Locust Grove Dryer Vent Cleaning Services from people just like you.

was at it a while due to how clogged our stacks were; being new to the condo board, we didn't know how long ago the stacks had been" cleaned, but he informed us not in some time. He went to the roof to sweep all the stacks downward, then went under the building where all the cleanouts are and worked removing all the lint. He then went with me to the owner's unit who had trouble with her dryer over heating to test the airflow and run the machine for a while. All seemed to function properly and there was good airflow.
also came to our building last week to assess the building to give us a quote for service. I would highly recommend he and his company
for all his professionalism and timeliness.

responded quickly to my initial email contact. I called him yesterday evening to set up an appointment, and he was here today at exactly" the time promised. He went straight to work, with lots of energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism. He cleaned out my dryer vent from top to bottom and totally cleaned out my dryer as well. I haven't reconnected yet to test out the drying speed because our dryer has to have repairs done (tomorrow--different provider). We will definitely call
again next year!

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 Locust Grove


Mr. Lews arrived exactly on time. He explained what he would be doing and proceeded to clean our clogged dryer vent, event getting on the roof to clean the exhaust. He was very professional and friendly. He even told us that our 16 year old roof looked in very good shape. Once he completed the work, he went over what he did and asked if there were any questions or comments we had for him. It was very important to him that we were satisfied with his work. Best of all, my dryer now works the way it was supposed to!
- Joy J.

This guy is great! I called him yesterday afternoon. He was booked through today; had to be out of town tomorrow (Sat.) but offered to come on Sunday morning. How cool is that?
This morning he called to say he had a cancellation and asked if I would like him to come at 2:30. He and his son arrived with lots of equipment, a great deal of knowledge and a ton of friendly professionalism. They did a great job explaining everything, cleaning it all out and then reattached the dryer with a new ring. He said some air was escaping because of poor installation.
The dryer is now humming along and feels cool again to the touch. I highly recommend

They were fabulous. They even found a problem with the venting with our dryer. Thanks to their help we stopped a fire hazard. We did not know when we bought the house that the dryer vent was just venting into our foundation wall. My husband was able to fix the problem after

discovered they could not find the exit vent to our dryer.

- Heather H.

Came from a long distance away willing to come and take care of the issue and was real professional. I was appreciatting of his honesty and showed me better options and suggestions for the work rather than just a cleaning service. I really appreciate that he didn't take advantage of me and told me the facts and didn't do a service where he knew it would have needed to be replaced.

He walked me through step by step and i really appreciated this time and the effort to make sure I understood everything.

I would recommend this company to anybody in the area and know you wouldn't be disappointed with the service.
- Latricia M.

Dwaine responded to my inquiry the same day and schedule the service call on his first available day in my area. I personally have never had my dryer vent cleaned so I did not know what to expect. He arrived on time and ready to work. He was very patient with me and answered all my questions, as he worked. I can tell the air flow is much improved and can only assume my dryer will work more effiecently.

service-excellent just like the first time! Well worth the peace of mind.
- Darlene C.

It went very well ! Cost more than expected but worth every penny! He was prompt, courteous and worked very hard for his money. I had purchased a deal on Angie's List for $129.00. Because it had been several years since I had my
Locust Grove Dryer Vent Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
cleaned, it was in very bad shape. My vent was not working at all, inside of dryer including motor was packed with lint. I also had a vent pipe behind the dryer that was too flexible and was not straight. It ended up costing me $79.00 for new pipe and $39.00 to clean out the inside of dryer in addition to the $129.00. My vent pipe from dryer to outside of house is extremely long. But like I said it was worth every penny. My dryer works so much better now and I am not as concerned about a possible lint fire. I would highly recommend this company and I will call them next time.
- Rich & Pat J.

Service on exact time of appt. 9:00am.
Pleasant personality. Cleaned up all dust/dirt upon job completion. Wore protective shoe covers.
Gave advice to wash dryer filter with hot soapy water monthly to remove
residue from dryer sheets.
Would hire again annually. Very pleased.
