A dryer vent is a vent located at the back of your clothes dryer. The purpose of a dryer vent is to draw moisture and water out of the dryer. The purpose of a dryer vent system is to transfer water, vapors and lint to an outdoor place outside your premises. The dryer vent system is a combination of different parts which are as follows:
The dryer vent is connected to a tube, mostly made of aluminum which is fed to the outdoors and is known as dryer hose. Old vinyl and plastic were also used for making of the dryer hose, but are discontinued because of fire hazards and other safety purposes.
This dryer hose is commonly known as the dryer vent. Flexible elbows and tapes are used to connect different dryer vent parts.

A clogged or dirty dryer vent does not allow proper drying of the clothes but also take two to four times more time and electricity and thus adding up to the electricity bill. Proper cleaning helps the dryer run efficiently and dry the clothes just in time and thus saving electricity bill which you would end up paying otherwise.
The Dryer Vent Cover
A dryer vent cover is usually placed towards the end of the dryer hose and is known as dryer vent cover. This dryer vent cover prevents damaging an outside wall or the roof. The dryer vent cover also helps in dispersing heat and moisture in several directions.

The dryer Vent Brush
