"I'd like to give higher
for what was a tough assignment, but I was disappointed by the interactions I had with
" and his co-worker. Several years ago, I had hired
to install a dryer vent in my bath, and he did a great job, so I didn't hesitate to contact him again. But when he arrived for this job, he had an angry and unhelpful demeanor that made our interactions tough. I asked him if he would mind taking his shoes off and he said "Yes!" very loudly and stormed off to find some booties. While it's clearly not the first time he's been asked to wear them, he and his colleague seemed very put out about the inconvenience. I have off-white carpeting and ask visitors to take their shoes off to avoid dirt, leaves and other debris getting tracked indoors. No other contractor has ever complained about this request. When I first called
about the job, I asked him if he recommended any types of fans. He said it was my choice and gave me no guidance on how to select a model, size, and brand. But when he arrived and took the old fan out, he lectured me at length about how the fan I chose was the wrong type and was too large for the space. I would have appreciated getting this advice before he arrived. When
and his colleague arrived the second time, his colleague argued with me about wearing the booties, saying it was such a pain since he had to go in and out to get supplies. He said in a very
that he guessed he would look and see if he had any booties, and left the house in a glum mood. When they got started, I could hear them complaining loudly and making fun me of me behind my back, mockingly imitating my voice when I asked them if there was anything they needed to do the job (I had provided an extra ladder, some drop cloths, etc). I'm not sure if they realized I could hear everything they were saying. I didn't appreciate their hostility and rudeness, and it seemed very unprofessional to me. Shortly after the loud complaining, I heard
shouting at his colleague that he'd drilled the hole in the wrong place. I wondered if they had this miscommunication because they were spending so much time complaining instead of focusing on the job. They managed to create an elbow in the vent, and I hope it will function properly despite the misalignment.
charged me $175 and hour, which seems a lot higher than others who posted reviews were charged. On balance, I will say that they arrived on time at both appointments, brought all the equipment they needed, and generally did a good job installing the vent in a cramped setting -- the vent had to be installed in the mere 7" inches below an AC duct, and
's colleague had to climb out a window to get in the atrium to which the bath vents.
's colleague also did a very thorough job cleaning the chimney on the first visit -- not an easy task. I hesitated about writing a critical review, but thought I'd post this for women readers. If you hire
, you might have the man of the house oversee the job. It's just a hunch, but I suspect they might treat a man with more respect.

-Elizabeth R.

"He was scheduled to arrive at 3pm, he showed at 2:55pm. Immediately got to work and was done in about 30 mins. He was very nice, professional and knowledgeable" about dryers and cleaning them, He left me a reminder sticker and taught me how to know when it was time to have the dryer cleaned again. I am a very picky consumer, but was very happy with
's Service. I would definitely use this company again.

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.

Dryer Vent Cleaning, Plumbing, Water Heaters

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.

Dryer Vent Cleaning reviews in Chesapeake


I would highly recommend
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
for any dryer venting issue. I had another service provider clean the dryer venting system in a rental house in Ladera Ranch. The tenants still had problems with the new dryer shutting off.
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
came out 3 times to repair the dryer. I had the venting through the roof checked and everything looked OK. I researched Angie's List and found the good comments on
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
and in particular on
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
the owner. After talking to him about possible problems & solutions, I asked him to come out personally and diagnose the issue. He came and found a difficult 90 degree bend and was able to clean out the obstruction. The tenants and myself are very relieved that everything works perfectly now. Great knowledge & service with reasonable pricing. Use this company. I will for any future cleaning & servicing.
- Janet J.

One call brought
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
within 1/2 hour - he happened to be completing a job in the neighborhood (perfect timing!) and came right over. Dryer had taken 2+ cycles to do a load of wash - a sure sign that either the vent is clogged or thermometer needs replacing. I opted to check out the vent first and am very glad I did. He showed me the reading before and after his work and it made a huge difference. He came prepared, with the right equipment to clean out the vent from both ends, which included climbing to the roof of my 2 story building. I highly recommend DVS and will have him back whenever needed.

At no extra cost, he checked the heat temp, since he also does dryer repair, (for a flat rate plus parts). Should I ever need that service, I'm glad to have found him.
- Margaret F.

The tech was very polite and took the time to vacuum out the vent and made sure as to not track a mess from outside during his work. Did a very thorough job. The cost was relatively inexpensive compared to other providers.
- Samiel F.

When you issued the confirmation, no phone number or email contact for the vendor was provided, so, silly me, I wrote a note; SEE Below. So, when i returned to the area and presumed it had been done (he had contacted and coordinated one of those dates with my son) I receive a note from Angies that it's NOT done.

for and finally guess at a couple phone numbers, call and get this BS answer:
We don't ever call or email; we'd have to hire another person to do that. The buyer has to contact us. (
Chesapeake Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
, HOW?) and no, of course, I can't schedule before it expires.
First off, Angie, why would you confirm a purchase without contact information ? that's on you. Secondly, I hope you will pull these guys from any possible promotions. (Ironically, he spent more time talking to me about how to get a refund with you than it woud have taken him to call when asked!)

I am in Orange County. My son is in Goodyear and cares for the home.

They could have done a better job on my dryer. He also made kind of a mess but I called them back. They did come back and he cleaned up. I wanted them to clean the lint trap area because some of it got trapped in there underneath the lint trap. He could have not made a mess or cleaned it up before he left instead of having me to contact them again and have them come back. The price was a little high. It was a special though. His punctuality was good. He broke a little

Claus figurine I had. They did refund me for that. Keep tabs on them and see that they're doing a good job and that they're cleaning up after themselves.
- Jenny S.

They scheduled two appointments for me, one of them 2 Saturdays ago and the other the following Saturday. For the first one, they called to cancel after they time they were supposed to be there. This last Saturday, I took time off again and was waiting for them to show up. I called them after they did not show again and they told me that they called and cancelled on Thursday, which they did not.

was in time (early, actually), informative and seems to have done a thorough job. We will them for future cleanings. Abit pricey
- Whitney G.

They showed up on time, changed to indoor shoes and did a good job cleaning the air ducts. They used a rotary brush and force air to do a good cleaning. Also cleaned the dryer vent and cleaned up the lint.
