Install new dryer vent

Original dryer vent fed through walls had disengaged and was not venting. After inspection realizes it was not installed properly originally. James gave me a few options and we decided to install new vent. James came back a frw days later and installed new vent and it is working well. James is friendly and knowledgeable.

Fire hazard and James saved us a huge liability

I had called a furnace cleaning company last year to clean vents including dryer. I am not technical so i assumed the work was completed correctly. Last week i could see lint and warm air blowing from dryer. Wife thought this is just normal i knew it was not. Googled this company and I am so thankful as my 700 dryer would have burned down my house.

Thank you for the great review and I'm glad we were able to address, fix and clean the dryer venting at your residence. Dryer ducting and the lint contained inside is a potential fire risk and is best cleaned by a dryer vent professional. Furnace ducts accumulate dust not flammable lint. Having the dryer duct inspected and cleaned is often an over looked item for home owners. I'm so happy we could make safe your home. Thank you

Post Fire Inspection, Peace of mind

We had dryer vent cleaned post upgrades in Nov 2019, a dryer fire in May , 2020. Restoration company hired furnace, duct and dryer vent cleaning. Report indicated dryer vent inspected and cleaning not needed. We requested contractor to have the dryer vent rechecked, and were ignored. On preparation to move back to our home, the first time using our brand new dryer, within 15 min the flow sensor alert came on, dryer stopped and you could smell smoke. We called the Dryer vent wizard and this was the best decision. James was able to fit us into the end of his work day. He did a thorough inspection and made recommendations. Our dryer vent was dirty and clogged and the exterior venting was plugged. James cleaned and repaired our dryer vent system immediately!

I wouldn’t hire anyone else, James was responsive, professional, excellent quality of work, and gave us peace of mind returning to our home.

Thank you very much for the excellent review and comments they are much appreciated. Yes, the dryer and venting can be a very serious and potential fire risk if not inspected properly and thoroughly. I'm glad I was able to attend your residence to conduct an inspection and diagnostic check on the vent line which revealed the line was fully clogged which required cleaning and some repairs. Again, thank you for your business, I truly appreciate it.

A real wizard job

We call it a real wizard job because in about an hour James and his partner make disappear 300 bucks from my pocket. Troubleshooting about 45 minutes we mix a washroom exit with the roof vent for the dryer and 15 minutes job on the roof removing the screen from the vent and the lint build up behind. James is a smooth talker but the job not so much. He left the lint on my roof and the wind blow it to my neighbor yard so I have to collect it and this was the only think he did I did the rest with the dryer no wonder I did no like the price.

Thank you for providing feedback and I apologize if our service did not satisfy your expectations. We set a high standard for ourselves in making sure the customers home is deemed safe and not a potential fire risk due to a lint clogged dryer duct or a building code violation within the duct run.

With your residence the dryer ducting run after conducting the initial inspection and vent line check did not exit out the side of your home as you originally mentioned but went vertically up from the second floor laundry room into the attic and out to a roof vent. We accessed the roof to view the roof vent while conducting the initial inspection/ diagnostic check to determine why you were experiencing longer than normal drying times and immediately noticed that your dryer roof vent was not to code having a screen attached to it which was fully clogged with lint.

We then explained to you this blockage was a very serious potential fire risk issue and provided photos and recommendation the screen obstruction be removed, the roof vent cleared of all the lint that had collected inside and finally that a full vertical dryer duct cleaning be preformed from the roof in order that your dryer ducting was cleared of all the lint that had accumulated inside it. Prior to conducting any work we also provided you with the cost.

The majority of work was completed on the 2nd story roof of your residence. I apologize if we weren't able to collect all the lint that was removed from the vent line during this cleaning but please note the photo you attached for this review was taken by the technician to show you the amount of lint that was being cleaned from the ducting. This lint was collected from the roof after the cleaning and was not left.

Again our goal and number one priority is to make sure the customers dryer ducting is safe and not a fire risk when we have completed our work at a residence. I am sorry your experience of the service provided was not satisfactory.

cleaned my dryer vent

I had some additional work completed, and a new dryer vent cover installed. I am very happy with the work James performed. He also did something called transition venting - replaced the Mylar hose.

Thank you for leaving a review and kind comments. Making sure that the semi rigid transition hose is not made from plastic or foil wrapped in plastic is crucial in maintaining a safe and efficient dryer.
