- FIRE HAZARD - A clothes dryer must be
exhausted outdoors.
Do not exhaust dryer into a chimney, a
wall, a ceiling, an attic, a crawl space or any concealed space
of a building. A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. If
the dryer is not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint will be
expelled into the laundry area. An accumulation of lint in any
area of the home can create a health and fire hazard.
The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors.
Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove
any accumulation of lint around the outdoor exhaust opening
and in the surrounding area.
- FIRE HAZARD -
• Do not allow combustible materials (for example: clothing,
draperies/curtains, paper) to come in contact with exhaust
system. The dryer MUST NOT be exhausted into a chim-
ney, a wall, a ceiling, or any concealed space of a building
which can accumulate lint, resulting in a fire hazard.
Do not screen the exhaust ends of the vent system, or use
any screws, rivets or other fasteners that extend into the
duct to assemble the exhaust system. Lint can become
caught in the screen, on the screws or rivets, clogging the
duct work and creating a fire hazard as well as increasing
drying times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the
duct outdoors, and seal all joints with duct tape. All male
duct pipe fittings MUST be installed downstream with the
flow of air.
- FIRE HAZARD - Exceeding the length of
duct pipe or number of elbows allowed in the "MAXIMUM
LENGTH" charts can cause an accumulation of lint in the ex-
haust system. Plugging the system could create a fire hazard,
as well as increase drying times.
