Certified Dryer Vent Service & Repair

The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that you have a dryer vent inspection performed every year by a CSIA-certified Dryer Exhaust Technician. Because quality is important to us, Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc.’s team includes C-DET Certified technicians who can properly inspect your vent for blockages, fire hazards, proper flow, and assembly.

Dryer Vent Inspections Are Important For Several Reasons

It’s easy to overlook your dryer vent since it’s largely out of sight, but there are a number of safety and efficiency reasons to make sure you schedule an inspection every year, and have your vent regularly cleaned.

Dryer lint is highly flammable, and a blocked vent is a serious fire hazard. As your dryer vent does its job, lint can build up over time. Often enough, it’s this accumulation of lint, which both constricts the vent, making it harder for the hot air to get out, and creates a serious fire hazard.

Take a look at this image of a typical dryer vent cleaning — it’s amazing how much lint can accumulate, even with just average dryer use.

The Home Structure Fires report released in April 2013 by the National Fire Protection Association‘s Fire Analysis and Research Division shows that during 2007-2011, clothes dryers or washers were involved in an average of more than 15,000 home fires each year. Along with more than $200 million in average annual property damage, those fires caused many injuries, and many deaths.

Regular dryer vent inspections and cleanings help keep your home and family safe.

Dryer not working well? It may not be the machine.

Another effect of a blocked dryer vent is inefficiency. If your clothes aren’t drying, or if it’s taking far longer than it used to, it may not be that your machine is failing — a clogged vent might be blocking the air from venting, making your dryer work inefficiently and slowly. That means you’re wasting time, money and energy.

Dryer Vent Repairs? We Can Help

Every dryer venting system will be slightly different, installed to work with specific homes and specific appliances. But several things hold true: a dryer vent’s exhaust must always be expelled outside the home, and metal — not plastic — connectors should be used for proper vent runs.

Along with your regularly scheduled dryer vent inspections and cleanings, we can help with any repairs that might be necessary to keep your dryer vent functioning safely and efficiently.
