"The project was completed 30 days ago today, I wanted some time to elapse before posted a review. Throughout the project we both (
&" I) were hit with scheduling issues; however, the provider (
) thoroughly communicated with me about when he would return. I felt that
was professional and I would (I have already) gladly recommend the companies services to family and friends. Initially, he did want to extend additional services; however, we discussed the specifics of what I felt I wanted and needed. All were met to my satisfaction. Thanks, great job.

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.

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 Richmond,


The tech was an hour and a half early, which was great. He called ahead to make sure I would be there. The work was quick and done well. He gave me some pointers on how to keep up with maintaining the system.

showed up on time, promptly got to work, and got the job done in about an hour. The final cost was right in line with the estimate he emailed from the information I gave him. He was courteous and professional.
- Gwendolyn B.

Arrived on-time and finished the service in 15 minutes. Dryer vent was clean as new, and they picked up all traces of lint on the ground from the cleaning. Great job.
- Andrew B.

Christian scheduled the work about two weeks ago. He is busy and for good reason. His work is outstanding. We had an odor coming the the ducts and some discoloration around and within the grates. He thoroughly cleaned and treated everything. The odor and the discoloration are gone.


I have cleaned behind the dryer and had trouble getting it back in place. He first did that for me, then cleaned the vent from the outside. He was thorough and cleaned up the lint when finished. He also solved a mystery re: the purpose of another vent next to that one and pushed that vent cover back in place.

Had a scheduled appointment between 9:30 and 10:00 am. At 11:00 am called them to be told the first appointment ran longer than scheduled. Informed them I had taken the morning off specifically to have my dryer vent cleaned and would need to leave by noon, could they be there in the next 15 minutes to 1/2 hour. Was informed they could not make the appointment. I cancelled it and have found someone else to clean my vent. What happened with calling and telling me they were running late?? Also, had taken vacation specifically for this. Will not call them again.

showed up on time with a pleasant demeanor and got right down to business. My tenants tell me he came equipped and performed his duties professionally. Went up on the roof to remove

. He informed me that the existing dryer vent hose was NOT the correct one! It was made out of plastic and was a fire hazard. Unfortunately he did not have the appropriate aluminum flexible hose but we're taking steps to correct that immediately - a visit to Lowe's should do the trick.
Not only did he do his job, he even gave me a mini-report on the overall status of the tenants in the house, letting me know that they were excellent and kept the house as tidy as a pin! That's good to hear and very welcomed input.
I asked

to put me on his mailing list and contact me next year when its due again.

From the very beginning this transaction went well. I am leaving on a trip and requested consideration of the fact that I needed to get work done before departure. A scheduling rep from the firm called and set up an appointment within 24 hours. A team of three technicians arrived exactly on time. They introduced themselves by first name and then got to it. One thing I especially appreciated was that they gave me some very useful maintenance tips for the future that I did not know about. They were professional and impressed me with their technical knowledge.The entire operation was over within about twenty minutes. Once again, I have discovered that finding the A-list on Angies is the best route to reliable quality service.
