Plastic dryer venting has been banned from residential usage for several years now. This type of material is considered a fire safety hazard and should be replaced if you have this present in your home. While inspecting an older property in Brentwood, TN today I ran across sections of plastic dryer venting in the crawl space area of property. The burn hole in his plastic is an indication as to why this is considered a fire safety hazard. These people were lucky as their house did not burn down.
