" cleaned my dryer vent, which had not been cleaned in several years. He was prompt, professional, and informative. He was able to clean" the vent without dismantling it. It went quickly, and without any mess. The process was very efficient. He informed me that the vents were pretty clogged and suggested I check in with him for a cleaning in two years. Great transaction.


"Excellent. My vent is clean and dryer works quickly. The dryer would not dry before for 90 minutes or more. Now it works in 30 minutes. I have not seen a reduction in gas terms yet.

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


During the initial consult, reviewed all of our potential options. At that time we were not ready to make a decision and he gave us some time to review our options and determine how we wanted to move forward. We paid for his initial visit and called him back within one week to return and replace entire vent. ...More was very flexible in scheduling the visit with our work schedules and arrived promptly on a Saturday morning. Upon his return, we realized that our initial plan was not an option due to the structure of our home. He was quick to make additional recommendation and provide the best solution for our house. After hours of trial and error, we were able to settle on a solution that would work. At that time, he gave us a price quote and the work was completed promptly. He was very professional and we appreciated his attention to detail and the updates he provided us along the way. In the end, we were presented with a solution that wasn't ideal but we knew that had tried every solution possible for our desired outcome. He was relentless and never gave up trying to make us happy. I would highly recommend 's services---he is easy to work with, personable and professional. It is hard to come across trustworthy people and I am happy we were able to find and this company. Our dryer is working better than ever and we have them to thank for that!
- Camden P.

He fixed our dryer house because it was to long, and fixed it to where it worked more efficiently. Also advised that the dryer vent on top of the roof was not working properly. We have a problem with the cap, it was not properly installed, and the technician corrected that.
- Arlene R.

The company and men were very professional. Explained what they were going to do. Arrived promptly, Very neat and clean. Could not believe the stuff that was in the duct work, (camera showed before and after) as the noise was something else. But the proof was that we had heat/air finally coming out of a that had previously ...More so little air that you did not feel it. Well satisfied with work done.
- Judith S.

immediately contacted me via email through Angie's List and we set a date. He was on time and set to work until the job was done. He was very pleasant and helpful about some other issues he happened to notice in the house. In all, a very pleasant and hassle-free experience.
- Susan K.

Provider was amazing. Came on time, and within minutes had 2 plans of action mapped out. We agreed on pursuing more inexpensive short-term option now and will revisit longer-term fix in the next few weeks.
I want to be clear: Provider applied no pressure to choose either option. He simply let us know what was going on so we could get to ...More some reasonable course of action.
Provider was smart and focused. He and his assistant pointed out areas where we are vulnerable to more than just a dryer problem. The provider was thinking about how we can take care of the house, not just how to fix the dryer vent.
Provider is a pleasure to deal with. Would absolutely do business with these guys again and probably will.
Provider spent several hours here, dealing with cramped conditions in the work area. I did not hear one complaint. Instead, he remained cheerful and amiable.
Cost was absolutely in range and reasonable. One more GREAT benefit: They do most of their work on weekends.

- michael R.

They did a great job. They showed up on time, cleaned their mess afterward and did everything they promised. They were knowledgeable and provided good information on the care of the unit.
- Tatiana P.

Great. I mentioned we were early risers and if he could fit us in early am would be fine. He shared that he was slammed with seasonal people but could come early 6:30am. I didn't really think this would happen but by god he was at our door at 6:30 am and did a superb job. Note, we had never had this done before so many years of build up, he was ...More on the roof, pulled out what could have been a serious combustible material. Yuck. Left dryer area lint free!

combustable material. This guy is the real deal a professional!
- Libby C.

is the most amazing repair person we've ever encountered. He sets the bar for any other service person. He's reliable, reasonable, and knowledgeable. He also inadvertanly taught me how to use my cell phone camera to send him a picture of the problem, so he knew what was wrong with the vent, as it was hard to explain ...More over the phone. He "fit us into" his busy schedule, and when he was going to be a bit late, he contacted us along his route, so we wouldn't worry that he wouldn't make it. IF EVERY REPAIR PERSON WAS AS DILEGENT IT WOULD BE A BETTER WORLD. Thank you, !
