If you’re like many people selling a condo or loft in DTLA, you want everything to be perfect when the buyer’s home inspector comes to check things out – and part of that includes cleaning out your dryer vent.
You should clean your dryer vent at least three or four times a year to prevent a potentially deadly fire, but in case it’s been a while (we understand), here’s how to do it.
How to Clean a Dryer Vent Before You Sell Your Condo in DTLA
First things first: you’ll need a screwdriver, a dryer vent brush and a vacuum cleaner with a hose. From there:
- Unplug your dryer. If possible, pull it out a foot or two before you start working – that way, you’ll have plenty of space. It’s incredibly important to unplug it, so make sure you do before you work on it.
- Disconnect the vent. Unscrew the screw on the clamp that holds the dryer tube to the vent, then slide the vent off.
- Reach into the dryer and pull out the lint. The dryer lint may be piled up in the area where you just removed the vent.
- Clean the vent in the wall. You can brush it out with a dryer lint brush as far as you can reach. Then, use the attachment hose of your vacuum cleaner to remove whatever remains.
