You may be doing this already, but it is important to perform this step again right before you go into a more intense cleaning session. Next, you are going to want to go to your local hardware store and pick up a dryer cleaning tool kit. This will include attachments and scrub for your drill in order to get down into the dryer’s vents. Next, go to the back of your dryer.

Once you are at the back of your dryer, you are going to want to disconnect the main vent line from the dryer. When that is disconnected, you can go ahead and start using the attachments to clean the dryer vent. After you’re done and you have successfully reinstalled the parts, you will have a safer dryer for your home.
