A clothes dryer is one appliance that makes life easier because it dries your washed laundry in a timely manner. However, to make sure the dryer is always working efficiently, you need to maintain its upkeep. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who tend to forget about this responsibility and end up damaging their dryer.
Leaving the dryer vent unclean is one of the most common mistakes people make. Although it's normal to see lint accumulate in the system, it puts you in a dangerous situation if you don't remove it quickly.
The dryer vent is an important component of any dryer system because it's where the hot air passes through. If the dryer vent gets clogged, it will have difficulty blowing air, and it could end up overheating. If the dryer overheats, the stored heat will ignite the lint and other textile fibers – putting you at a higher risk of encountering a fire and fire damage.
According to the US Fire Administration, 34% of the 2,900 annually reported dryer fires are caused by a clogged dryer vent. It's a very common disaster that could've been easily prevented with proper maintenance.
