Excess Lint Behind Dryer

Debris found behind a dryer

Why does lint collect behind the dryer?

Excess lint amassed behind the clothes dryer is a serious fire hazard. When a dryer vent is functioning properly, lint moves through the dryer vent system to the exterior of your home or business. An accumulation of excess lint around or behind your dryer can be the result of a clogged dryer vent. Since a clogged vent restricts airflow so that the air cannot move the lint to the outside of your home, it forces the lint into the area behind your dryer.

What should you I do if lint collects behind my dryer? Dryer Vent Wizard's dryer vent cleaning service ensures that your dryer vent system is clear and working properly. With a clean dryer vent system, the amount of lint that accumulates in the dryer vent and behind the dryer is reduced.

If you find excess lint behind your dryer, we recommend that you have your dryer vent professionally inspected and cleaned in order to help prevent a dryer fire and improve efficiency.
