While many of us are aware of the dangers that come along with kitchen fires, you may not realize that another common appliance is worth maintaining in order to keep your home safe from accidental fires.
According to the United States Fire Administration (USFA), approximately 2,900 house fires are caused by clothes dryers each year. While it’s recommended that people clean their lint trap after each load of laundry, many people aren’t aware that the build up that occurs in the dryer vent ductwork should be cleaned at least once a year.
One top-rated Amazon gadget makes it easy to remove dryer lint is the Sealegend Dryer Vent Cleaner Kit, and with spring cleaning in full effect, there's never been a better time to add it to your cleaning lineup.
What is it?
The Sealegend Dryer Vent Cleaner Kit comes with everything you need to remove the excess lint that builds up in hard-to-reach areas of your dryer. Each kit includes one vacuum hose attachment, one 2.6 foot cleaning pipe, and a flexible lint brush.
The handy extendible hose attaches to most vacuum models, and allows for easy access to tricky cleaning sports like inside dryer vents, underneath refrigerators, and in tight corners. It can also be used to remove buildup from your exterior dryer vent and avoid costly cleaning services.
What people are saying
As Amazon's best-selling vacuum hose, the Sealegend dryer vent kit has earned thousands of rave reviews from shoppers. It currently has a 4.1-star rating based on more than 5,000 customer reviews, as shoppers have called it their "most worthwhile purchase" made this year.
One reviewer found that their dryer runs "so much more efficiently" after being thoroughly cleaned of excess lint. They added that it also "dries way faster since the airway is clear."
Another shopper called this cleaning kit a "must have" as the hose attachment "keeps the dust and debris from getting blown around" while you clean.
"[Does a] super job of removing hidden lint," one customer wrote.
"I highly recommend this product," added another.
While many reviewers had a positive experience with the Sealegend kit, other cautioned that it "doesn’t work in all dryers." Some found the cleaning head to be "too big" to fit into their dryer's vent, so you may want to check your dimensions before ordering one of these cleaning kits.
With spring cleaning now well underway, it's time to consider the best ways to tackle those tricky spots in your home. Dryers are an often overlooked area to clean, but one that should definitely be on your list to tackle this season.
Luckily, the Sealegend Dryer Vent Cleaner Kit makes it easy to remove built-up dryer lint that can contribute to dangerous dryer fires. Shoppers just recommend double-checking that it will fit inside your dryer's vents ahead of time so you avoid any frustration when it comes time to cleaning it.
