While your clothes dryer can be a life saver when you finish washing your clothes, it can also be a hazard if it's not properly maintained. So that you can avoid needing property restoration in Stormville as a result of fiery problems with your clothes dryer, here you'll find some tips on how to clean it.

How to Clean Your Clothes Dryer

Learn About Your Clothes Dryer

Read your owner's manual thoroughly so you know specific instructions on how to clean the exact model of clothes dryer you have.

Prepare for the Job

After that, prepare for the job: unplug the machine and move it away from the wall (if needed), so you can work safely and comfortably. Likewise, gather your tools: mild soap, a vacuum (and its nozzles), water, a broom, a dustpan, clean cloth.

Clean the Dryer

The next step is to start cleaning the clothes dryer:
  • Empty the lint trap and wash it with water and soap to remove lint that may have gotten stuck.
  • Use a vacuum to clean off your dryer of any fabric that may have gotten through the lint trap.
  • Detach the pipe that goes from the dryer into the wall (the vent pipe) and vacuum it clean.
  • Wipe dust off the exterior of the dryer with a clean cloth.

Clean Around the Dryer

You should also take care of what's nearby your clothes dryer: sweep away any debris, dirt, or other filth that may be around it. Also, ensure there aren't any flammable objects near the dryer.

Restore the Dryer

Once you're done cleaning the dryer and the area surrounding it, start to restore it. You should re-attach the vent pipe, put the lint trap back in, place the dryer on its original position, and plug it in.

Call a Professional Team

Finally, we strongly suggest that you call a professional team, even if you maintain your dryer on your own, as they can provide expert service for it.
