Excess Lint Behind Dryer

Why Lint Is Building Up Behind the Dryer?

Lint behind the dryer can signal issues with the performance, maintenance, or installation of your dryer vent system. These issues can lead to lint ending up behind a dryer instead of outside your home, where it belongs. This lint buildup is not only unsightly and annoying but also poses a fire hazard. Thankfully, Dryer Vent Wizard®’s service professionals are here to solve all your lint issues.

  • Dryer Vent Cleaning

    Dryer vent cleaning helps avoid lint buildup behind the dryer by removing the clogs and debris from the vent system. A thorough cleaning will restore proper airflow through the vent duct, minimizing the chances the lint could escape and hide behind the dryer. Regular vent cleaning also helps reduce fire hazards and promote dryer efficiency.

  • Lint Screen and Trap Cleaning

    Cleaning the lint screen and trap regularly is crucial for preventing excess lint behind the dryer. When clean, lint screens and traps can capture the lint throughout the drying process. As a result, you will have less lint on your clothes and behind your appliance.

  • Dryer Vent Repair

    Dryer vent repair addresses lint buildup behind the dryer by ensuring the vent functions properly. If there are cracks or damages in the vent system, the lint may not be sucked into the vent properly, allowing it to sneak behind the dryer.

  • Dryer Delinting

    Dryer delinting involves thoroughly cleaning the dryer components to remove all the accumulated lint. This process significantly reduces the amount of lint around the dryer, minimizing the risk of fire or other hazards.

  • Dryer Vent System Inspection
