Excessive lint behind or in your dryer vent
Excessive lint behind a dryer can mean there’s even more lint blocking the way, which can lead to moldy clothes, energy waste, and even dryer fires.
Using PVC piping or plastic piping
Plastic and PVC piping can both produce sludge from trapped moisture in the vent, causing lint to collect and harden. This can cause problems, from difficulty cleaning the pipe, all the way to dryer fires.
Using screws, bolts, or duct tape to secure your connections
Duct tape will dry out over time and leave gaps through which moisture and dust can get trapped, while screws and bolts are master lint collectors.
