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 chimney, a wall, a ceiling,
or any concealed space of a building which can
ii
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
ii
creating a fire hazard as well as increasing drying
ii
times. Use an approved vent hood to terminate the
duct outdoors, and seal all joints with metal foil 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 exhaust system. Plugging
