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.

Dryer Vent Cleaning reviews in Pittsburgh,


It was outstanding they showed onetime which is important to me. They sat down explained everything they would do. They discuss additional services put no pressure to get them. They gave me an exact price before they started. They were very cognizant to make sure they cleaned up when finished. I will defiantly use them again and highly recommend them.
- Dessie N.

It was easy to schedule an appointment for a convenient day and time.
I was given a time frame of between 1-2 and called at around 1:20 and was told that they would be there in 15 minutes- and they were! They got to work right away and located quickly the exit vent up on the roof. I had not cleaned my dryer vent in a long time, so they removed a lot of lint. He even showed my husband how much had accumulated under the dryer, near the electrical heating element, and explained that it really was a potential fire hazard. Glad we got this done and by such a professional team! It took them about 45-60 minutes to complete the job. I will call them again and would be happy to recommend them to others. Thanks guys!
- Susan M.

The only problem I had was the provider did not call me back by the date indicated in the offer. I had to contact the provider to obtain an appoinment. Provider arrived on time for appointment and did a satisfactory job in cleaning the dryer vent duct. Our duct is from one side of the house to the other so it is probably 50 to 60 feet long. Provider had to cut an access hold into the duct where there was a 90 degree angle to enable the equipment to have access to the entire duct. The hole was sealed with a rubber plug and taped over with aluminum tape. Provider said this met the building code requirement. The joints in my duct work had originally been sealed with duct tape which the provider said was inadequate. He explained the duct tape dries out due to heat and separates, which mine had done in places. He resealed all the joints with aluminum tape at no extra cost. The provider cleaned up lint where necessary. I was well satisfied with the work and recommended the provider to other condominiums owners in my development.

It really needed cleaning and I could see more efficient dryer time after the service because it took less time to dry the clothes. I have a 2 story house so I was told because of how the venting system is configured it cost "more" money. I really didn't shop around enough I guess. I found out when I referred someone else I got a referral credit. Still I would've preferred paying less for my own service in the first place. Not having any experience with

cleaning, I am afraid I paid too much and next time would look for the lowest possible price and the best reviews. There was also an "issue" with getting my credit check in a timely fashion and I had to follow up several times. At least the franchise owner was "accessible".
- Kelley H.

Excellent. On time with all the necessary equipment. Very neat, knowledgeable, and accomplished the task quickly. Staff well trained and customer oriented.
- Ellie B.

First off, I didn't even know where the lint from our dryer went...so I asked around, and discovered it was supposed to go out a hole in the roof. For almost a YEAR, my clothes hadn't been drying very well. I thought our 10 year old dryer needed replacement, but a friend suggested I get the lint trip checked out. (I HAVE A LINT TRAP? WHO KNEW?) Do I found

here, on Angies list, and gave him a call at 8:30 at night. (I was expecting a voice machine, but
Pittsburgh, Dryer Duct Services Provider Name Locked
answered!) He came out the very next morning, got a ladder, and cleaned 15 years of fuzzy lint. This WASN'T an easy job, as our roof was VERY steep, but he managed beautifully, and didn't even charge extra for all the difficulty he incurred. (We tipped him, we were so happy) It's like I have a new dryer. YAY for this nice professional man!!!!!!! HIGHEST praise for his good work, great prices, and tackling a job that could have been very dangerous, with a smile and wonderful attitude.

The service went very well. I paid an additional fee for them to clean the dryer vent. Two technicians came out and completed the work in a couple hours. They were very professional and did a good job. I had issues with scheduling only because of weather.
- Brett C.

Very clear communication. Prompt and extremely courteous and polite.

, the technician, accessed the situation and outlined the work. Once approved, he quickly and professional performed the repairs. Afterward, he explained some preventative maintenance suggestions. Great service performed by a professional. I would recommend and use the service again.
