Hello everyone! First time homeowner here as well and hunting the net for tips - mostly preventative stuff because right now my home is in working condition. I am, however, regretting not hanging out with my dad around the house to pickup some tips.
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
