Are You Remembering to Clean Your Lint Trap?

You already know that Dryer Vent Wizard offers professional dryer vent cleaning, but did you know we also offer professional dryer lint screen, lint trap, and appliance cavity cleaning as part of our maintenance services? Maybe you simply don’t remember to clean out your lint trap every time you use the dryer or maybe you do but haven’t washed it in recent memory. Whatever the case, professional dryer lint screen cleaning is a simple way to improve the efficiency and safety of your dryer.

Why is it so incredibly important to maintain the cleanliness of your lint trap? Your lint trap is designed to catch excess lint, fur/hair, and clothing fibers, all of which you are (hopefully!) remembering to clean out after each dryer use. On top of that repeated use also causes a buildup of oils and residue that clog the tiny holes in your lint trap rendering it less effective. PLUS, when there’s buildup lint can be pushed over the edges of the lint trap and into the dryer cavity where you won’t see it - equaling a major fire hazard.

To avoid these risks you should have your lint trap professionally cleaned at least once a year and between cleanings check on your lint trap to see how much buildup there is. Simply run the lint screen under water and if you see a puddle, scrub with a soft brush, soap and water. When the water runs through the screen again, you’re good! These small steps will save you energy, time, money and the risk of fire.
