Every year, manufacturers come out with increasingly smart, energy efficient and elegant home appliances. That said, no matter how great they perform, they can still break down – sometimes surprisingly early in their life! At Ateliers G. Paquette, we noticed that few people know how they can significantly extend the useful life of their appliances by taking a few simple precautions. Read this blog post to find out how you can keep your dryer in good condition for as long as possible.

What Are the Worst Things You Can Do to Your Dryer?

Here are some of the bad habits that will wear down your dryer and eventually cause major defects:

  • Leaving wet clothes in the drum for several hours (or days!)

  • Neglecting the ventilation system that removes heat and moisture

  • Omitting to clean the lint screen before each cycle

  • Frequently overloading the dryer by filling it with more than one regular load of clothing.

How Can You Prevent Dryer Problems?

To prevent severe mechanical failure (or even worse, a dryer fire), you simply need to be vigilant by avoiding doing any of the above, and by periodically having an inspection and cleaning by a professional technician. These checkups should be performed approximately every 4-5 years. The checks will include, among other things, making sure that there is enough air circulation to dislodge any lint accumulated in the most inaccessible corners of your dryer and evacuation ducts.
