Where Does the Water Go
A dryer vent system is a vehicle for exhausting lint and moisture from your laundry. One load of laundry can have up to one gallon of water. One 4 foot thread of fiber from your laundry can produce up to ½ cup of lint.
A dryer vent system typically has at least two “elbows” or 90 degree turns. With each elbow, the system is forced to work harder to exhaust the lint and moisture.
Just like a boulder in a river or stream, it is the source of buildup and backflow of moisture. Lint buildup will compromise your dryer, your home, and cost extra drying time and repeated drying cycles not to mention the vent system will expel lint into your home (consider more dusting and the time spent there as well) and you will have poor air quality for those living and visiting in the home.
Moisture not vented to the exterior will create pooling and even greater damage to sheetrock, wood, and insulation. Here is where mold can begin opportunistically and spread to areas far beyond the origination source. Immediately before mold begins a home can see such great water pooling that sheetrock and the home structure itself is compromised.
Every manufacturer of Dryers recommends, at minimum, a yearly cleaning of the dryer ventilation system.
