Clean Your Washing Machine Dryer Vent More Often

Clean Your Washing Machine Dryer Vent More Often

Nov 28. Let Me Repair.

Most people think that cleaning the dryer typically means removing the lint trap and cleaning and placing it back. But it's not just that; the bigger concern is that simply removing the filter won't keep your dryer operating properly or safely. It might be possible that the filter is blocked even if there isn't any lint on it, and there is no need to mention what might be happening in the drum or the dryer vent.

Cleaning the dryer vent more frequently is definitely needed because, if not done,

  • The effectiveness of your dryer can be affected by a blocked dryer vent.
  • Overheats
  • Inject carbon monoxide into your house
  • Provide cozy nesting spots for small animals and birds
  • Can Cause a fire (more than 15,000 residential fires are caused each year as a result of clogged dryer vents).

Let's look forward to it:

Lint Trap Cleaning: The filter can already be blocked if you're using fabric softener dryer sheets. The residue left behind by dryer sheets can accumulate in the filter's webbing to the point where it forms a solid, invisible wall that prevents hot air from entering the drum and venting out of the appliance. By adding a small amount, check to see if water passes through the filter. If the water pools, rather than flowing through the filter, clean the filter using warm, soapy water and a scrub brush until the water flows freely. Check the lint trap every time you use the dryer or with a couple of uses. You should wash the filter every three months to ensure your washing machine dryer is venting correctly.

Drum Cleaning: Unless one of your children has left gum in their pants pocket, the drum usually doesn't need to be cleaned. Gum, crayons, or other greasy residues can cause severe damage to your washer and dryer and your unprepared laundry. In order to remove it, scrape away as much as possible with a spatula that won't scratch the paint. Now heat the drum for around 15 minutes and use a few damp cloths to loosen and clean off the residue. When the drum is still warm, wash it with a rag dampened in hot water and a small amount of laundry detergent. Lastly, wipe the drum with a dry cloth to get rid of all the dirt, soap, and moisture.

Dryer Vent Cleaning: After passing through the lint trap and the vent, the hot air leaves the drum. Although lint traps are helpful, they can't always capture the lint and other debris transported by the hot air entering and exiting the dryer vent. Lint can accumulate and jam the vent tube internally if it is twisted or kinked. To clean the vent tube, use a shop vac and round brush, but that doesn't address the lint accumulation inside the dryer or the wall. That's why it is preferable to have us visit you and clean it for you since we utilize the best tools and techniques. Vent cleaning should be done every one to two years or as necessary, depending on the size of your family.
