Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer installation. As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat. This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longer to dry your clothes and can also cause fires in the dryer or the dryer duct. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase. CPSC figures show that in 1997 there were 16,800 dryer fires which caused 30 deaths, 430 injuries and 97.3 million dollars in property damage.
If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to you may need to have the dryer vent cleaned. Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily by the homeowner, but others aren’t that easy and may require the use of special tools and equipment. We have tools specifically designed to clean dryer vents and with these tools we are able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most difficult installations. While dryer vents get lint build up from usage, animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage. Our equipment allows us to remove these blockages as well.
Another problem created by blocked dryer vents serving gas dryers is the possibility of carbon monoxide seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, CO can back up into the home.

Dryer vent repairs and installations.
We specialize in dryer vent repairs and complete installations of dryer exhaust vents.

Many of our jobs include but not limited to, coring through concrete, brick or stone to create an exhaust exit. We have worked in tight areas like attics and crawl spaces to install dryer exhaust vents.
Our dryer exhaust installations are in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and per inspector/township codes. We install dedicated dryer exhaust vents, only using 4″ metal smoke pipe wherein we consider how the exhaust can be easily cleaned and maintained. Ideally, the dryer exhaust vent should be straight with no more than 2 elbows. Plastic or vinyl duct should NEVER be used for dryer exhaust venting.
Installation of dryer exhaust can be unique to each home so it would require for one of our qualified technicians to come out an survey area for installation of the dryer vent.
