Birmingham Dryer Vent Cleaning Services from people just like you.

"We had moved into a new house and had no idea when the air ducts, chimney or dryer vent had been cleaned. Technicians came out exactly when they " they would be there. One of the gentlemen remembered cleaning the air ducts for the previous owner and let us know when it had been done and that it wasn't necessary to do it again. Really appreciated the honesty and saved us a lot of money by doing so. Turns out the clothes dryer vent was almost completely clogged. The dryer works so much better now that the vent is clean.

"The worker arrived on time. He was very personable and worked quickly. He installed a hard in the crawlspace and drilled an exit hole through" the concrete block. It took about 1.5 hours. I was impressed how he cleaned the area around the dryer, so that things looked nicer when he left than when he arrived. I would recommend the company to anyone who needs vent work done.

Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

If the ducts are venting through a window I'm assuming the duct work is all easily accessible.  Lowe's and Home Depot sell a cleaning kit that uses an electric drill to spin the brush as it goes through the ductwork.  I've found it to work quite well and you can do it yourself.  It may take a few passes the first time to get everything out if it has been a while since it was last cleaned.  Just make sure you get all of the loose lint out after running the brush through from both ends and you're good to go.  Please note that if the line is not hard but rather a flex duct line you can easily puncture a whole in it with this kit and will do better to clean it by hand.

There are varying opinions on the type of cleaning to have done on your air ducts.  My opinion is that it varies based on the type of duct work you have.  If you have solid material (typically metal) ducting you can have use a company that uses a brush to scrape the system clean.  If you have flexible plastic or foil ducts the solvent cleaners are generally a safer bet since the brushes often tear holes in the soft material and/or pull joints loose.  It really depends on what type on ducting you have.  You're ducts will collect all kinds of dirt, skin cells and allergens over time so if you see dicoloration around your vents it is probably time to get them checked and cleaned.

Also, don't stop at the duct work.  Don't forget your annual system check up by a licensed HVAC technician.  They'll make sure your system is running at peak performance, keeping it running efficiently and with as little impact as possible on your electric bill.  You can often save the cost of the annual tune up in the electricity cost saved.  If you have a natural gas system a bi-annual check and cleaning of the HVAC unit may be advisable to save electricity and gas.

Your right, HVAC companies are really not much help at all in regard to getting all the rooms and floors the same temperature, and airflow.  It's not their focus or their expertise. They repair and sell hardware.  I had the same exact problem here in Central Florida.  I had rooms that were to hot in the summer and the same ones were to cold in the colder months.  I have a 2 story 2800 sq ft home with 4 bedrooms.  I did a lot of research, and I tried to fix it myself, but in reality I made it worse.  I finally found a company here in the Central Florida area called AirFlowBalance, LLC.  Their web site is AirFlowBalance.com.  This company is not an HVAC dealer or repairer.  Their sole focus is to balance the airflow and temperature in a home by using a nonevasive proprietary process, with patented devices. Now, when I set my thermometer at 75 degrees, every room is 75 degrees.  I no longer have to bump up or down the temp from room to room.  No more thermostat wars with my family!  Also, I was very supprised at how affordable it was and the whole job was done under 3 hours.  They also have an online estimate page on their web site.  I hope this helps, and I am not sure if they have an office in AZ.
if you have exhausted all of your choices I would call and put a complain in with the BBB then go to the DA and put a complain with them.  Then get a good lawyer and sue them for all you can get.

Dryer Vent Cleaning reviews in Birmingham


What a great job - the cleaning cut my drying time by HALF - it was incredible! And they were SO thorough - I couldn't find a single piece of lint, even though I knew they must have removed a ton. And - great job with my fireplace - the woody smoky smell was gone, and the fireplace looked great.
- Mariah C.

I contacted Mad Hatter to inquire about Dryer Vent Cleaning. The woman that answered the phone was very helpful and told me that they have a flat charge of $100 for vent cleaning. I explained that I was calling about a 3 story condominium and we needed to have both sides of the building cleaned from top to bottom. She said that the charge would be ...More $200, $100 per side. I felt like this was very resonable and I set up an appointment. She told me that the service man would be there within 30 minutes of the appointment time or he would call.
He was right on time!! He did a great job cleaning the dryer vents and explained what could be done to keep the vents from clogging so quickly in the future. He was very professional. The charge was exactly as quoted.
I would call them again!
- Harold N.

Was very pleased with the promptness and knowledge of the repairman. Especially appreciated his honesty about the repair of the washer and vent cleaning. So much so, that I had him replace an ice maker in my refrigerator. That and the charge for the visit make up the $170 cost which though seemingly high is probably not out of reason so I give Price ...More a B grade. But A's for everything else.
