Dryer Vent

We just put a new addition on and relocated the laundry room to the 2nd floor. The dryer vents to the outside at the corner of the house above a window and small deck/landing. It makes a huge mess of lint that sticks to the screen window and door, and also all over the deck and clapboard siding. How can this be fixed?

Re: Dryer Vent

Well, it could be worse. I had a house where the dryer vented on the front door mat. I solved the problem by building an additional box in-line with the vent hose and used hand cut filter media to make replaceable filters.

You really need to remember to replace the filters though.

Re: Dryer Vent

You can try an inline lint trap installed on the vent
