"I was initially put off when I heard a $39.00 non-refundable inspection fee was required because I had no idea how much the actual service might cost, although I was told that the fee would be applied towards the cost of the service. I wanted at least ...more a ballpark idea of how much the service might be. The call center took my information and told me the franchise owner would call me. After speaking with him I decided to go forward even though his price was higher than the two other services I contacted ($89 and $139, not counting tax) His basic service was $151.00 (I paid an additional $78 for the pest proof vent cover and about $12 in sales tax)). I've had my vent cleaned before and those contractors had only cleaned from the exterior--I felt it was time to have the back of the dryer checked also.
I was able to get a next day appointment. Mr.
called me that morning to tell me he would be about 10 minutes late, which he was but I appreciated the call. He was very thorough, explaining every step of the process. My utility room is very small with tight clearances. The vent itself is about 8 feet off the ground and requires a ladder (which he brought) to access. The whole process took about 2 hours. Mr.
measured the airflow before the cleaning and after--the cleaning doubled my dryer's airflow reading. He captured all the lint in his vacuum--prior cleaners had just left it all over the ground--and even wiped the floor behind my dryer to clean the dust there. In fact, he noticed my screen door was slamming hard and adjusted that for me also (no charge) Mr.
was much more thorough than any of the services I have used in the past. It was worth the higher price and I would definitely use his service again. He told me if the pest proof cover failed to work as advertised he would clean the vent for free next time. i appreciate contractors who stand behind their products. "

"Excellent and professional job. Very clean. Spent a lot of time in helping me to find the vent outlet. My only nick picking complaint is that he didn't offer to return the $1 change for my $100 cask payment. Thank you
for a job well done!

Sample Dryer Duct Services Reviews
Cleaned up after themselves and very polite . I would recommend them to anyone. Price, value and quality of work was very good. I can't say enough to express my satisfaction. I believe we were lucky to have avoided a fire.
"Very friendly. Arrived promptly for the appointment. Did the job even though it was raining heavily (required outside work). No complaints and I would use this company again. Does not accept credit cards, cash or check only.
"The vent was in the crawl space and was in an awkward area. He also changed out a portion of the hose which was damaged and could have in the near future create huge problems for us. It was a minimal charge. The gentlemen was very professional and I would recommend him to my family and friends. He was prompt respectful and completely the job exactly ...more as what was stated. Well worth it. Very impressed. I forget what we paid exactly it was a special, but it was well worth every cent. "
"Very prompt with calls and arrival time for my appointment. Professional and courteous. My dryer vent was completely clogged. The work was done on a very timely manner and correctly. I have scheduled an appointment with the same company to do my parents dryer vent. Highly recommend!
. The cleaning was scheduled for the same week, and the technician showed up promptly as promised.
was very professional. Upon reading prior reviews, there was a pattern of needing to do extra work and charging more. I found the same to be true. I didn't ...more understand that cleaning the vent didn't include build up where the vent and dryer connect. Apparently that is considered to be in the dryer and not part of the venting. I was told there was a build up of lint near the heating element and it would cost another $35 to clean that out. Of course, that's the part you're most worried about so I paid the extra to get it done. I'm glad I didn't pay full price of $189 and then pay another $35 on top of that!!
I had this service performed by another company 3 years ago, but they never set foot in the house. This was a much more thorough cleaning.
had to go up on the roof on a rainy day. Some companies might have cancelled. He also took the extra time to go around the shrubs in the yard to make sure he had cleaned up any loose lint. That level of detail impressed me, especially given the nasty weather. "
"Very well. They were ahead of schedule and called to ask if they could move the appointment up an hour - which we did. This is an outside job, and they were very clean and professional. I watched them at work, and was amazed at the amount of lint which came out of the vent. They then cleaned up after themselves, and were on their way in about 30 mintues, end-to-end.
