Ed offers tips on relocating and setting up a new laundry station in your home.

  • In order to avoid stepping on laundry baskets and detergents, don't locate the laundry station in a high traffic area.

  • Avoid putting a laundry station in the kitchen. Washing machines produce high amounts of humidity and dryers produce lint, which could make a mess in the kitchen.

  • Have a professional electrician install an outlet where the dryer and washer will be placed.

  • Plumbing will be needed. Both hot and cold water need to be run to the washer. A drain will also be necessary.

  • The dryer must also be vented to the outside of the home.
