Many of us do not notice clogged dryer vents until it is too late or when we see the outcome on the unfortunate news of those homes that burned as result of blocked dryer vents.
A: Most residential dryer vents can be cleaned within an hour. Excessive lint buildup and the other obstructions may take longer to clean.
Our technicians are experienced and equipped to patch up any sheet rock that we have to remove and repaint if required or we can leave it for you in a condition to be repainted. We are also equipped to install outside vents through concrete foundations, outside walls and roofs. These, of course, are sealed water tight.
A: One of the most important functions of a dryer is removing the moisture that is created during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity and is normally released to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. Poor drying can result if the air is not removed. This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Any moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is a sign of poor venting which should be checked.
A: Yes. Our expert technicians use professional metal venting for our dryer vent installation work whenever possible. As part of installing a new vent we sometimes have to open walls.
