Dryer Vent Education | Warning Signs of Dryer Lint Blockage

You could have just one of these symptoms or many depending on the amount of blockage and length of your dryer vent. If your dryer vent is over ten feet long and hasn’t been cleaned in a year or more you need to address this before you run your dryer. Most people are completely unaware of this potential fire hazard. Dryer vent education is the key to keeping your home safe.

  • Does your dryer take over 50 min. to dry a load
  • Is your dryer hot to the touch on top
  • Humidity inside the dryer door
  • Dryer lint collecting on the inside of the dryer door
  • Is there ever a slight burning smell when drying
  • Water in the transition tube connecting the dryer
  • A moldy or musty smell on your clothing
  • Is lint gathering on the backside of your lint screen
  • Excessive lint on black clothing
  • Is your dryer’s lint screen not gathering any lint on it

Your connection kit could be part of the problem
