We moved into an older home and realized our dryer was taking 3 cycles to dry towels. We also pulled a handful of lint the side of my dog from the 2nd floor exterior vent. I stopped doing laundry and called the Dryer Vent Doctor and spoke with Matt. He and his partner (adorable husband wife team) came out and cleaned a disgusting amount of debris from dryer and vent. Also replaced some venting because the existing elbow vent areas were made of plastic. Plastic??!! And replaced vent cover and venting leading up to it. They kept the lint contained and cleaned up after themselves. Overall: speedy service, fair price, responsive, professional, respectful of property. Would highly recommend!

I'm so glad I had the Vent Doctor team clean out my dryer vent. It needed it...folks who installed the dryer hadn't tightened the hose in the back, lint everywhere. Great job, am recommending them to friends and will have them come back to my house next year.

We recently moved into a townhouse and noticed that our dryer, which, though old, had previously worked great, was taking way longer to dry our laundry than at our previous home. We were told all kinds of things by handymen and salesmen regarding our need for a new dryer. Instead, we decided to have our ducts cleaned - that was the right decision. Dryer Vent Doctor was quick to schedule us in, and proceeded to give the ducts what was probably their only cleaning in 15 years. What a difference! We highly recommend this service and Dryer Vent Doctor in particular for their efficiency and professionalism.

This was the best decision I have made for my dryer. Until it needed repair from a blown fuse, I didn't even think about cleaning the vent; I just cleaned the lint trap in the dryer. I found Dryer Doctor on the internet and I am so happy I did. They were very professional, thorough, and gave exceptional value for what I was charged. I would highly recommend them to anyone. The web page is full of important information that was very helpful to me.

Matt and Alex came out the day after I called about my dryer taking 4 hours to dry clothes. They were totally professional - they went into the crawlspace under my house to examine my vent, then selected the appropriate tools for the job. They explained everything they were doing, and even improved the placement of my dryer in the laundry room so I have a bit more floorspace. The price was a nice surprise as well, considering the work they did. I am planning to have them come out every year to do preventive maintenance on my dryer vent. They were terrific and I'd recommend them without any hesitation.

Thank you, Matt and Alex! You saved the day! Back in September we had our dryer vent cleaned out and repaired by another company we found on the internet. Needless to say, we were not happy with the results and it was taking three hours to dry one load. We knew something was wrong. We called Dryer Vent Doctor and talked with Matt about our problem. He and Alex were at our house within the week. Matt evaluated the situation, made his recommendation with patient explanation, and reassured us that what he was doing in our house is what he would do in his own. After a little under two hours, Matt and Alex had our dryer vent cleaned, installed new duct work, and had our dryer working better than it had in years! We are drying a load of clothes now (such as towels and jeans) in about 30 minutes. We will definitely call Matt and Alex next year to come out and clean our dryer vent. They saved the day!

Thank you Matt and Alex! Matt arrived on time and installed all new metal ducting for me, also a bird guard and metal transition ducting between the dryer and wall ducting. I am VERY pleased with the quality of work and clean up. Matt performed quality workmanship and took the time to explain to me what he was doing and how it would improve safety and drying time. The labor rates were fair and well within market prices. Matt showed me how my old plastic ducting had gotten so clogged with lint and a bird's nest that it is a miracle we never had a fire. Wow, my first dryer load after Matt left took only 25 mins to dry. I highly recommend Matt's services and know how.

We called and left a message after hours and received a call the next day and within two days the work was completed. We had Matt install a dryer vent in our under construction home. He spoke to us about our options, made recommendations, and executed perfectly. Thank you to Matt!

After moving into our new home over 10 years ago we had been through 4 dryers. We had no idea the builder had left a small plastic piece on the attic dryer vent that was preventing ventilation. Matthew came out to inspect everything about a month ago and immediately identified the problem. He was quick, efficient, and very reasonably priced. Our newest dryer should work for years to come now. Great service and great company. Thank you so much for all you do!

Matt was truly awesome and a GOD send for my cleaning out my dryer vent. He also replaced the transition hose which was in bad shape. He prevented a potential fire hazard in my home. I am grateful for his service. I signed up for a yearly maintenance check with his company to ensure my dryer vent stays clear and clean. Thank you Matt! Kendra, Covington, GA

We have had issues with our dryer since moving into our house 10 years ago. Finally, it became apparent that something HAD to be done with the dryer's vent to the outside. My husband was sure they would have to tear up the floor in the laundry room. Instead, they spent hours in the crawl space underneath our house replacing the old vent that was made out of old gutter drain pipe material. No wonder it took forever to get our clothes dry--- there was very limited air clearance to the outside. Matthew did a great job -- it took several hours -- but it is now GREAT and well worth the cost! MANY thanks.
