You might be looking at the title of this article and saying to yourself, “Whaddya mean I gotta sanitize my dryer vent line? I thought I just had to keep the lint cleaned out!”. *shake our head* Nope! There's a little more to cleaning a dryer vent line than just removing the lint and debris – like sanitization.
Why does your dryer vent line need to be sanitized? Well, it's just like any other surface in your home (i.e. countertops, etc) and you wouldn't go around not ever sanitizing them, right? (EW!) Bacteria, viruses, and fungi can all find their way into your dryer vents AND they can spread. Now imagine all that on your clothing...
The whole bacteria, viruses, and fungi appearances happen even more in cases where animals have nested in the vent system. Birds and rodents like to make their nests in dryer vents (they're toasty warm – can you blame them?); this not only causes airflow obstruction and a fire hazard, but those nests contain some pretty icky things. Icky things like harmful bacteria or Histoplasma capsulatum (a fungus which affects the lungs) or the Hantavirus (a virus in the Bunyaviridae family which can kill humans). All things which are definitely NOT cool or SAFE!
