  • Why do I need my dryer vent cleaned?

    • Because we need the money, and you need your dryer vent cleaned.

    • It increases dryer efficiency (fancy way of saying that your clothing will dry faster.)

    • It will save you money - faster dryer = shorter drying time = less money spent.

    • It will prolong the life of your dryer.

    • Clogged dryer vents are the number one cause of house fires in the United States....yes, really.

  • How often do I need the service?

    • Both the National Fire Association and most dryer manufacturers recommend that dryer vents be cleaned at least once a year, assuming normal usage (Hint - normal usage is five loads a week, but let’s be honest, we all know you do more.)

  • How do I know if my dryer needs service?

    • If you (well, actually your dryer) experience any of the following (if you experience any of these please seek medical attention immediately):

    • Drying your clothes takes longer than  usual.

    • There is a burning smell coming from the dryer, when it’s on.  

    • You notice lint stuck to the dryer or the wall next to the dryer.

    • Your laundry room or dryer area is excessively  warm and or moist.

    • Your vent flap  outside does not open and close properly (that’s the little thingy outside that hot air comes out of and flaps up and down.)

    • If there is a bird’s nest on the outside of your dryer vent exhaust (hint - you probably should have called us a while ago.)

  • Can I do the cleaning myself?

    • Well, yeah, if you’re handy and have a compressor, a strong vacuum, an anemometer and a few other nifty tools, and have an understanding of basic building codes in your state, understand when and where to use flex vs. rigid venting, what kind of guard and vent caps are proven to work, if you should use tape or screws (hint, using screws in NY state is illegal - that one is on the house) then yes, you can. Chances are though if you read that entire run-on sentence, you either don't have those or you don't want to spend your time on something you don't specialize in. The old “What can go wrong?” adage comes to mind.

  • What should I expect from a professional  dryer vent cleaning company?

    • To leave your dryer drying better than before.

    • To leave your dryer and laundry room (within reason) looking better than before.

    • To be respectful of your property and home (mud on your carpet is a big no no.)

    • To not nickel and dime you over every little thing.

    • To not do a bait and switch (well I should really charge you $4,699.74 BUUUT since I really like you guys so much I will do it for $450...and if you pay cash, $250)

  • I have lint on my dryer or around my dryer area. Is that ok?

    • Noooo. This is a clear indication that either your dryer vent is disconnected, or there is blockage. Call us right away... to service your dryer vent...or just to talk. 

  • How are you guys so awesome?

    • Practice, Practice and Omega-3 Fish Oil.

  • I don't like talking to people, can I book online?

    • Soon, very soon.

  • What should I do if I smell gas by my dryer?

    • Well to start you should not have read all the way down to here! Immediately call 911 or the utility company! Like now! Stop reading for G-d’s Sake!

  • How much does your service cost?

    • We charge $199. That includes dryers on the second floor, long runs, dryers with weird venting and other issues that other companies like to surprise you with additional charges.

  • Do you give multiple dryer discounts?

    • You bethca! For each dryer knock off $99

  • I need my dryer cleaned more than once a year. Is the price the same?

    • Nope, we’ll give you a nice break. Ask one of our awesome technicians before they start the work or call for details ….we want to focus only on short productive answers here.

  • Why are there no more FAQs?

    • Really?! That's your question? Ok you need to call us...and schedule your dryer vent cleaning...now...and then take up bottle cap collecting...just remember to empty your pockets of bottle caps before you put them in the laundry...they can mess up your dryer and then you will need to call...I think you see where this is going.
