I have a dryer I think its vents are clogged (seeing too much lint also dust
when cleaning the house). Its a 9 years old house and I think its never been
replace and I like to inspect it and replace/upgrade to newer metal duct.
Appreciate any advise on this.

You don't say what the duct instalation is like. Is it completely
visible to you? Or is some of it hidden in the walls?? If it
is visibel to you then you can partily dismantle it and take it
outside and clean out the lint with a stick, compressed air,
or even a snake. If the vent is not completely visible and
can't be dismantled, then you need to try to figure out how to
get a snake into the ductwork. I unclogged a pair of dryer vents
on a duplex that I own by removing the roof caps and dropping a
plumbers snake down the duct. I had the tennents set their
dryers on cool dry so that they would be blowing air up the
vent. As the snake loosened the lint, it came blowing up and
out the vent. When i was done I had one heck of a mess to
clean up off the roof and front yard.
Just my $0.02 worth. Hope it helps
