What is a CSIA- C-DET certified technician?
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 current standards, you can reduce the risk of complications and potential safety hazards that can come with age and use. Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians are qualified and specially trained to recognize safety concerns with your dryer vent so that your household remains 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.
