You most likely rely on your washer and dryer at least a couple of times a week in order to keep your clothes, linens, and more clean. Unfortunately, there are a number of things that can go wrong with washers and dryers in particular at a moment’s notice. The last thing you want is to have a pile of wet clothes with no way to dry them. On the other hand, most problems associated with dryers can be avoided, and we’re here to provide you with a few preventative maintenance tips.
If your dryer is still using vinyl tubing, you should consider having it replaced. Not only is vinyl more restrictive than the alternative, aluminum tubing, it also fails to meet several federal safety guidelines. Dealing with a broken dryer is one thing, but burning down your house is definitely something every homeowner should be concerned with avoiding.
This may seem obvious, but lint needs to be constantly removed from the filter. And we don’t mean once or twice a month. Every time you use the dryer, the filter should be cleaned. Too much lint in the filter is another safety hazard, and it could cause long-term damage to your dryer.
Giving the dryer’s interior a complete clean is also a good idea. There may be lint you can’t see or reach, and other debris that can build up over time. If you need assistance when it comes to dryer cleaning, we can help. Contact the professionals at Superior Air Duct Cleaning for more details!
