If you have a chimney, then you have likely heard of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America). This amazing non-profit institution prides itself on its ethical standards and passion for keeping homeowners all across the country informed on safe fireplace practices. And if you’re hiring a sweep, you better make sure they hold a CSIA certification!
But the CSIA isn’t just about chimneys. They also specialize in dryer vent cleaning and can certify sweeps to clean and maintain them. We are proud to tell our customers about our Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians on staff, and we strongly encourage everyone to schedule a dryer vent cleaning today – learn more below!
There are many reasons why a clogged or dirty dryer vent can put your home at risk. The biggest reason is how susceptible they are to fires. Dryer fires are known for causing over 15,000 fires per year throughout the United States and this is primarily due to clogs in the dryer vent. There’s no reason not to schedule a cleaning today!
Another reason these cleanings are so important is due to the chance of poisonous toxins entering the home. When vents clog up, fumes can’t escape, and your family becomes exposed to many harmful gases. Thousands of people are sent to the doctor every year due to illness caused by fume inhalation. Keep your family out of harm’s way by investing in us.
