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 accumulation.
- Gas vents for water heaters and dryers should be maintained in good repair and continuous to the outside
