All of our technicians hold a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician (C-DET) credential.
This is the ONLY nationally recognized certification for dryer vent cleaning.
Hiring a CSIA Certified Exhaust Technician® means you are trusting your home and family to someone who has spent countless hours studying for (and passing) an extensive exam covering everything from the proper inspection and maintenance of dryer vents to the applicable codes and standards relating to these systems. Many of the current C-DET Certified Techs have participated and passed a rigorous two-day workshop where they have learned directly from some of the most respected experts in the chimney and venting industry.
The C-DET credential is the only nationally-recognized credential of its kind.
During a typical inspection CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician® examines, cleans and verifies that the venting system is sized and installed correctly. For example, plastic transition ducts (joining the dryer to the wall) should be replaced with metal ducts because it is non-flammable, unlike plastic. Annual dryer exhaust vent inspections (also known as dryer exhaust duct inspections) are more necessary due to the complex construction of today’s homes. Dryers in newer homes are typically located away from outside walls in bathrooms, kitchens and in hall closets which is convenient, but potentially dangerous from a safety standpoint. These locations mean longer venting distances often installed with more bends. As a result, dryer ducts are harder to access and this additional length creates more surface area where lint can collect and animals and birds can hide.
So, in addition to keeping you safe, an annual clothes dryer exhaust inspection by a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician® can also increase the efficiency of your clothes dryer and decrease the wear on your appliance and your clothing ... ultimately saving you money.
