Clothes Dryer Safety
The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires was lack of maintenance followed by mechanical/part failure.
- Do not operate the dryer without a lint filter. Before each use, the lint filter should be cleaned.
- Turn the dryer off when you are leaving your home.
- The dryer should be plugged into a suitable electrical outlet as overloaded outlets can result in blown fused or tripped circuits breakers.
- Keep your dryer area clear of combustibles.
