Cleaning Details

Each year clogged dryer vents cause thousands of preventable fires as covered in the news.  This problem though is very preventable by having your dryer vent regularly inspected and/or cleaned.

The process regularly takes anywhere from 30 minutes for simpler runs to 1 hour on more complex runs and allows for a proper flow once cleaned.

During our cleaning we also will suggest or perform any needed repairs to your dryer vent exhaust run.  Often the flaps break on the outside from UV rays or the heat tape falls apart or screws might be missing.  Whatever the case may be, we often repair these free of additional charge and if we can't offer that we'll give you an estimate for repair.
Properly built dryer vents will be made out of galvanized rigid pipe or PVC. If the customer's home has full flex hose we may or may not recommend cleaning at all or we may recommend a different cleaning approach instead of our rotary brush as this is capable of damaging the flex hose.


Dryer vents can be very straight forward and also quite complex. As such we do have a range for our cleaning rates:

  • Base Dryer Vent Cleaning: $149-189+tax
    • Shorter, direct runs.
  • Complex Dryer Vent Cleaning: $199+tax
    • Roof access cleanings.
    • Long horizontal runs with multiple turns.
    • Excessive disassembly/reassembly of duct for cleaning.

Vent Hose Failure

We have also found that very often the corrugated tubes are the first area to burn through.  The picture shown above is an example of a fire hazard situation.  You can see the scorching on the wall from the hose blow-by.  Thankfully in this case we were able to catch it in time and recommend a repair to the customer before the situation worsened.
