There are many ways that improperly maintained dryer vents may have a negative effect on you and your family. A clogged or clamped off dryer vent hose is a perfect host to mold growth which can lead to an array of respiratory illnesses. Molds can cause a variety of symptoms, such as nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, eye irritation, wheezing and coughing, and possibly skin irritations as well. A properly maintenanced dryer vent can prevent mold growth in your laundry room. A MagVent product such as the MV-90, MV-180, or the MV-Flex, can reduce humidity levels by providing a proper ventilation system that is super easy to clean and maintain. The magnets allow a much easier cleaning process than your traditional dryer vent system. A MagVent product, a properly designed duct system, and routine cleaning are the solutions to boost dryer efficiency, decrease mold accumilation, and save energy and space!
