Ventilation – Over time the dryer vent can become clogged with lint and other debris. It is a good idea to pull the dryer out and check this ventilation line periodically to ensure proper ventilation.
Outdated Plumbing – In older homes the water supply lines and shutoffs for the laundry room were composed of plastic, flexible copper and other materials. Over time many of these materials have become brittle and susceptible to water leaks. These old supply lines and shutoffs should be replaced to provide protection.
