INTERNAL VIDEO DRYER VENT INSPECTION
We conduct an internal video inspection to determine if your dryer vent needs cleaning. If to doesn't you only pay for the inspection.
DRYER VENT CLEANING
An internal video inspection of the dryer duct work will be conducted before and after
cleaning. All work is performed from the exterior. This is accomplished by using reverse flow compressed air. We enter the duct through the dryer vent cover mounted on the outside of the home. A small compressed air hose with a spinning nozzle flows air back toward the vent cover expelling the lint out of the duct. At the same time the reverse air flow pulls the hose further into the duct until it reaches the dryer. An air flow test will also be completed (if someone is available to operate the dryer) before and after the cleaning is completed. This allows us to measure dryer performance. Upon completion expelled lint is vacuumed and removed.
