Risk Factors and Causes of Issues With Dryer Vents
Homeowners may experience problems with their dryer vent because of many potential issues. Being familiar with the major indications of a problem is prudent. Failure to take action may result in safety concerns or diminished function from the vent.
Main issues to be aware of include:
- Lint buildup: As lint and debris build up, the airflow reduces, which makes the dryer work harder to keep up. When your clothing is hotter than usual out of the dryer or takes longer to get dry, suspect a lint clog.
- Improper installation: When installed improperly, the vent may leak or have sections that disconnect. The result is impaired drying and air leaks.
- Damage: Cracks, kinks, and bends in the vent will tend to block airflow and contribute to lint accumulating.
Don’t ignore these vent problem indications. There is a risk of fire from lint building up close to the dryer’s heating element. Clean your vents periodically to minimize danger.
Neglecting problems with your vent can make the dryer perform poorly. As it works harder, the dryer takes more time to dry your clothing and requires more energy — you’ll also see higher power bills. The dryer may need to be repaired more frequently too, or even replaced earlier than needed, because of the higher workload.
Another issue with bad ventilation is the potential for moisture increasing in your house. Mold and mildew thrive under moist conditions, compromising the health and comfort of your family.
Do yourself a favor and arrange immediate service from ARS/Rescue Rooter, your preferred dryer vent contractor, to keep your dryer vent in good working order.

Repair or replacement costs will depend on service rates in the area, what materials and supplies we need to do the job, and how severe the problem is. We’ll provide a detailed estimate before work begins, so there will be no surprise fees. Schedule a visit today to get an exact estimate.
Do we need to clean the whole dryer vent assembly, or only the section you can see?
You must clean the whole dryer vent system. The process includes exhaust ducts and the vent pipe, since these are points in the system where debris and lint builds up, leading to impaired efficiency because of blockages.

- Burning odor

Ideally, you’ll hire experts. Our professional technicians possess the skills, training, and know-how to understand and fix your vent, while an amateur homeowner may make matters worse.
When do I need to have professionals inspect and clean the dryer vent?
We advise you to book service for dryer inspection and cleaning once annually to minimize risk and boost system performance.
What can I do to improve energy efficiency regarding my dryer vent?
Employ a vent cover to boost airflow and install a dryer vent booster fan. Such tricks can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
