Lint Around Dryer Door Seal

Why Lint Is Building Up in the Dryer Door Seal?

Lint buildup in the dryer door seal can happen if the lint screen is incorrectly installed, damaged, or ineffective at catching lint during drying. It can also be due to a clogged dryer vent filled with lint and debris. When the vent is clogged, the lint has nowhere else to go and gets pushed into the door seal. When this happens, excess lint can be seen collecting along the edges of the seal.

  • Dryer Vent System Inspection

    A dryer vent system inspection addresses excessive lint around the dryer door seal and determines the cause of the problem. To find any issues, our service professionals thoroughly examine the entire vent system, end-to-end.

  • Dryer Delinting

    Dryer delinting removes extra lint from in and around the dryer cabinet. Thoroughly cleaning these areas reduces the potential for issues and hazards including a dryer fire. This will also remove lint that can end up in the dryer drum and on the door seal.

  • Dryer Vent Cleaning

    Professional dryer vent cleaning helps remove excessive lint around the dryer door seal and reduces the chance of future lint buildup. Routine vent cleaning is vital for reducing lint buildup so you don’t have to worry about fire hazards and can have an efficient dryer.

  • Dryer Debris and Clog Removal

    Removing clogs and debris from the dryer will restore proper airflow and reduce the chances of lint being pushed into the dryer seal or onto your clothes. It’ll also reduce the likelihood of encountering future lint-related problems or fire hazards.

  • Dryer Vent Repair

    You may notice lint trapped in the dryer door gasket because your dryer vent is broken and can’t expel lint. Dryer Vent Wizard’s repair solutions allow the lint to end up where it’s meant to be.
