PBA Tip of the Day brought to you by Richard Black with Appliance Pros(602) 501-5501.
Lint filters catch a great deal of lint during the drying process, but they do not catch all of it. Much of the lint that comes off your clothes can be found in other areas of your dryer, such as the hose and on the inside of the ventilation system.
Make it a habit to clean the lint filter and trap every time you remove a load of clothes from the dryer. It is also a good idea for you to cleanse the inside of the dryer to keep it fresh. Schedule a professional cleaning at least once a year. Without regular lint removal, the motor on your dryer could burn out prematurely and even catch fire. Physically remove the lint filter and wash it in a mild cleansing solution to remove any stubborn pieces of lint. Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you replace it back into the dryer. Having the dryer vent cleaned once a year is a good way to help keep the dryer running efficiently.
