There are many serious issues related to neglected Vents and Appliances.

More Info

DIY or Hire a Professional?

Yes you can. Depending on the details, cleaning your own Dryer Vent may be a fairly Simple, or could be complicated.

Do it Yourself

Most Common Complaint

If your clothes are taking an excessive amount to Dry, then most likely there is a problem with your Dryer Vent.

When your Dryer cannot vent effectively, the Heat sensor inside gets hot and this tells the Dryer to lower the temperature, so even if you have it set to high, it might be operating at medium or Low, or no heat at all

And this is why it is taking so long for your clothes to Dry.

Our Service pays for itself

Yes. Your Clothes Dryer has the Highest Operating cost of any Appliance in your Home.

And if it's taking more than 45 minutes to Dry your Clothes, it's costing you money.

Check out our Dryer Cost Calculator to see approximately how much you are spending, and how much you could potentially save.

Something in the Air

If you are noticing a Large amount of Lint and Debris in the Air or inside you Laundry room, then most likely the Dryer Vent hose has become Disconnected or Damaged.

This is a fairly easy problem to correct and in most cases we do not charge extra for Repairing or Replacing Dryer Vent Hoses.

This can be a Health issue for your family, breathing in these small particles can cause respiratory illness.

Another Dangerous side effect of Disconnected or Damaged hoses is that the Dryer pulls air in through the back of the Appliance, and if the machine is pulling in large amounts of lint it can become a Fire Risk.

Who came up with this one?

Uhm, not really. Plastic Dryer Venting can be very Dangerous.

It's Highly Flammable, Becomes Brittle as it ages, and is easily Damaged.

If you have it in your home, technically it is allowed, but Plastic Dryer Vent Ducting has not been permitted in any New Construction for over 10 years.

And we'd highly recommend replacing it as soon as possible.

Dryer Vent Safety

Nothing Good can come of this

Waste Time and Money and Energy. Could also lead to a disaster such as Mechanical Failure, Water Damage, Mold/Bacterial Growth or even possibly Fire.

Dryer Vent Safety

Condensation Issue

So this is a fairly common complaint we hear, and it can become a serious issue.

Condensation builds up inside Dryer Vents when the Hot Moist are becomes trapped and condenses back into liquid water.

This Liquid water can lead to many issues such as Mold and Bacteria, Water Damage, and if the Water gets into the Rear of the Dryer can even cause Mechanical Failure of an Electrical Fire.

If you notice water in your Dryer Duct you should contact a Professional Immediately.

Not Yet

I have more than 7 years experiance in the Furnace and Air Duct Cleaning Industry, but at this moment our Company does not offer this Service.

In my opinion HVAC Air Duct Cleaning should be only be done with a Truck-mount. Some Companies use 'portable' units or 'small gas-powered' units. In my opinion, these are absolutely inadequate.

When I started my Business I decided I refuse to be one of these guys with a portable unit. Perhaps in the Future we will expand into this Service, but as of now, sorry, no.

Dryer Vent Checklist

No Hidden Charges!

No. All of our Dryer Vent Cleanings include our Full Service, and there are never any Make Believe Fees.

The only time there is any Additional Charges is if we Have to access the Roof/Attic/Crawlspace or if the unit is a Stacked Washer/Dryer unit in a Confined space as we will need to pull it out or Major Repairs Required.

But other than that. No. Definitely no hidden charges.

Kind of Fell into it

A long long time ago, I was like many of my Clients, I didn't even know Duct Cleaning was a Thing.

At the time I was working as a Cook, which I loved, but for a guy just beginning to start a family of his own, the schedule was terrible. Working every evening and weekend, and sleeping during most of the day, it just wasn't a good fit for my life anymore.

I answered a random Craigslist ad, and I was the only one that showed up... And as they say, the Rest is History.

Newer Dryers come equipped with FlowSense Technology. These are generally pretty accurate but can sometimes be quite finicky.

If your FlowSense equppied Dryer is telling you your Dryer Vent is Clogged or Constricted, it's probably right.
