Did you know that according to the U.S. Fire Administration, 2,900 clothes dryer fires are reported each year? Many were caused by a failure to clean lint from the clothes dryer ductwork.
Cleaning out your dryer is easy and will save energy by decreasing your drying time. Cleaning consists of a long flexible rod and brush used to clean the dryer ducts and under the lint trap in your appliance.
Always begin by disconnecting the appliance from the A/C Outlet. After removing the lint screen use a small brush with a long handle into the trap area. Gently use the brush to remove lint by guiding to the opening and use a vacuum to further clean lint from under the lint trap.
Now… pull the appliance out and disconnect the transition tubing from your dryer’s exhaust. Vacuum all the debris around the appliance and be sure the slats are clean. Next, inspect the flexible transition for leaks, and replace if required. Otherwise, use a rotary brush and rod to completely remove the trapped lint.
The reaming cleaning is for the ductwork behind the wall, in an attic, or crawlspace. The warm moist air from your clothes dryer must vented to the outside of your home to prevent mold and water damage.
This can be the most difficult part, because of the turns and length of the pipes are on average 23 feet long. Will use our rotary brush and rods, up to 50 feet in some homes, to completely remove the trapped lint and other debris.
Almost there… connect the ductwork and clamp at both ends, slide back into place and connect the A/C. Then turn the clothes dryer on air fluff mode to complete.
Finally, check the dryer exhaust on the outside of your home. Make sure there’s good airflow and that the vent flaps are clean and opening wide. If there is a bid cover, remove clean and replace securely.
If you use dryer sheets, the lint trap will need a regular cleaning to remove the chemicals that build up and clog the mesh screen. Use dish soap and a soft brush like a toothbrush to clean. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to dry before in setting it into the appliance.
