About Us

  • on Angie's List for 7 years
Why you should have your dryer vent professionally cleaned and inspected. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there will be 16,000 dryer fires this year. These fires amount to over $100,000,000 in property damage annually. Routine maintenance and cleaning helps to reduce these incidents as well as reduce increased utility costs, and also extends the life of your appliances. Lint build-up in dryer vents is an extreme fire hazard. It also causes the dryer to work harder resulting in higher operating costs and increased repair bills. Many local fire prevention ordinances and insurance companies are now mandating that dryer vents in condominium complexes, town houses, and other facilities be cleaned annually, and repaired if necessary, to prevent any risk of fire. This, in many cases, includes the replacement of all white vinyl flexible venting hose. This type of venting should be replaced with flexible, all metal venting materials. How we professionally clean the dryer vent system Many people claim to professionally clean dryer vent systems. While there are many systems out there beware of anyone who claims to professionally clean dryer vent systems with a leaf blower! While this may get rid of some of the loose lint, without the use of a rotary brush, the majority of the lint built up will remain stuck to the inside of the duct work and you will have wasted your hard earned money. Our company uses the RoVac System which is the most advanced equipment of its type. Using a combination of suction from a high powered vacuum and rotating brushes, dangerous lint is removed safely and effectively, both in the venting system and in the dryer itself. Once the cleaning is completed, the system is tested for proper air flow. The RoVac system also contains the specialty tools needed to remove blockages such as birds nests and can be used to pinpoint the location of problems within a wall or ceiling.
