This home in Urbana (townhome on Worthington Blvd near Library) had a dryer vent that went through the roof. Unfortunately, they shingled over the hole. It's amazing the damage wasn't worse and there wasn't a fire. This is the third home we've seen in Urbana that was built like this.

One of our customers had hired two other companies to clean their dryer vent, without success. The builders had somehow managed to mangle the duct, where it exited the roof. An impressive 4 foot long solid chunk of lint was removed from the end of the duct. Vents that exit the roof present many problems and concerns. If you want a thorough inspection and cleaning, call us!

This dryer had a small fire due to internal lint buildup around the heater. The outlet of the dryer was completely clogged. Fires start INSIDE the dryer! That's why we clean the dryer as well as the vent. Other companies clean your dryer vent and leave the hazard in the dryer. We offer the best and most complete service around!

This dryer had massive internal lint buildup, and it wasn't from a clogged vent. The duct to the wall was so loose and poorly constructed that the exhaust was blowing lint all over behind the dryer. Air sucks into the dryer through vents in the back, so all that lint ended up right back in the dryer. Something as simple as a loose connection can start a fire.

Most dryer vent roof caps have a screen as seen on this photo. This gets packed with lint over time and blocks the vent. It can only be cleared properly by hand. I did yet another job in Urbana that had a completely blocked vent that almost caused a fire. If you have a roof vent, you need to be sensitive to it and get it cleaned regularly, and by someone who will do it right!

Dryer vents that go to the roof cannot be properly cleaned without accessing the vent cap from the either the roof or the attic. These photos were the result of Sears doing all of the vents in one of the homes in Urbana. Because they did not access the vent cap and clean it, the vent was still completely plugged and caused the dryer to build up lint internally. A fire was imminent. You can see the charred carpet of lint I took from the heater element and the bed of lint below the heater. Dryer vents may not be the most complicated things in the world, but they pose a very real risk of fire and should be taken seriously. Make sure you hire someone who understands them and is thorough, like me 😎.

There was a bird's nest in this dryer's duct which caused the lint to accumulate inside the dryer. It also hadn't been cleaned out in years. Notice the lint carpet on top of the heating element that was starting to burn. A fire was imminent.

Most fires start inside the dryer. No vent cleaning service is complete without a thorough cleaning of the inside of your dryer. Lint can build up quickly, especially if you have had a recent problem such as a birds nest. Here are some pictures of dryers I have opened.

One of my neighbors had a fire inside their dryer today. It was due to excessive lint buildup inside the dryer. The dryer vented through the Attic and out the roof. When I disconnected the vent from the roof I discovered that the vent was a dead end! The builder never installed a vent cap! That explains the excessive lint buildup in the dryer. If you want thorough dryer vent cleaning service, contact me. I'm the only one who cleans out the inside of your dryer as a standard part of every vent cleaning. Don't let this happen to you.

Look behind your dryer and call me if you have a disaster like this. Our $75 dryer vent cleaning package includes modifications and repairs to your extension duct for only the cost of parts. You won't get that value anywhere else! I fixed this duct for only $15 extra. Read more about our dryer vent cleaning service at https://urbanadryerventcleaning.com/services/dryer-vent-cleaning/

One of the local corporate franchise vent cleaning companies serviced this home and 'cleaned' her ventilation ducts and dryer vent. They left her with a dryer vent that had absolutely no flow! They serviced it only from the outside only and failed to even turn the dryer on to check for airflow. Either that, or they knew it wasn't flowing and left it like that. She then called a dryer technician who 'cleaned' the inside of her dryer and told her her vent was still plugged. Then she called Urbana Dryer Vent Cleaning. The image below shows how much more lint was blown out of her dryer. Her vent is clean now as well. When you call us for your dryer vent service, you can trust that we'll get the job done the right way.

The Urbana Dryer Vent Cleaning Website is being re-designed and will back up in a few days. There will be a lot of great info about all things dryer vents. We're getting a lot of questions because this info isn't available. Please be patient with us as we get all of the web stuff sorted out. In the meantime, here are answers to common questions: The standard fee for dryer vent cleaning service is $75. This service includes cleaning of your vent, dryer internals, vent cap, and area behind the dryer. It also includes an inspection of your system for safety, efficiency, and building code compliance. We also will modify and/or repair your extension duct (from the dryer to the wall) for no extra charge (other than the cost of the parts, which are inexpensive for the most part. There may be a small extra charge if we need to run to the store to get something). We employ a high speed brush mechanical cleaning for your vent with a high power vacuum/blower that can move the loosened material out. WARNING: Don't fall for the $49 duct cleaning scams on Craigslist. If you haven't heard of the scam, Google it. We charge $75 for removing a nest or dead animal from a vent (this is included with the dryer vent cleaning service). We will also disinfect, deodorize and treat your duct for pathogens and bird mites. This treatment is an additional $75 and is highly recommended, even if the birds aren't dead. Google bird mites for more info on the horrible experiences people have with them. We also do other repairs and services vent related. If you have a question, call or text us at 240-258-8968.

I keep seeing this problem in homes that I service....
Some homes have an oval shaped vent going into the wall. The vent coming from the dryer is round, however. If you have a dryer installed, ensure that the technician installs an oval to round adapter. What I have seen is the work of lazy technicians. Instead of installing an adapter, they crush the oval duct in order to fit the round duct over it. This causes a serious restriction in the duct that will catch lint and plug up your vent reducing your dryer's efficiency and increasing dryer time, as well as create a fire hazard. The picture shows one half of the adapter installed into an oval duct I had to cut in place to remove the crushed portion (I forgot to take a picture first). It was so mangled that I could only get the adapter in halfway, but it was better than ripping it all out and possibly doing sheetrock repairs. They had a brand new dryer installed by Home Depot that had an 80% vent blockage alarm and wouldn't work.

The bottom line is you should ensure the technician installs an adapter if you have an oval shaped vent coming from the wall. It will save you some headache, time and money.

When your dryer vent flap doesn't close properly, animals will nest in there. I pulled a big old nest out of this one and had to replace the entire vent hood assembly. Check yours to make sure it closes properly when the dryer is off.
