How is dryer lint formed? Where does dryer lint come from?

The lint screen traps about 60% of lint removed from tumbling laundry. Dryer lint is simply small fibers that are shed from clothing as it agitates in your washer. Heat and tumbling motions cause clothing and other materials in the dryer to break down and produce lint.

The dryer forces heated air through laundry as it tumbles in the rotating dryer drum, allowing clothing fibers to break loose and form clumps of lint.

As the dryer heats and dries your laundry, it also dries the lint. Air flow forces the lint into the lint screen. Remember, I mentioned that only 60% of dryer lint is trapped in the lint screen. Where does the rest go? Great question. The answer is pretty scary!

Lint is evil and sneaky; it can escape into the back of your dryer and your dryer vent system. In the dryer cabinet, lint can cause problems with the motor, belts, pulleys, and other moving parts inside the dryer.

Dryer lint is the main ingredient required for a rapidly spreading dryer fire. As dryer lint builds up in the dryer ducts air flow is blocked. As air flow is reduced, heat and moisture cannot easily escape. Now, the lint, that should be dry, is moist. It sticks to the sides of your dryer duct and attracts more lint. Add a small spark from inside the dryer to the lint built up in your dryer duct to complete the recipe for a devastating dryer fire.

In addition to causing the fire, lint provides ample fuel to keep it burning and allow it to do serious damage to your property.




Over 15,000 dryer fires are reported annually, with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. Dryer fires cause millions of dollars in property damage and death and injury to people and pets every year.

The lint screen needs to be cleaned after EVERY load of laundry. Professional dryer vent cleaning is recommended periodically by the U.S. Fire Administration to keep dryers operating safely and efficiently.

Have you ordered professional dryer vent cleaning services within the last year? Most dryer fires are caused by failure to clean dryer vents. More dryer fires are reported in January than any other month of the year. Part of the increase is due to heavier clothing being worn during the colder months. The heavier items take longer to dry, allowing more moisture and lint to go through the system.
