Washer fill hoses can crack over time, and create the possibility of flood. It is a good idea to regularly inspect the condition of the hose connections at the water supply tap and at the connections to the washer. Look for cracks, evidence of leaking, or weak spots
Lint build up in the dryer venting reduces efficiency and is also a potential fire hazard. It is a good practice to remove the venting from your dryer and clean out any lint build up, at least on an annual basis. If the venting is not accessible due to being installed in the walls or ceiling, you may want to hire a professional vent cleaning company. This will also help reduce dry time and save you money on power bills.
