Many individuals today overlook the need for preventative maintenance. As a result, they wind up paying for costly clothes dryer repair services in Niagara Falls, Milton and Pickering. So, when your appliances breakdown or malfunction, Platinum Appliance Repair is the company to call. As an appliance user, there are certain warning signs that indicate the need for service and possibly repairs. Knowing what to look for could mean the difference between an inexpensive repair, and having to purchase a new clothes dryer. Watch out for the following:
Clothing comes out too hot to the touch – If your dryer is extremely hot to the touch or your clothing burns your hands, your clothes dryer is also burning up a lot of energy. This runs up the cost of your monthly utility bills in the process. If left uncorrected, you will have to replace the blower and heating element a lot sooner than normal. The best advice is to schedule Platinum Appliance Repair for service.
Longer drying cycles – When your appliance takes an abnormally long time to dry your garments, it may be time to contact us for dryer repair services. If you have to run your clothing through two or three drying cycles, it could mean that you have a clogged dryer vent. Your dryer pushes the moist, hot air out of your clothing. If debris and lint are blocking the vent, the moisture cannot evaporate.
There’s a burned odor or smell – If you smell something burning in your laundry closet, instead of that fresh fabric sheet scent that you are used to... the exhaust tube is full of debris and lint. If the passageway is not cleaned out on a regular basis, you’re putting your family and home at risk of a house fire. You do not want to become a statistic. You should call for dryer repair services.
You haven’t serviced your dryer since . . . ? – If you haven’t scheduled regular dryer preventative maintenance, you’re may be putting your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, or a house fire. This is not something you want to ignore. A preventative dryer maintenance plan will save you money on repair and replacement costs; as well as your monthly utility bills in Milton, Niagara Falls, and Pickering.
Dryer vent hood won’t open (homes with dryer vent openings on the outside) – Debris and lint around the dryer vent hose, or the wall opening outside, is a warning sign that indicates the exhaust tube or vent is clogged. This can also keep the vent hood flap from opening normally.
In either case, your best option is to call Platinum Appliance Repair. We’ll dispatch our team quickly to ensure that your dryer problem is resolved immediately. If there are any broken parts that need to be replaced, you can be assured that we carry replacements.
