DRYER VENT CLOGGING: WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT FIRES
Of course, scheduling regular professional cleaning & maintenance is key when it comes to your dryer vents – but, there are also some home remedy measures you can take to ensure your vents stay clean:
Take care that you’re not overloading your washing machine. Sure, it can be tempting to toss in a bunch of clothes in one load – but, doing this can lead to rapid buildup of potentially harmful debris. An overloaded washing machine won’t retain the right amount of moisture, meaning that your dryer will have to work twice as hard – all of which contributes to more debris, in a shorter amount of time.
Use fabric softener in place of dryer sheets. If you’ve been using dryer sheets, don’t! Fabric softener will get the job done just as well as dryer sheets, without contributing to debris buildup. Dryer sheets tend to break into tiny pieces during a cycle, which can dirty your vents in no time.
Regularly check the outside opening of your dryer vent. By doing so, you’ll be able to stay on top of when it may be time to schedule another professional dryer vent cleaning.
