DRYER VENT FAQS

Why do I need my dryer vent cleaned?2022-08-18T16:11:21+00:00
  • Because we need the money, and you need your dryer vent cleaned.

  • It increases dryer efficiency (fancy way of saying that your clothing will dry faster.)

  • It will save you money – faster dryer = shorter drying time = less money spent.

  • It will prolong the life of your dryer.

  • Clogged dryer vents are one of the top causes of fires in the United States….yes, really.

How often do I need the service?2022-03-07T00:02:53+00:00
  • Both the National Fire Association and most dryer manufacturers recommend that dryer vents be cleaned at least once a year, assuming normal usage (Hint – normal usage is five loads a week, but let’s be honest, we all know you do more.)

How do I know if my dryer needs service?2022-03-07T00:06:23+00:00
  • If you (well, actually your dryer) experience any of the following (if you experience any of these please seek medical attention immediately):

  • Drying your clothes takes longer than  usual.

  • There is a burning smell coming from the dryer, when it’s on.

  • You notice lint stuck to the dryer or the wall next to the dryer.

  • Your laundry room or dryer area is excessively  warm and or moist.

  • Your vent flap  outside does not open and close properly (that’s the little thingy outside that hot air comes out of and flaps up and down.)

  • If there is a bird’s nest on the outside of your dryer vent exhaust (hint – you probably should have called us a while ago.)

Can I do the cleaning myself?2022-03-07T00:06:34+00:00
  • Well, yeah, if you’re handy and have a compressor, a strong vacuum, an anemometer and a few other nifty tools, and have an understanding of basic building codes in your state, understand when and where to use flex vs. rigid venting, what kind of guard and vent caps are proven to work, if you should use tape or screws (hint, using screws in NY state is illegal – that one is on the house) then yes, you can. Chances are though if you read that entire run-on sentence, you either don’t have those or you don’t want to spend your time on something you don’t specialize in. The old “What can go wrong?” adage comes to mind.

What should I expect from a professional dryer vent cleaning company?2022-03-07T00:07:51+00:00
  • To leave your dryer drying better than before.

  • To leave your dryer and laundry room (within reason) looking better than before.

  • To be respectful of your property and home (mud on your carpet is a big no no.)

  • To not nickel and dime you over every little thing.

  • To not do a bait and switch (well I should really charge you $4,699.74 BUUUT since I really like you guys so much I will do it for $450…and if you pay cash, $250)

I have lint on my dryer or around my dryer area. Is that ok?2022-03-07T00:13:09+00:00
