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