What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?

A clogged Pipe has a buildup of lint and other debris.

Clogged Dryer Vent - We Get The Lint Out!
Our Clogged dryer vent

Homeowners with today’s modern laundry rooms find clothes dryers almost anywhere in the home, creating very long vents and clogged dryer vent.

Your Duct Work has complicated runs that have several bends.

This scenario means dryer vents tend to create backpressure, and the dryer’s efficiency is degraded.

Homeowners with Long clothes dryer vents will collect lint more rapidly than dryer ducts with shorter runs and fewer turns.

What Causes Dryer Vent Clogging?

Customers with clothes dryer ducts longer than 25 feet should consider annual cleanings because a Clogged Dryer Vent can cost you more to operate your dryer. RESIDENTIAL DRYER VENTS

Other hazards are dryer vents made of flexible plastic occur When the dryer gets pushed back against the wall, it gets crushed. This type of dryer duct material is more likely to sag.

This is why we recommend ridge metal or UL-approved flexible metal ducts. All connections should be with aluminum foil tape for the dryer vent.

Dryer vents should not have screws or duct tape. Screws catch lint, and the tape will dry out and be useless.

Customers that use Screens or cages at the Dryer duct termination point outside your home will prevent animals from getting in; consequently, you’ll need to check frequently for lint buildup.

Homeowners that clean the clothes dryer vent screen will get proper airflow. Good airflow is approximately 15 MPH up to 20 MPH at the exit outside your home.

Ice-covered dryer vent

Snow and Ice Covered Dryer Vents Cause Homeowner Headaches

Large amounts of snow and ice are more than just a nuisance that needs to be cleared away on a cold winter day.

Ice forms and builds up around the outside of your dryer vents.

When this happens, the lint, dust, and other debris normally get carried away from your clothes. They should exit your house, but instead, get trapped inside the dryer and dryer vent. Serious problems can occur if your dryer vent exits your home in an area that is prone to snow cover or water runoff.

For example, when snowdrifts off the roof, it can easily accumulate several feet high, covering up the dryer vent below. Snow not only enters the vent, but it can also freeze over.

Blocked Vent Causes Carbon Monoxide

Perhaps the most harmful effect from a snow-covered or ice-blocked vent stems from the carbon monoxide (CO). This gas can get trapped within the gas dryer and get released back into your home or commercial building.

Exposure to the gas can lead to health problems, including headaches and dizziness.  Prolonged carbon monoxide exposure can even lead to death. Although carbon monoxide buildup and exposure are not hazards with electric dryers, gas dryers need to be checked after every snowstorm or deep freeze to ensure they are venting properly.

Blocked dryer vents waste energy because your dryer has to work harder to dry your clothes. Snow and ice can prevent the dryer’s vent flapper from opening properly, preventing cooler air into the appliance.  If a dryer is blocked for an extended period of time, the lint inside the vent has been known to ignite, causing a home fire.

4 Signs Of A Blocked Dryer Vent!

Here are 4 signs to look for if you are unsure whether your dryer vent is blocked from excessive snow or a frozen dryer vent.

  • Increased dryer time. If you notice your dryer taking longer than usual to dry your clothes
  • Your clothes feel hot to the touch.
  • Lint blowing out into your room, or lint settling on your clean clothes.
  • Lint settling on the inside and the dryer’s back panel.
