Default Question - dryer vent pipe

Can a dryer vent pipe go through a gas hot water tank closet? It does not end in the closet but goes through. I was worried that if it separates and leaks lint, that lint is flammable...

If it is bothering you, mention your concern to the buyer. They could use some aluminum tape to secure it better if they wish. It would likely not make my report. Like Joshua said, "No issue".

Or there could be a gas leak and it can travel through the vent into the laundry room. Just kidding . I agree with the others.
