Appliance Tips: Clean Your Outdoor Dryer Vent Today

Clean Your Outdoor Dryer Vent

We always say we want you to be thrilled with your appliance purchase.

While we run more than 10,000 service calls each year and are happy to help, we know you would be much happier if your appliance never needed maintenance.

We want your appliance to last a long time as well. Here is a simple tip to help.

Appliance Tip:

Clean Your Outdoor Dryer Vent

Check out your outdoor dryer vent. Remove any buildup that might prevent your dryer from airing out its exhaust. You also want to make sure your flaps can fully close when needed as well.

  1. The vent is there for a reason, you certainly don’t want anything from the exhaust to re-enter the home.
  2. If the flaps do not close, cold air can flow into the dryer and prevent your dryer from heating properly.
  3. Your clothes dry quicker when air can flow freely.

We recommend you clear out any debris and lint from your outdoor dryer vent at least once every six months.

Do it today as one small way to help your dryer perform better and last longer.

Fingerprint resistant stainless steel

Test fingerprint resistant stainless steel at Bekins

Do you like to make cleaning as easy as possible?  We recommend you test fingerprint resistant stainless steel appliances at Bekins.


The fingerprint resistant coating on select Maytag, Whirlpool and KitchenAid appliances makes smudging more difficult on your stainless steel.

It also makes it much easier to clean any smudges that do appear. Maytag recommends a wet rag but sometimes just a microfiber cloth will work. The manufacturers recommend avoiding any cleaners with alcohol in them, such as window cleaner since the alcohol can damage the coating.

Customers seem to appreciate the protection on their refrigerator the most, but you can also get a full suite of fingerprint resistant appliances as well.

Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel makes cleaning easier.
