Excess lint on Clothing

Why There Is Excess Lint on Clothes After Drying?

Excess lint on clothing could be caused by many things, such as a clogged lint trap or a poorly operating vent system. If your lint trap or dryer vent system is full of lint or debris, it won’t allow the lint to exit the dryer, leaving it on your clothes instead.

Be sure to clean the lint from the lint trap after each load of laundry. If you still have lint on your clothes or suspect other issues, schedule a professional inspection and cleaning with your local Dryer Vent Wizard® team.

  • Dryer Vent Cleaning

    If you notice lint on clothes after drying, a professional dryer vent cleaning can help. A thorough cleaning removes lint accumulation and blockages, extending the life of your dryer. Dryer vent cleaning will ensure the lint gets where it’s supposed to during the drying cycle.

  • Dryer Vent System Inspection

    If you aren’t sure why you see lint all over your clothes after drying, our Dryer Vent Wizard expert service professionals can help assess the situation. We’ll inspect your system to identify any issues and then address them to get you up and running in no time.

  • Lint Screen and Trap Cleaning

    If your dryer leaves lint on clothes, a lint screen and trap cleaning can remove any buildup. Dryer sheets leave a waxy buildup and the screen will need to be cleaned regularly to remove any residue left behind and ensure it can trap the lint. Incorporate this service into your dryer maintenance routine to minimize excess lint on clothes after drying.

  • Dryer Delinting

    Dryer delinting involves thoroughly cleaning the dryer's internal components to remove any lint buildup. A Dryer Vent Wizard service professional will delint the dryer to reduce excess lint on clothing, improve dryer efficiency, and reduce fire hazards.
