Week 1 - Safety in the Laundry Room

In 2010-2014 U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 15, 970 home fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines. These fires resulted in annual losses estimated 13 civilian deaths and 440 injuries. The majority of the fires started from clothes dryers. Owners failing to clean them caused about 1/3 of the fires, whereas electrical failures caused the majority of them. The initial fires start because of something being dried (clothes) or a byproduct of the drying (lint). To prevent fires from dryers you should use a lint filter and clean it before each use. Clean lint out of the vent pipe to reduce the risk of fire. Dryers should be in good working condition at all times.
