The weather in Florida is HUMID which can make dryer lint soggy. This soggy lint can block your dryer vent and lead to FIRES! Keeping the outside dryer vent clean is essential to dryer safety and efficiency and to prevent structural moisture problems. Check the exterior dryer vent regularly while the dryer is running to make sure the slats are opening freely. The vent should also be inspected for cracks or missing parts. Missing parts can allow insects and vermin to enter the ductwork and your laundry area, and no one wants that!
