Dryer vents become clogged or dirty through the years. Lint from human and animal hair and clothing, and anything we left in our pockets mostly survive in the washing machine. As clothes trip around in the dryer, this lint of clothes turns out to be air born. Since the air from the dryer travels through the air circulation system the moist lint and debris will follow. Lint getting damp while it escapes has a possibility to stick with the outer surfaces of the air circulation system. The lint at some point reduces the circulation of air making the dryer keep working harder and can stop the air from getting away altogether.
If the dryer vents are clogged the hot air which is meant to escape will be impossible. This means that that the moist air is getting into the house. The result could be mold problems and it will also lead to allergy issues. (more…)
