Folks In Tulsa Trust Dryer Vent Cleaning & Repairs
By Our Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians (CDET)
Did you know that thousands of house fires are started by clogged dryer vents each and every year? According to the U.S. Fire Administration, the number is just shy of 3,000, while the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that dirty dryer vent-related fires sit around 4,300 a year. Either way, that’s too many. The resulting property loss is in the millions and around 100 people are injured every year.
But it doesn’t have to be this way…
Dryer vent cleaning is an often overlooked part of home and property maintenance, but here at C&C Chimney, we recognize the importance of regular dryer vent cleaning, and encourage all of our customers in Tulsa to have their vents inspected on a yearly basis. Most clothes dryer fires can be prevented by scheduling dryer vent cleanings with a professional, experienced, and Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician (C-DET).
The C-DET credential is the ONLY nationally recognized credential for dryer vent cleaning.
In order to obtain the C-DET certification, technicians are required to take a comprehensive exam and prove their proficiency and knowledge in the space. And because certification through CSIA isn’t a once-and-done thing, your tech will continue to learn and accrue CEUs each year. What does hiring a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician mean for you?
It means you can be confident the individual working on your dryer is expertly trained in dryer operations, proper venting, dryer vent clearances, dryer vent rerouting, dryer vent cleaning, dryer vent maintenance, dryer vent testing, and dryer vent safety. You’re guaranteed expert results, mess-free service, and a job well done. For your safety and peace of mind.
How Often Do You Need To Clean Your Dryer Vents?
The frequency of dryer vent cleanings will depend upon use. If you own a hotel or other business that does a great deal of laundry each and every day — or if you’re a mom or dad who feels like you’re running a hotel and doing a great deal of laundry each and every day — you may need to have your dryer vents cleaned annually. Others may be able to go longer between cleanings.
The best thing to do is to schedule an annual dryer vent inspection, so you know exactly when a cleaning is needed. You can also keep an eye out for these tell-tale warning signs:
- Longer dry times
- Hot clothes and a hot dryer
- Burning smells or other strange odors
- The vent hood fails to open when the dryer is in use
- Lint gathers around the dryer or around the end cap at the outside termination
