Energy Efficiency: With a clogged dryer vent, a dryer can work up to 10 times as hard to dry clothes. If you have to run your clothes through a second dry cycle, your dryer is using at least twice the energy is should, along with reducing the life expectancy of your dryer.
Fire Hazard: As dryer vents load up with lint and soap residue, so do dryers. This mixture is highly flammable and when it gets backed up close to the electric heat element in the dryer, it can easily combust.
Flood Hazard: AIf the condensation does not reach the outdoors in vapor form, the result is moisture buildup in the duct-work. This condensation can build up and start to pool in the duct-work. The water along with the lint entering the duct-work causes blockages to form very quickly
