Dryer Vent Maintenance Tips

What are some things you have done within your home to prevent unnecessary risks and keep things running efficiently? Consider adding dryer vent cleaning to that list. Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning wants to help protect your family and your investment by offering you our dryer vent cleaning service. You may not realize that dryers can present a risk to your household, but here are some dryer maintenance tips to avoid those risks.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Clean the Lint Trap Often

This is something that needs to be done after every load of laundry. Even though the lint trap catches some of the lint that comes through your dryer, dust and debris still build up in the vent over time, becoming trapped there. Facial tissues and other forgotten items run through the dryer cycle, creating quite a mess. While regularly cleaning the lint trap is necessary, it is not enough to operate your dryer safely.

Annual Dryer Vent Cleaning

With almost 3,000 dryer fires and over $1 billion in property loss yearly, this is a valid concern and risk for anyone who owns and operates a dryer in their home. When you schedule an annual dryer vent cleaning, you will help your family to avoid becoming a statistic. Not only will your home be safer, but your dryer will operate more efficiently and save you money on utility bills.

Keep the Area Around the Dryer Clear

Lowe’s Air Duct Cleaning understands that not everyone lives in a home with a sprawling, magazine-worthy laundry room, and you may not have a lot of space to store your laundry supplies. Even though it might be tight in your laundry room, you must keep the area around your dryer clear. Don’t stack things on top of your dryer; keep the floor around your dryer vacuumed.
