Dryer Vent Cleaning
Is it time for your dryer to be inspected and cleaned?
Much like your air ducts, you can not see what is inside your dryer and vent. We use special video inspection equipment that allows us to see deep inside your dryer and vent and record all the dirt and debris that is left behind once you’ve completed your laundry and cleared the lint trap. Overtime lint builds up in your dryer and dryer vent which reduces airflow and makes your dryer work harder than it needs to. This can also increase the risk to your dryer overheating causing dryer inefficiencies and in some cases, fires. By cleaning your dryer and dryer vent we can help ensure your home is both safe and energy efficient.
Signs your dryer vent may be clogged
Your home is older than 4 years old or hasn't been inspected regularly.

Takes anywhere from 2-4 cycles to dry one load.
