In the vents of your clothes dryer, lint and other debris can accumulate and build blockage and resistance. This creates a dangerous situation that may result in carbon monoxide poisoning or a dryer vent fire. For these reasons, regular dryer vent inspections and servicing are critical for the safety of your home and family. At Dr. Lint, we take pride in quality and excellence of service. We ensure all of our dryer vent service technicians are CSIA C-DET certified, so you know you’re getting the best service possible.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) regulates chimney and venting professionals with safety and performance measures. The CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician (C-DET) is the only nationally recognized dryer vent cleaning certification. The technicians who possess the CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician certificate have been formally tested by the CSIA on their knowledge and understanding of proper maintenance and servicing of dryer exhaust systems.
Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians do more than clean out dryer vents, they also inspect the dryer system to ensure it is operating in accordance with the many codes and industry standards. By keeping your dryer vent system up to standards, you can reduce the risk of complications and hazards that can come with age and use.
During the initial visit to a home our technicians will check to make sure the proper vent material is being used in the system, and check that the mechanical and electrical elements of the dryer are in proper working condition. These code and safety checks will be done in addition to monitoring the lint accumulation in the exhaust vents and cleaning the system if needed. Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians are qualified and specially trained to recognize safety concerns with your dryer vent so that your household is well protected against possible dryer vent fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
A CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician Certification is the only way you can be certain that your dryer vent cleaning specialist is adequately trained and knowledgeable on all relevant subject matter. The exam tests candidates on their expertise on all subject matter relating to dryer exhaust vent cleaning and safety. The 50 question test ensures that each professional understands carbon monoxide poisoning and dryer vent fire prevention along with cleaning and servicing codes and best practices. Once this test is completed with a score of 80 percent or higher the technician will be certified in all aspects of dryer vent servicing in residential and commercial buildings.
At Dr. Lint, we value continued education and we make it a priority for each of our service technicians to stay current on codes and regulations within the industry. Our technicians make sure that they have done all that they can to provide the best dryer vent service to your home and to ensure that your family and home stay safe from the dangers of a neglected dryer.
