Don’t underestimate the power of appliance service and maintenance. It’s important you keep your home appliances running smooth and efficiently at all times, especially when you could ultimately face fire hazard for not doing so!
How many homes rely on their home appliances for chores? After all, that’s what they’re for, right?
So you’ve already spent time and money buying the appliance your kitchen or laundry room needs, now it’s time to regularly provide maintenance and appliance service!
Today’s post will focus on one very special artifact most US homes rely on: the clothes dryer! The dryer handles all clothes in less than an hour, and is also a lifesaver when the weather isn’t so warm for line-drying! For this and more, we all love our clothes dryer.
Make sure you don’t let your dryer become a fire hazard, because it doesn’t receive regular and adequate cleaning. Providing frequent maintenance and service to your dryer could ultimately save your life!
The main service your dryer needs, is vent cleaning. Keeping your dryer vent clean, brings many benefits! Removing clogs and built up lint improves fire safety, reduces utility bills, decreases mold and mildew growth, it saves time, it increases the lifespan of your dryer and clothes, and may even prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
It’s compulsory you hire professional cleaners to take care of the issue, so nothing fails! It needs to be done at least once a year depending on the size of the household and dryer usage, however if you need it every 6 months, go for it! (don’t risk it!).
Keep in mind that dryer vents accumulate highly flammable lint, which could cause household fires. According to the US Fire Administration’s National Fire Data Center, clothes dryers are responsible for over 15,000 fires in the US at a yearly basis!
