What Causes a Clogged Dryer Vent?
Dryer vent clogs happen when lint accumulates in your ventilation system and causes a blockage.
There are a few ways that dryer vents can clog:
1. dryer ventilation tubes are made from foil or bendable plastic. These materials can be easily crushed or dented leading to the build-up of lent in an area causing a blockage.
2. some dryer vents are long and this will increase the need for curves and bends. When this happens, lint will accumulate in these areas.
3. a dryer vent that is not connected properly can cause lint to trap.
4. Some ventilation screens are placed to prevent animals from accessing the ventilation, these screens will sometimes create a blockage and build-up of lint.
When lint builds in your dryer vent, it blocks the flow of air from the dryer to the outdoor vent, creating tremendous levels of heat that could lead to a fire. This heat can cause highly flammable particles like lint and clothing to catch fire. By having your dryer vent cleared of any lint or debris, you lessen the likelihood of a fire occurring due to a blocked fire vent.
