Dryer Vent Cleaning reviews in Acton

  • SETTING UP AN APPOINTMENT:First of all setting up an appointment is not easy. You have to do it through their website. Send in a request and then they'll call you to set up an appointment. If you call the number listed in the coupon they do not call back. THE JOB ITSELF: I finally got an appointment for Dec 19. The day before, they called in and set up the time 1-4 pm. At around 3:30 pm they say the're running late by 45 min. By then it was already getting dark. They had trouble getting the lint out of the dryer vent due to the bends. One of their brushes broke in the vent. They tried their best to get it out using another brush, but they could not, and hence I'm left with an unusable dryer, until I get another contractor to figure out what went wrong. I admit that there might be an issue in the vent construction itself, because of which the brush got stuck, since it is an old unit and the problem may be elsewhere. CLEAN UP:The carpet next to the dryer was left dirty, due to a leak in their vacuum. They also left a couple of their tools behind, that I trashed. It was too dark to cleanup the lint outside the building. OVERALL: Bad experience. I had an appointment after for which I was late. WHAT THEY CAN DO BETTER: Streamline the appointment setup process and respond to calls. They can also get a snake camera and inspect a vent before/after doing the job. It does not cost much but will help tremendously in diagnosis, and maximize the effort put into the job. I bought myself one and will inspect the vent to see what went wrong. You get what you pay for. Cheap does not necessarily mean a great deal. Burned my fingers on this one.

  • Matt did a great job. He arrived on time and gave me a reasonable quote. He explained the cleaning process very well and suggested a new rigid vent to replace my flexible vent from the dryer. I declined that service because it just would not work in the confines of my laundry room. He then proceeded to clean the vent with his tools and cleaned up after the job. Overall, a great experience!

  • We moved in about one year ago.  At that time, we installed a new clothes dryer.  About one year later, we noticed that the electric dryer was not working.  The dryer vent probably had not been cleaned by the previous owner.  We called Dryer Vent Wizard.  They cleaned the dryer vent, and now our clothes dryer does an excellent job of drying clothes.

    The service was excellent, but it was, in my opinion, expensive when compared to other household services (electrician, plumber, heating and air conditioning). 

    We found out that the rectangular duct that we have (the one that carries the dryer vent air to the outside) is against current building codes.  That is helpful information.

    The service was comprehensive and covered all aspects of the dryer vent (inspection, cleaning, making us aware of current building code issue).

  • During the inspection, it was determined that the flexible venting should be replaced with solid, for better safety and efficiency.  It required that the dryer be moved out further from the wall to accommodate this change, but it was manageable in the space of our small laundry room. This did not add to the cost of the service and as I had been concerned about the plastic venting was very pleased with the results and the service.

  • I had scheduled for Friday 11:00 - 2:00pm and worked from home. They did not show up at 11:00. When i spoke to them they said that they will call me before they arrive. They finally said that they could not make it and rescheduled for the next day, Saturday. Once they were here they did a good job.

  • We purchased an Angie's List deal for air duct and dryer vent cleaning. We had it done when we purchased our house ~3 years ago and thought we should do it again because we have a dog and also I have a lot of allergies.
    The guys showed up on time and were very friendly. They spent a short time in the basement before informing me that my air ducts and filter were very clean and I really only needed to have them cleaned every 10 yrs or so. They did clean the dryer vent before they left.
    So, our fault for thinking our air ducts needed it but the guys were great and maybe in 10 years, we'll have them back.

  • We are extremely satisfied with the response and work done by Dryer Vent
    Wizard.  We were worried that we needed a whole new dryer and vents,
    but with the thorough cleaning - our system works like new!

  • We recently moved into the house and noticed the dryer exhaust venting was dented and had cracks in it. It also vented very close to the ground outside (about 2" max from the ground to the bottom of the vent cover) and had a vent cover directing the airflow down to the ground (almost a 90 degree angle). I tried to connect our dryer to the exhaust vent and realized the materials the exhaust vent was made of was flimsy and kept cracking open. I wanted to find a long term solution so I wouldn't have to deal with the dryer for a long long time.
    I was hoping I could find a company that specializes in dryer venting, as I didn't think an HVAC contractor would want to come out to repair/ replace a dryer vent, and luckily I found Dryer Vent Wizard in Westford MA. I read the Angies list reviews and they seemed to be very good and any disputes the owner would respond to, which showed me he cared about his customers and the company reputation.
    I called to schedule the appointment and was glad to hear that they would be out the next day to give me an estimate and, if I gave the go ahead, complete the work the same day. I don't normally request quotes from companies that charge for estimates but the company was highly rated and based on the reviews a very professional company, and the reviews gave a rough ballpark of what the job would cost me.
    The technician called when he was 30 minutes away to let me know when he would arrive. When on site he inspected the job and provided me with a detailed quote. And he was ready to start with my OK.
    He tested the dryers venting performance first to see the current baseline, then proceeded to remove the current flexible exhaust (about 10-15'), installed new rigid exhaust connected in 2' sections from the dryer to the exterior, and placed a louvered vent cover on the outside to prevent the exhaust from being forced into the ground, this way it flows much easier. All the exhaust connection points were sealed, and the exterior cover was siliconed around the outer edge, which made me happy. After the install was complete, he hooked my dryer backup and ran a new test to ensure better dryer performance, which the results showed. Although, I only really cared about replacing the exhaust, it is good to know it made a difference, performance wise.
    Overall it was a job well done. I like things done right, and it was done how I would have done it.
    When I started down this path to replace the exhaust vent, I didn't think it would cost as much as it did, but I knew what it would cost after reading the reviews, and I knew it would be done right.
    If you need a vent repaired or installed, I would recommend Dryer Vent Wizard.

  • Left a message requesting service. Paul, the owner, returned my call the next day. Due to complications with timing, I was hard to reach and he was diligent in following-up with me. Over the phone, he explained the service he is able to provide and the approach he takes. Based on my knowledge of the numbers of supply and returns, he provided a quote to me. He was able to schedule me two days later as he had received a cancelation.

    On the day of the appointment he arrived very promptly. Did a walk-through of the house with me, and then he and his son-in-law proceeded with the job. Periodically, he would share a piece of information with me, or a picture of a particular duct. 

    They were very thorough, extremely tidy, and very professional.

  • Clothes dryer has recently been taking very long to dry anything. Called Bright Appliance and they called back right away and could come within two days. Showed up as promised, found out it was not the dryer but the duct venting the dryer that was clogged with lint. Old flexible plastic vent now out of code so he replaced it with aluminum venting. Done within an hour and dryer working fine now.
