    Published on February 20, 2013
    The leading cause of home clothes dryer and washer fires is failure to clean them.

    • Have your dryer installed and serviced by a professional.
    • Do not use the dryer without a lint filter.
    • Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry. Remove lint that has collected around the drum.
    • Rigid or flexible metal venting material should be used to sustain proper air flow and drying time.
    • Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and the outdoor vent flap will open when the dryer is operating. Once a year, or more often if you notice that it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal service do it for you.
    • Keep dryers in good working order. Gas dryers should be inspected by a professional to make sure that the gas line and connection are intact and free of leaks.
    • Make sure the right plug and outlet are used and that the machine is connected properly.
    • Follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and don’t overload your dryer.
    • Turn the dryer off if you leave home or when you go to bed.
