes where carbon-containing fuels are incompletely burned.

Gina Fazil, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard ( is warning area residents that poorly vented gas appliances, including clothes dryers, can allow carbon monoxide into the home. Because many homes have been upgraded for energy efficiency, 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.

It is important to be sure all combustion equipment and appliances in a home are properly installed and have adequate ventilation. Have a qualified dryer exhaust technician perform an inspection and upgrades if necessary to ensure the clothes dryer is operating safely and efficiently.
