Why is cleaning your dryer vent important?
It’s not just about keeping your dryer clean, as a matter of fact, dryer vent cleaning is a must to keep your home safe. Did you know that dirty dryer vents are one of the leading causes of domestic fires? A dry vent will also lead to a more efficient drying time and cleaner lint screens while increasing its lifespan.
Clean Your Dryer Vent and Prevent a Fire
It is important to know that dryers produce and accumulate highly flammable lint. Failing to regularly clean the lint out of the system is the leading cause of dryer fires. To make sure your drying is in top condition, it should be inspected and cleaned by a professional at least once per year. If your dryer usage is high, you may want to consider increasing that maintenance visit twice a year. By doing so, your dryer will never stop working right before you have a big load of wet clothes you need dry as soon as possible while keeping your home safe.
DIY Dryer Cleaning vs. Professional Maintenance
Giving regular maintenance to your appliances is quite important, and dryers are not the exception. Hiring professional services to keep your dryer up and running is necessary, but there are also a few things that you need to do regularly:
Cleaning the dryer filter
Every dryer has a filter that has to be cleaned after each use. This filter can be located outside or inside the dryer, through a small door. All you have to do is open the door, pull out the filter and remove all the lint that builds up during the drying cycle.
After a few uses, cleaning products might clog the filter. To prevent that, simply wash your filter with soapy water and a sponge or brush. Make sure it is completely dry before returning the filter to its place.
Cleaning the Drum
The drum is the area where your clothes go in and luckily it doesn’t need a lot of maintenance, however, you can wipe it down every now and then to prevent the build-up of debris, especially if you have pets.
How do pros clean the dryer vent?
As we all know by now, professional dryer vent cleaning services are a must. But if you are curious about how they do it, we will walk you thru the process.
Before the technician starts with the cleaning part, he will locate the vent at the back of the dryer and also the dryer exhaust vent at your home’s exterior. The second step is to unplug the dryer. If you have a gas dryer, the supply valve must be turned off while cleaning.
After that, the technician will pull the dryer away from the wall to disconnect the duct and start the cleaning part. Using the proper safety equipment, the technician will remove lint from the hole at the back of the dryer with a vacuum and then will continue to work on the exterior vent.
When finished cleaning, he will inspect the ducts to make sure they are in good condition, without any damage, and up to safety codes.
Once the technician determines your dryer is good to go, he will go ahead and reattach the ductwork and vent cover, put the dryer back into its place, plug it in, turns the gas back on, and test the dryer.
Additional benefits of giving maintenance to your dryer
When your dryer is functioning at its best, you are also saving money on your energy bills! Malfunctioning dryers take longer to complete the drying cycle, wasting a lot of electricity or gas, and leading to higher energy bills. Also, when a dryer vent is clogged, may allow critters like mice to get into your home.
