- Dryer Vent Cleaning – Dryer Vent fires are the leading cause of house fires in America, and it is recommended they be cleaned yearly or even every 6 months depending on amount of usage. Dryer vent cleaning also improves the efficiency of your dryer (usually 5-30 minutes a load). 1st floor dryer vent cleaning is usually $125 each dryer vent unless it is an add-on to other services. Then it’s only $85. 2nd & 3rd floor dryer vents have an additional charge (usually $129-149). Roof top dryer vents are usually $179-199. If the dryer vent is on the side wall of your structure or a roof we can usually access it. We can get up to 3 stories if it isn’t more than 30-33 feet. The maximum distance the dryer and vent should be 12-15 feet. Regular dryer cleaning maintenance may even lengthen the life of your dryer. You may also find loads don’t require more than one cycle. – Safety Link
