Why does dryer lint come into my bathroom through the air vent? Is there a leak in the dryer vent pipe? We just got our dryer vent cleaned.

Is it coming through the exhaust fan in the bathroom? Is it possible that the dryer, and the exhaust fan share a duct? – Tester101 Feb 15 '14 at 19:13
we need to know what kind of vent you have in the bedroom and if it is an open vent or a fan forced exhaust vent. Does this vent go into the ceiling? more detailed info please – shirlock homes Feb 15 '14 at 21:12
