7 Dryer Maintenance Tips You Need To Know

📍 7 Dryer Maintenance Tips You Need To Know 📍 Following regular maintenance will help your appliance run efficiently and safely.
1️⃣ Don’t overload your dryer. Large loads take longer to dry and use more energy.
2️⃣ Check the vent cap outside. The dryer vent is located outside of your house. It’s a good idea to periodically check to make sure air is coming out of the vent while clothes are drying. Clean the exhaust vent every 2 years.
3️⃣ Deep clean your lint screen. Don’t only clean the lint screen after every load — wash it every three months with a bit of laundry detergent and rinse it thoroughly or pop it in the dishwasher to clear residue left by dryer sheets.
4️⃣ Clean out the lint trap. Remove the screen and use a dryer lint brush to clean inside the trap itself.
5️⃣Clean the drum. Give the inside a wipe down with a microfiber cloth and a bit of rubbing alcohol to remove any dryer sheet residue. Let it dry thoroughly.
6️⃣Replace vinyl or plastic exhaust vents with metal. Plastic exhaust vents are more likely to catch fire. Play it safe with metal.
7️⃣ Consult operating instructions prior to drying an item that has been soiled with chemicals such as gasoline, cooking oil or paint.
