If you just moved into a home that was previously owned and/or you’re not sure when the last time your dryer vent was cleaned. We recommend getting your dryer vent inspected as soon as possible. During inspection, we look for a variety of hazards such as screws, duct tape or non-code compliant metal foil tape being used as connector tape. We also measure the length of your dryer duct, taking into consideration the type of material being used, the location of the duct, the location and type of exterior vent cover and more.
We use an effective cleaning process that thoroughly cleans every inch of your dryer vent. We use professional grade cleaning tools and processes that will have your dryer vent as good as new in no time! We start by removing/unhooking your dryer and removing the lint from your flex hose and dryer outlet. We then clean the entire length of your dryer duct with a rotary brush that removes the hazardous lint and debris. Next we clean up and hook up your dryer and last but not least we turn your dryer on and check the airflow to insure it is in proper working condition. We recommend getting your dryer vent thoroughly cleaned at least once a year to decrease the risk of a fire and to save money on your energy bill.
Having a properly installed exterior vent cover is important. Your dryer vent needs proper protection from various objects and animals that can be a potential clogging hazard. We install the highest quality exterior vent covers that protect your vent from numerous clogging hazards such as leaves, birds and other debris. From bird protectors, louvered vent covers, hooded vent covers, metal pest proof vent covers and more, we’ve got you covered.
Booster fans are useful if you have vents that are too long or have too many bends. If you have a dryer vent that is over the code compliance limit (25-35ft total depending on the type of dryer you have) there is a good chance you will have a greater build up of lint in your vent. A durable booster fan will facilitate proper airflow throughout the vent preventing lint from building up and causing airflow blockages over time.
We replace hazardous dryer ducts (plastic, aluminum, semi-rigid, PVC pipe etc…) with code compliant galvanized steel hard pipe to insure a safe and efficient dryer ventilation system. In addition, if you have a dryer duct that is too long or improperly ejects lint inside the house, garage, attic, crawlspace etc. this is non code compliant and can be a huge fire hazard. We can help by rerouting your dryer vent to a safe exterior location whether it is. Whether we need to reroute your vent through the roof or through a wood, vinyl or brick wall we have the equipment and expertise to get it done!
Over time, dryer vents develop wear and tear, if your dryer vent is disconnected or has non code compliant material (duct tape, plastic, aluminum flex hose etc) then we recommend getting it repaired. We repair problematic dryer vents by fixing joints, ducts and hangars. We ensure all repairs will meet current codes.
Sometimes nature run’s its course and as a result you end up with a bird’s nest clogging your dryer vent. No problem! We know just how to safely remove any birds and their nest with no hurt or harm done to the lovely little creatures.
