Warning Signs of Dryer Vent Blockage

Lint and debris can build up in your clothes dryer duct causing your dryer to work overtime, creating potentially hazardous conditions including dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home or even a fire.

Long Drying Times

A longer drying cycle is usually a straightforward sign that airflow is restricted in the dryer vent line, resulting in trapped moisture in the dryer and, therefore, more time needed to dry clothing fully. Restricted dryer vent airflow is caused by clogs or obstructions in the dryer vent line.

Hot Clothes / Hot Dryer

When a vent line is obstructed, moisture and heat build up in the dryer, resulting in a hot appliance and/or clothing. This is not only dangerous because of the increased risk of fire, but it can also cause excessive wear to the appliance itself and your clothing.

Wet Clothes

If your dryer is getting too hot due to trapped heat and moisture because of a log or blockage in the vent line, the machine may turn off mid-cycle. This fail-safe is the dryer manufacturer’s final effort to prevent a dryer fire, and should be taken as a sign that immediate service is needed.

Mold or Mildew Smell

Fungi thrive in warm, moist areas, and if heat and moisture are not properly vented from your laundry area, mold and mildew may begin to grow in your dryer, dryer vents, on clothing, and in and around the laundry area.

Excess Pet Hair

Dryer vent systems in homes with pets tend to clog more quickly and carry more debris that can cause a dryer fire, meaning you may want to consider an inspection or cleaning more frequently than the recommended one time per year.

No Lint on Lint Trap

If you find no lint on the lint trap, or lint on the wrong side of the screen, an obstruction is most likely causing a backup of lint in your machine. Back pressure and a buildup of heat and lint in the machine can easily result in a dryer fire.

Lint on Clothing

When your clothes come out of the dryer with lint on them, it is likely that lint is being trapped in the dryer with nowhere to go but on your clothes due to a dryer vent clog.

Lint Behind Dryer

Lint that is forced into and behind the dryer near the machine components is a significant fire hazard and should be removed immediately.
