Tips: Dryer Maintenance

  1. Clean the lint trap regularly. It is important to clean the lint trap after every load to ensure that it is free of debris. This will help your dryer to run more efficiently and reduce the risk of a fire.
  2. Keep the dryer vent clean. The dryer vent should be cleaned at least once a year to remove any lint or other debris that may have accumulated. This will help to improve the efficiency of your dryer and reduce the risk of a fire.
  3. Inspect the vent hose. The vent hose should be inspected regularly to ensure that it is securely connected and not damaged. A damaged vent hose can cause the dryer to run inefficiently and increase the risk of a fire.
  4. Check the drum seals. The drum seals help keep the hot air inside the dryer and prevent clothes from getting caught in the seal. Check the seals regularly and replace them if they are damaged.
  5. Don’t overload the dryer. It is important to avoid overloading the dryer, as this can cause it to run inefficiently and potentially lead to a fire. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the maximum load size for your particular model.

By following these tips for dryer maintenance, you can help keep your dryer running efficiently and extend its lifespan.
