Washer & Dryer Cleaning FAQs
Sediment build-up in a washing machine is a common problem caused by minerals, dirt, and other debris. Hard water with high mineral content can leave deposits on the machine's internal components. Additionally, dirt from clothing and other fabrics can accumulate over time. This build-up can lead to inefficient cleaning performance, leaving your clothes unclean. A deep clean of your washing machine can remove build-up and get it to its former glory.
A partially clogged drain hose or a build-up of debris and detergent can leave your clothes covered in residue. You can check your drain hose from the back of the washing machine and inspect it for clogs.
A buildup of detergent, fabric softener, and other residues may be hard to remove with a simple routine clean. Professional deep cleaning of your washing machine's internal components can remove clogs and a buildup of residue.
Mold or mildew smells in your dryer or on your clothes may be caused by a clogged dryer vent or by leaving damp clothes in the dryer.
Inspect your dryer vent for obstruction or lint buildup, and clean it with a vent brush or vacuum with a hose attachment. If smells linger after cleaning the dryer vent, spray several towels with vinegar or a vinegar and water mixture and run them through several drying cycles.
Performing routine maintenance on your dryer can help prevent fires, expensive repairs, long drying times, and more. Neglecting dryer maintenance can cause the vent to get clogged with lint which may result in long dry times and dryer fires.
It’s estimated that dryers cause 13,820 home fires every year. The large majority of dryer fires could have been prevented by routine maintenance.
Cleaning Inside Dryer Housing
Lint can fit almost anywhere in a dryer, and it’s not uncommon for it to slip into the dryer housing. A clogged lint screen or clogged dryer vent can cause lint to settle in hard-to-reach places.
