Dryer Vent Fires

Midtown Dryer Vent Cleaning

There are 16,000 reported annual home fires related to laundry center fires in American.

At Midtown Chimney Sweeps and Dryer Vent Cleaning we use a brush and high velocity air to remove the physical presence of lint, which in turn gives your dryer vent system increased flow, and typically resolves long dryer time problems.

Dryer Vent Fires Cause Residential Home Fires*

It is no secret that a dirty clothes dryer vent creates back pressure on the system. This back pressure is caused because the blower cannot push all the exhaust air through the restricted system. This air gets hotter than normal because the flow has been reduced. The combination of decreased flow and steadily rising temperature and the presence of combustible lint is the apparent source of most of the 16,000 reported annual home fires related to laundry center fires in American residences. At Midtown Chimney Sweeps and Dryer Vent Cleaning we use a brush and high velocity air to remove the physical presence of lint, which in turn gives your dryer vent system increased flow, and typically shorter dry times.

Dryer Flex Hoses 

A dryer vent fire possibility may be reduced with the use of properly UL Listed and Tested dryer vent flex hose. At Midtown Chimney Sweeps we specialize in preparing your dryer vent for safe operation. We do so by recommending and installing UL Listed, made in America dryer connectors by IN-O-Vate Technologies.

Dryer Wall Vents used by Midtown Chimney Sweeps

A dryer vent fire possibility may also be reduced by the proper termination of the dryer vent outside the home. At Midtown Chimney Sweeps we specialize in dryer vent cleaning and inspection, and installing the flapper device on the outside of your house that discharges the dryer exhaust air. We use a powder-coated 22 gauge sheetmetal dryer wall vent that is Made In America.

    Had them come to do a chimney sweep and dryer vent clean for a condo I just purchased. They were efficient and amazingly helpful, performing the chimney sweep efficiently and going way above and beyond on the dryer vent clean! They found a bird's nest that had been lodged in the dryer vents and was a possible fire hazard - and took care of it and cleaned everything perfectly. I will definitely use them again for future annual chimney sweeps and would highly recommend the to anyone around! Thank you so much!

    Tikar was really professional, punctual and got straight to work. He answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful info about the wood burning stove since I've never used one before. Thank you, Tikar!

    I've used these guys twice and had an excellent experience both time. Scheduling is easy and communication with the company is very professional. They were very conscientious about putting down drop cloths and keeping everything clean. And they went way above and beyond providing excellent service. I had bought a remote for our propane fireplace a year before and never installed it for myself. When Midtown installed it and it didn't work right away, they personally took it back the place from whom I'd made the purchase to troubleshoot before returning to complete the installation. And spent a ton of extra time on the return trip because they discovered a gasket on that fireplace needed to be replaced and they did it right then and there. I can't say enough good things about these guys!

    My experience with Midtown Sweeps was primarily through their employee, Jason Allen, who was polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The top of one of my fireplace chimneys had blown off during a major windstorm which is common in Evergreen. I also had a problem with a woodpecker getting in the chimney and wood-pecking on it at all times of the day and night. Jason efficiently climbed on the roof and replaced the chimney top and we had a fun discussion about woodpeckers. If Jason represents Midtown Sweeps as a typical employee, then I recommend the company at a high level and would recommend the company to anyone who needs chimney support.

    Glen was terrific. He got here on time, was curtious and cleaned up after himself both inside and out. Price was fair. I'd recommend Midtown without hesitation.
