Crawlspace Clothes Lint

As the home inspector made his way under a Concord house – he spotted a large accumulation of clothes dryer lint in the crawlspace.

Clothes dryer lint is microscopic clothes fibers and is highly flammable. This is considered a fire concern and doesn’t meet building requirements.

Lint ducts are required to terminate at the exterior of a house.

Did you know that clothes lint is used by campers needing tender to start a fire?

It turns out that lint and a spark or match produces a flame almost instantly.
