Clothing Dryer Cleaning & Maintenance Do's and Don'ts
Laundry is almost certainly a part of your daily routine. But did you realize how crucial it is to maintain the safety of your home's clothes dryer?
You can prevent a clothes dryer fire by following a few simple safety tips:
- Have a professional install and service your dryer.
- If you don't have a lint filter, don't use the dryer.
- Before or after each load of laundry, make sure to clean the lint filter. Remove any lint that has accumulated in the drum's vicinity.
- To maintain optimum airflow and drying time, rigid or flexible metal venting material should be employed.
- Ascertain that the air exhaust vent pipe is unobstructed and that the outdoor vent flap opens when the dryer is in use. Clean lint out of the vent pipe once a year, or more frequently if your clothing is taking longer than usual to dry, or hire a dryer lint removal service to do it for you.
- Maintain the condition of your dryers. A certified specialist should inspect gas dryers to ensure that the gas line and connection are in good working order and clear of leaks.
- Make sure you're using the correct socket and outlet, and that the machine is correctly connected.
- Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for use and avoid overloading your dryer.
- If you leave the house or even go to bed, turn off the dryer.
- Clear the area around your dryer of anything that can catch fire, such as boxes, cleaning products, and clothing. Clothing that has come into touch with combustible liquids such as gasoline, paint thinner, or similar solvents should be dried outside before washing and drying as usual.
