Dryer and Other Vent Cleaning

Dryer Vent Cleaning is often neglected and dryer vent fires are very dangerous. Gas dryers are very susceptible to fires in the venting; electric dryers less so, but should not be neglected.  This is for two reasons.  First, the lint buildup is excessive, and secondly the vent is too close to combustible framing in the house.  The dryer vents are normally in an area that can be on fire for several minutes before they are noticed.  They can get out of hand very quickly.

After assessing the job, we will run a brush through the system and clean out the lint and any bird nests that are present.  You will then be given the option of having us install a new plastic or stainless steel vent cover that will facilitate future cleaning.  We can also replace any piping that is unsuitable or does not meet code.  This should be done when you move into a new home.

Bathroom and kitchen vents normally only need cleaning when birds nest in them.  They will be assessed and cleaned as best as possible and the customer will be given the option of a new plastic or stainless steel bird-proof vent cover.
