"They were very responsive and showed up within the timeframe given. Completed the job quickly and did not leave a mess. I plan on using them for cleaning the my" home vents. Pleasant and professional group. The owner was very informative and did not mind me asking questions.

"Great job. Seemed to be thorough. Polite technician (
). The only thing I could offer as improvement is that when I called for details on" how the work would be performed, I was told all the work would be done from the outside via the air exhaust vent. Most of the work is done that way; however, the technician does come inside as well to finish with a cleaning of the lint catcher and ducting inside the dryer itself. Overall, great experience.

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.

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.

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.

the answers in this on this page are all correct but you are using a bandaide to to cure the infection have a trust hvac tech open your system to see where the dust is coming from you more than likely have an impacted coil that need to acid wash to bring it back to oringinal anything left from the fire is still inbeded in that coil. just remember after that job to keep your filters clean change once a month in the summer and every two months in the winter.

The service was fine. He performed the service that I asked him to do and he did alright but nothing spectacular. I was not expecting the additional cost for the service as he said there were other things stuck there and he had to go higher than normal into the pipe.

The serviceman carefully moved our dryer so he could get to the line and he worked neat and efficiently. I would definitely recommend his company to my neighbors. After he left I was amazed at how fast my dryer dried a load of clothes.

cleared it and then came back when I had another problem with the same tubing involved in the first clogging. They fixed the reconnection of the tubing and did not charge me. Best Company for dryer clogs and I am calling them back to complete a full house vent cleaning. Very satisfied with their work, price of service and expertise.

professional/ friendly, accommodating in that they turned a vent 180 degrees for me outside the original scope (i did not have to get on a ladder lol). they offered up an additional $1000.00 worth of work not in contract etc, to which i flat out told them all i wanted was the original contract only but they kept persisting/insisting on the additional $1000.00 work. i finally had to get absolutely rude and get it across that all that was going to be done that day was the original work/contract. at that time, they packed up and left, not inspecting/cleaning the other 8 vents etc. i will not be hiring this company again, thx.

Many clothes dryers are replaced annually because users fail to keep the dryer vent ducts clean, especially the roof cap if you have one. This can cause LONGER DRYING TIMES and OVER-WORKED HEATING ELEMENTS. This can cause elements and/or associated relays to default. Dryer repair can be fairly expensive; so people often just buy new ones.....NOT just a dryer, BUT often a matching washer too. They get very little trade in value for their set, so practically give away their washer and dryer - all because they did not keep the dryer vent clean. Then wise appliance resellers repair them and sell them to folks looking to save some money on a pair. OUR dryer vents through a wall duct an extension in the attic that goes to a roof vent. Our roof vent had collected several years of lint build up that could no longer get blown through the louvered slots. This backpressure of heated air seriously reduces the efficiency of your dryer and can create the situation I described. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR! Get your dryer vent duct and roof cap cleaned. If you plan to heed my advice, but don't really know who to call:
Palo Alto Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
, 471-1017. Chase
Palo Alto Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
, one of the most well mannered and thorough young men ever to do work for me. Chase is a local Fireman who purchased a retiring operator's business to supplement his income in support of his wife and 16 month old baby. His price was about the average that I've paid in the past, but he went far beyond my expectations by making sure my roof vent was also thoroughly cleaned. That was a tedious job, since no cleaner before him had been as responsible, as thorough. Twenty one years of lint build up because the louvers are small. The fix? Cut out certain louvers to allow better flow to the outside, then vacuum through the louvers. It was extremely tedious and required him to be on my 8/12 roof for 45 minutes. For all this extra work and a couple of minor repairs in the attic duct, he asked for a measly $25 extra dollars over his normal fee of $125. I had watched his effort and his diligence; so my conscience forced me to pay him $200 and felt good doing it. He showed up on time, worked steadily for two and a half hours, had all the proper equipment to do the job and did what no other service person had done before - he did it right and cleaned up THEIR mess. Well worth a $50 tip to me

was very punctual and was very professional. He was able to work me into an earlier time slot and was so very accommodating. He was very thorough in the inspection of our dryer, our situation and our needs. His work was timely and efficient. The pile of lint that came out of out vent pipe was frightening! He also told us the dangers of the type of hose we had behind the dryer hooking it to the vent in the wall and he sold and installed a much safer one. I called the fire department after he left to verify the information about the hose material and was told that
