According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries and $35 million in property loss. Failure to clean was the leading factor contributing to the ignition of clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.

We remove lint, birds nests and articles of clothing from dryer vents from homes, beauty salons, apartments and condos. We sanitize to kill mold, fungus, mildew and bacteria. Our work is always done promptly and professionally.
Dryer vents routinely can only push hot air and lint at 10 to 15 feet through a vent pipe (review with your particular dryer installation instructions to determine the recommended length). If the dryer vent pipe exceeds the manufacturer's distance recommendations, your dryer vent should be routinely cleaned to prevent damage to your dryer or home.
Keep birds out of your exhaust vents with the "Bird Guard" provided exclusively by Air Duct Cleaners of Virginia for $75.00 with all vent cleanings. Bird Guard is designed for 4" X 4" vent openings only and comes in white or dark brown.
