Not performing regular lint cleaning can leave the dryer with excessive accumulation of particles. These particles and debris, especially lint, is the prime culprit of many dryer fire episodes. Lint buildup is somewhat inevitable during the drying operation. Some of the clothing fibers would really get jammed into the dryer. Although lint traps are available, we cannot be totally assured that all of the lint can be ensnared therein. Some of them would really go to some other parts of the dryer. And when they are left unclean for a quite a long time, excessive lint buildup is something that we have to deal with.
It is never good and safe to have excessive lint buildup. Number one because excessive lint buildup can make the dryer inefficient. Clothes will dry longer and there can be times that no matter how long, clothes will not dry up completely hence wasting energy. Additionally, leaving the dryer with so much lint increases the risk of dryer fire dramas. Lint overtime causes restriction in the airways such that overheating can always happen. Heat plus much lint can really cause a fire to start right in the dryer. Avoiding above situations can be effectively done with lint cleaning.
Lint cleaning has to be done regularly and even more often if we dry loads and loads of clothes. What we should do is we have to clear the lint trap before and after using the dryer as this place is where most of the lint goes during the operation. Take away the lint trap and brush off the lint accumulated. After such, rinse it with hot water to as well remove the detergent residues in the lint trap.
But lint cleaning should not just end up with cleaning the lint trap. We also have to consider ways to intensively remove the lint in the dryer like having professionals take care of our lint cleaning operation. Professional lint cleaning technicians have specialized way of cleaning up dryers to help make us sure that it would run efficiently and more significantly, reduce the risk of dryer fire. Taking some effort on lint cleaning both personally and professionally would do out a lot of good in the end.
