The importance of dryer duct cleaning should never be underestimated. If it is not done regularly, the risk of fire increases dramatically. Besides, the appliance is less efficient and uses up more energy, in addition to the clothes coming out too hot or moist as a result.
The cleaning starts with inspection of the duct. The lint built up inside is loosened and extracted with a special brush that does not leave even a single fiber on the surface. Eventually, all the lint is out and the hot air can move in the duct freely.
The lint trap requires thorough cleaning as well. It is usually not challenging to remove any accumulations by hand. If there is a need for using tools, they should be safe to use without damaging the trap.
If the inspection shows damage to any of the vent components, timely repair is required. Small holes and cracks need sealing. The best sealant is airtight and can withstand high temperature. It is chosen in line with the make of the duct. All sections should be adjusted to fit tightly as well.
In case the duct, outside box or any attachment part is damaged beyond repair or is extensively worn, it should be replaced. It is always best to opt for a more effective, stronger and more durable component. Rigid metal ducts, for instance, may be more challenging to install, but they last much longer than their counterparts. Besides, due to their smooth surface, they are less likely to trap lint.
