Dryer Vent Cleaning Companies Are Not All The Same

Dryer vent cleaning is an easy service to sell because of its many benefits; the fee one pays for dryer vent cleaning quickly pays for itself in energy savings. The concept of dryer vent cleaning is quite simple; remove lint build-up from the dryer vent system to open the airway and promote maximum air flow.
Though the concept is simple, the job should be performed by a licensed, bonded professional dryer exhaust technician who will also spot other potential problems that the average homeowner might overlook. There is much more to the job than just running a cheap snake through the dryer ducts.
Some dryer vent cleaning companies use cheap equipment and perform unsatisfactory service. Customers notice improved dryer efficiency for a short time, but the cleaning doesn’t last because of the amount of lint that remains stuck to the sides of the dryer duct system after cleaning.
Dryer vent cleaning services might quote one price over the phone just to use a bait and switch tactic when they arrive to do the job. These companies are often in and out within 20 – 30 minutes and they don’t stand behind the work they perform.
A good dryer vent cleaning company should specialize in dryer vent cleaning, repair and installation. They should be able to do minor repairs and maintenance to the dryer as well; belts, pulleys, fuses, etc…
Before you hire a dryer vent cleaning company, check them out; Google search their name to see what is being said about them. Believe me, if there is something bad to say, people will post their view online. Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been many complaints.
Don’t get burned by your clothes dryer and don’t get burned by your dryer vent cleaning company. Manufacturers recommend having your dryer vent cleaned at least once a year to increase dryer efficiency and eliminate a fire hazard. Some insurance companies are requiring annual dryer vent cleaning to prevent dryer related fires.
