CLOGGED DRYER DUCTS ARE A SERIOUS FIRE HAZARD 


Inoperable dampers or clogged weather hoods on clothes dryer exhaust ducts are items that I repeatedly discover during my home inspections. A dirty duct and/or clogged weather hood causes the dryer to operate very inefficiently and run much longer than needed. If the air can’t leave the dryer exhaust duct the moisture can’t leave the clothes-this is both costly to operate and greatly increases the chance of a house fire starting in the dryer duct. The weather hood pictured above is a perfect example of why any type of screen on a weather hood serving a dryer is prohibited. Periodically check the ductwork for lint build-up and clean as needed.
