Lint build up in dryer discharge


Option 1 - Dryer Vent only 

This option offers "no contact". All work is performed from the exterior.  This is accomplished by using reverse flow compressed air.  We enter the duct through the dryer vent cover mounted on the outside of the home.  A small compressed air hose with a spinning nozzle flows air back toward the vent cover expelling the lint out of the duct.  At the same time the reverse air flow pulls the hose further into the duct until it reaches the dryer.  An air flow test will also be completed (if someone is available to operate the dryer) before and after the cleaning is completed.  This allows us to measure dryer performance.  Upon completion expelled lint is vacuumed up and removed. 

Option 2 - Entire Dryer System

We service the entire dryer vent system as follows*;

An internal video inspection of the dryer ductwork will be conducted before and after


A Dryer Exhaust Duct Performance test will be conducted before cleaning the exhaust and after cleaning to ensure proper air flow.

Gas Dryers- Carbon monoxide and combustible gas detectors are used to check connections at back of dryer and at the gas supply line.
