Dryer vent safety
According to the US Fire Administration, between 2002 and 2004, clothes dryers counted for about 15,600 reported structure fires, 15 deaths and 400 injuries annually. “Failure to clean” is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians perform exhaust duct inspections on an annual basis to ensure efficient operation of your clothes dryer system. Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians have passed an extensive exam on the proper inspection and maintenance of dryer vents, including applicable codes and standards relating to these systems. In addition to these safety considerations, annual clothes dryer exhaust inspections by a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician can also increase the efficiency of your clothes dryer and decrease the wear on your appliance, saving you money.
