DRYER VENT CLEANING

WHAT’S INCLUDED AND WHAT’S NOT

CLICK HERE for symptoms of a dirty dryer vent.

Our STANDARD Dryer Vent Cleaning  is focused on the cleaning of the dryer duct work and includes the following:

For “Roof Exit” Dryer Vents – cleans will be performed from inside the home from the dryer to the vent cap.  Roof access is NOT included.  It is important to have the laundry room as cleared as possible and both the washer and dryer emptied for service.  The dryer will be moved during the clean.  If you have a particularly delicate floor in the laundry room, please have the dryer moved in advance.  Technicians will clean the dryer duct from the wall entrance to the cap utilizing some combination of rotating brushes, vacuums, compressed air and blowers.  Additionally, the dryer hose connecting the dryer to the wall will be cleaned and technicians will advise if replacement is recommended.  Since we live in an area where hail is common, roof pitches tend to be steep to minimize damage.  95% of Dryer vent cleans can be accomplished without roof access.  PLEASE NOTE – Damaged, malfunctioning or clogged roof vent caps are not part of our Standard Clean.  We can refer you to a roofing contractor or handyman that is more equipped to handle roof access if the vent cap needs attention.  This is for the safety or your home and our technicians.

For “Wall Exit” Dryer vents – cleans will be performed from inside the home from the dryer to the vent cap.  If the wall exit is safely accessible, technicians may clean from the outside in.  It is important to have the laundry room as cleared as possible and both the washer and dryer emptied for service.  The dryer will be moved during the clean.  If you have a particularly delicate floor in the laundry room, please have the dryer moved in advance.  Technicians will clean the dryer duct from either the interior wall entrance to the exit or from the exit into the interior wall entrance utilizing some combination of rotating brushes, vacuums, compressed air and blowers.  Additionally, the dryer hose connecting the dryer to the wall will be cleaned and technicians will advise if replacement is recommended.  PLEASE NOTE – Damaged or malfunctioning wall vent cap repair or replacement are not part of our Standard Clean.  It we see that the cap is damaged or clogged and not safely accessible, we can refer you to a roofing contractor or handyman that is more equipped to handle repair if the vent cap needs attention.  This is for the safety or your home and our technicians.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO SEE CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE AN IMPROPER ROOF OR WALL VENT CAP HAS BEEN INSTALLED, THE CAP IS MALFUNCTIONING OR CLOGGED BUT NOT SAFELY ACCESSIBLE.  RIPLEY SERVICES IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DRYER VENT CAP ISSUES, BUT WE ARE HAPPY TO REFER YOU TO A ROOFER OR HANDYMAN TO HELP RESOLVE THE PROBLEM.  OUR FOCUS IS DRYER DUCT WORK.

NESTS AND BLOCKAGES MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL WORK AT AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE.  WE DON’T ALWAYS KNOW IF A BLOCKAGE IS PRESENT UNTIL A CLEAN BEGINS.

AS WITH ALL OF OUR SERVICES, WE STAND BEHIND OUR WORK AND IF WE MISSED SOMETHING WE ARE HAPPY TO RETURN AND RE-CLEAN!  IF A VENT CAP ISSUE IS DISCOVERED, WE MAY REFER YOU TO A HANDYMAN OR ROOFING COMPANY TO DEAL WITH CAP ISSUES SINCE THEY ARE NOT PART OF OUR SERVICE.  Annual Cleaning is recommended for most dryer vents.  Heavy use households and multiple bend ducts may require more frequent cleaning.

MOST Standard Cleans can be performed in the $149-199 range.  Blockages and nests are extra, but can generally handled for an additional $49.  This covers 95% of dryer vent cleans.  Vent cap clogs, damage or malfunction will be referred to someone equipped to handle the issue and rates can vary.
