Clothes Dryer Maintenance and Safety

A Message for Members who have a Clothes Dryer in their Manor

It is important to properly clean and maintain your clothes dryer to ensure it works properly and does not create a fire hazard.

Every time you use a clothes dryer, be sure the lint screen is clean and free of lint debris, because lint that builds up on the screen can cause an overall problematic and potentially dangerous situation to the dryer’s overall functionality. Lint can also accumulate behind the dryer. If you have a clothes dryer in your home, it is of utmost importance to frequently clean behind the dryer and keep the area surrounding the dryer clear of all lint and debris at all times. The common laundry facilities are periodically cleaned by staff on the behalf of the housing mutuals.
