How to Clean a Clogged Dryer Vent:
Dryer Vent Cleaning

 

When you wash clothes, the fabrics produce lint. But that’s not all. Things fall out from your pockets and the dryer sheet produces lint that collects in the exhaust of the dryer. In every cycle, these elements, and others can lead to a buildup in the dryer vent. Thus, the dryer exhaust system is now installed in every home.

A clogged clothes dryer vent can lead to a fire hazard. Lint, debris, and leftover materials from your jean pockets can start to clog the dryer vent on the external side of the exhaust—the one outside of your home. The dryer exhaust vent serves an important function. It gets rid of the heat, steam, and fumes that your dryer generates.

To prevent a fire in your home, you should make sure there is no lint buildup in or around the vent on both the dryer side and the outdoor side of the dryer exhaust hose. You should always remove the lint from the components before every drying cycle.

A clogged lint trap can lead to a home fire. It can also result in a longer drying time. On the outside of your home, you can use a vacuum cleaner to eliminate the lint from the dryer duct.

How to get my dryer to actually dry my clothes?

If your dryer is not properly drying, there could be many issues with your dryer, including:
  • The lint filter could be clogged
  • The area around the lint filter could be clogged
  • The area around the blower wheel could be damaged

What causes dryer lint?

When clothes are worn, washed, and dried, it disrupts the bonding of the fabrics over time, producing tiny particles of fabric that build up into lint. Tiny ends of cotton, wool, and other materials create lint that can create a blockage in your dryer. Therefore, it's critical to clean the lint screen between loads.
