Cleaning Dryer Vents

A clogged dryer vent not only means your appliance isn't operating at its peak efficiency, it also poses a safety risk in the form of potential fires. Learn more about how to spot a clogged dryer vent, how to clean a dryer vent yourself and practical advice for hiring a dryer vent-cleaning service.

Have you cleaned your dryer vent lately? Cleaning pros say clogged dryer vents cause thousands of house fire each year. See how to protect your home.

New trends in home construction pace the clothes dryer and washing machine in second-floor hallways, bedrooms and bathrooms, which require longer dryer vents to reach an exterior wall for proper ventilation.

If there are home maintenance items you’ve put off, the new year is a great time to get back on track. Regular maintenance will keep your house in tiptop shape and help prevent costly breakdowns down the road – putting more money in your pocket. To start, Angie gives you three places to check.

Angie's Answers

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.

Terrible.
Palo Alto Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
replaced older dryer venting with newer venting to support my new dryer. Problem is that he did not replace all of the venting; he actually used some of the old (out of code) plastic vents instead of replacing with new aluminum. So $600 later, my dryer vent is still a fire hazard. I tried to reach

Mladonicky called 30 minutes prior to his scheduled arrival time at our residence, and he arrived right on time. We explained our situation, and he confirmed that it was something he could take care of. He spent some time analyzing what we had and what he needed to do, then worked up a detailed estimate, indicating that, if desired, he could take care of it right away, and that only a small part of the existing wall and ceiling would have to be removed. Given the amount of time and materials necessary to do the work, the estimate was quite reasonable, and my wife and I agreed

could have ignored that (we certainly would not have known), but instead he immediately told us what happened, showed us the damaged plumbing piece, then went to a nearby hardware store, procured a new part, and installed it, at no charge to us. The total time

The owner, Ed
Palo Alto Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
performed the service. He was punctual and recalled our telephone conversation in which I expressed concern that past attempts to keep dryer hose attached to wall bib/duct had been troublesome and often resulted in hot air leaks. Ed thoroughly cleaned the duct from the wall to the outside of the house and completed the job quickly and cleanly. Best of all, Ed was able to pull more of the wall bib to lengthen the extension which then allowed for a much more secure connection ensuring that we'd avoid the hot air leaks that had previously plagued us. As a bonus, Ed showed us how we might avoid water from from outside of the house from entering our home through the dryer vent in the even of severe

WOW! what great service! I was given an appointment window, then called THAT morning to let me know the tech was on the way. He showed up in time, assessed the situation, told me the best way to handle the job (without piling on a bunch of unneeded items and labor), then he got right to work. He was fun, professional, and did the job right! I am so very impressed with Apex. You will have all my business from this day forward! Thank you so much!
