The majority of ship board fires originate in the engine room, but a substantial number of preventable fires occur in laundry rooms due to poor practices.

Lint

The main cause of dryer fires is the build up of lint inside and under the dryer. Regular maintenance should include accessing dryer vents and vent hoses to ensure they are clear. The build-up of lint causes dryers to run longer and hotter than they should. Heat limiting switches can wear out and fail from fatigue.
