Laundry Room Safety
A laundry room is another area of
fire hazard. Lint and combustible debris can accumulate behind the dryer,
and can ignite when heated.
- Clean dryer lint screens after each use.
- Dryer vents should be continuous to the outside.
- Clean dryer and washer motors as needed to eliminate grease and lint
- Gas vents for water heaters and dryers should be maintained in good
repair and continuous to the outside
