Glen explained how these inferior dryer vent systems can become a hazard. "The vinyl or flexible foil ducts tend to sag, allowing lint to build up in the low spots. The corrugated tubing traps lint in the folds. The flexible foil tubing is easily crushed behind the dryer as the owner slides it closer to the wall. When airflow is restricted, heat and moisture cannot escape. As the dryer overworks to do its job, drying time increases, causing the dryer to use significantly more energy. Soon the dryer will overheat and throw a spark into the dryer duct where the flammable lint waits to be ignited.
The solution to preventing dryer fires and promoting dryer efficiency is simple. The Wizard recommends professional dryer vent installation followed by annual dryer vent cleaning to keep the dryer operating safely and efficiently. Even the very best dryer vent system will accumulate lint build-up over time, said Mayfield. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs solid metal dryer vents in accordance with city, state and manufacturers safety standards.
