Why Hire a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician?

Many companies offer dryer vent cleaning services, usually as an add-on to another service they specialize in, like carpet cleaning or air duct cleaning.

When it comes to your family's safety and selecting a dryer vent service company, you want to hire the best in the business and have a great customer experience from start to finish.  But with so many options out there, how do you make the right choice?

One way to be certain is to consider the credentials of the company or technician entering your home. 

The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is the leading authority in education and certification for the chimney and venting industry.  They offer the only nationally recognized certification for dryer exhaust technicians who have demonstrated their expertise through rigorous training and testing. 

By hiring a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician (C-DET), you can have peace of mind knowing that you are getting a knowledgeable professional.  These experts have invested countless hours learning and studying everything from building code regulations to fire safety standards, ensuring that they understand the best materials for safe venting and the most effective inspection and cleaning practices.  The C-DET credential signifies a commitment to providing exceptional service and staying ahead in a constantly evolving industry.

During a typical inspection, a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician examines, cleans and verifies that the venting system is sized and installed correctly.  For example, "slinky-foil," vinyl, or plastic transition ducts (joining the dryer to the main vent) should be replaced with heavy metal ducts because it is non-flammable, unlike plastic.  Annual dryer exhaust vent 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.
