Raleigh Dryer Vent Cleaning Services from people just like you.

"Upon inspection the vent was not up to code, and was thoroughly clogged. The tech was willing to clean, but said that since it was PVC, that it would clog up again" much sooner than later. He tested the airflow before cleaning. It was moving 200cfm. He told me it should be moving closer to 1000-1200 cfm. He recommended a "proper" fix of gutting the whole vent plumbing, and replacing with aluminium ducting. After seeing the inside of the PVC duct and how clogged it was, and the fact that the dryer was really struggling to get the clothes dry, I opted to replace with aluminium. The $59 cleaning fee was applied to the repair job. It took him a couple of hours. Afterwards, he retested the flow. It's blowing 1400 cfm!! Dryer runs much shorter cycles now!! Not to mention I no longer have a potential fire hazard in the laundry room. Yeah it was more than I wanted to spend, but the peace of mind was worth the price!!

"The technician, , called prior to arrival. He cleaned the area around the dryer. He then cleaned the vent from both directions. " replaced the vent from the dryer to the wall. The entire process didn't take very long. In addition, he checked the smoke detectors. A professional job, well done, at a reasonable price. I would use again.

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.

Just purchased a town home and noticed lint underneath the outside dryer vent. discovered the vent was packed with lint as well as The entry to the dryer. They worked very hard for an hour and cleaned it all and even provided a new larger ring for the connection to the wall. Very professional and nice. I'm definitely ...More using them again this fall to clean my heating ducts.

After some initial confusion with communication, we got everything scheduled. I was out of town but my wife raved about the quality of the service and the professionalism of the technician. Would definites use again and would highly recommend to anyone needing dryer vents clean. Such an easy thing to ignore but such an important thing to have done.

Clean, punctual, felt evaluation and recommendations were honest, safety recommendations were offered but not pressured.
Identified that my ventless gas logs were not performing well and were a CO safety hazard to my family. Glad that I had them out.
Thanks,

Overall it was great. They called prior to the appointment to let us know they were running ahead of schedule and my husband was able to meet them at our home. There was an additional fee due to our vent exiting the roof, but they were upfront about that not only in the listing of the deal but prior to performing the work.
After cleaning the ...More dryer vent they did a safety inspection of our home. My husband was very impressed with this and learned several new things. He did not feel pressured to buy any additional products, but we are considering upgrading our smoke detectors and increasing the number of them in our home as a result. They summarized their findings on a easy to understand checklist so that we can take our time to decide what suggestions to implement.

I could have gone out and purchased my own smoke alarms and installed but felt the reasonable cost of $45 each was worth it.
They are always so knowledgeable and courteous. I will continue to use their service yearly

charged a fair price for the amount of work he did and the amount of dryer and vent parts he had to purchase/fabricate. He was thoroughly professional and had a positive upbeat attitude at all times. These were tough jobs but he got the job done. I can not imagine how his service could have been any better.

Smell in clothes dryer. I had allergic symptoms for 2 months and blamed a newly adopted cat. Found new home for cat, deep cleaned the house, then left town for a few days. Five days after returning, on a Sunday evening, I opened the laundry closet door, and released severe dead animal smell that triggered instant allergic symptoms. I have transplanted ...More corneas in both eyes, so this was a serious problem. Monday morning I searched Angie's list for help. I found appliance repairmen, who could come 3 days later but "didn't do vents." They referred me to Wizzard ( ), who scheduled me at the end of his workday same day, because he thought IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO". He worked two hours to find the problem, then installed a new vent, reassembled everything, and problem solved with me about how to get the smell out of my dryer. He called the next day to see if I got the smell out. My only other alternative was a new dryer (several days later). I consider this a "random good " on his part, something very hard to find today.

He called about 20 minutes before the appointment time to let me know he was on his way. He was very professional and personable. He explained how the fire extinguisher worked and told me to tap it on the bottom each month so the powder wouldn't compact. He worked quickly and was great with my dog who wanted to help.
