Who we are
I’m Tom from Love’s Dryer Vent Cleaning and I'm in this business because I want to help homeowners improve the safety of their homes by reducing the #1 cause of residential home fires - dryer vent lint buildup. When I found out how extensive the damages, costs and loss of life are each year from fires caused by clothes dryers in homes (and nearly every home, condo and apartment has one) I decided I could help do something about it. I wanted to do it right so I became certified with The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and a member of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The CSIA provides the ONLY Nationally Accredited Chimney and Venting Safety and Performance Standards in the U.S. today and their Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician (CDET) achievement is the ONLY Nationally recognized dryer vent cleaning certification. The technicians who possess the CSIA CDET badge have been formally tested by the CSIA on their knowledge and understanding of proper maintenance and servicing of dryer exhaust systems and to ensure your system is operating in accordance with state and local codes, industry standards and manufacturers guidelines. Having a dryer vent service provider that possesses the CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician badge is the ONLY way you can be certain that your dryer vent cleaning specialist is adequately prepared to service your dryer venting system. Check it out for yourself. Search the CSIA site for your local certified dryer exhaust technician. Go to the link and click the 'Search Now' box and simply type in your zip-code and check the box for Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician. If you check you will find I am 1 of only 2 CSIA CDET badge holders within a 50 mile radius of Jacksonville!
My business is SPECIFICALLY and ONLY focused on dryer vent exhaust systems because lint buildup can be such a dangerous problem that lots of times, people don’t know its an issue. The problem with dryer vent lint buildup is that it can stay hidden from view and become a danger that most of us don’t know exists until something goes wrong. When is the last time you pulled your dryer away from the wall? But you may have noticed some of the warning signs. For example, your dryer may dry so slow you need to run multiple cycles to get your clothes dry, or it may stop working via the auto-shutoff if it gets too hot. BUT, in the worst case if undetected and let go for too long, it can cause a fire in the dryer which can easily spread to the vent in the walls of your home. The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA’s) latest report entitled "US-Fire-Problem/Home Fires Involving Clothes Dryers and Washing Machines" cites the latest nationally gathered statistics for residential home fires involving washers and dryers: (1) most of these home fires involved clothes dryers (92%); (2) the leading cause (31%) of home clothes dryer fires was failure to clean; and (3) the leading items first ignited in clothes dryer fires were dust, fiber, or lint (27%). The report states "U.S. municipal fire departments responded to an estimated 15,970 home fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines each year (and thats with only two-thirds of fire departments reporting!). These fires resulted in annual losses estimated at 13 civilian deaths, 440 civilian injuries, and $238 million in direct property damage." These types of losses can be prevented! The dryer vent cleaning service I provide can help solve this problem and make your home safer from the risk of fire.

What we do
As part of our service your technician will conduct a visual inspection of the transition duct, visible parts of the main exhaust duct, all visible joint connections, and the exhaust termination outlet. The visual inspection helps to determine the duct’s net length, as well as any deficiencies, deterioration or wear that may be causing your dryer to run inefficiently. This visual inspection also helps to verify if there are any fire, safety, or health hazards present. Additionally, your technician may conduct some diagnostic testing, including measuring the velocity of the dryer’s air flow with a digital Vane Anemometer, as well as measurements of the exhaust system’s static pressure (or back pressure) with a Magnehelic gauge.
Your technician will review with you the results of the evaluation, and provide an estimate for cleaning and options if other services are needed to keep your dryer running safely based upon the diagnostic inspection. Most manufacturers, as well as the NFPA’s guidelines for dryer safety (see page 4 of the report), recommend dryer vents be routinely inspected and cleaned, at least once every 12 to 24 mos. Regular inspection and cleaning greatly decreases the likelihood of a dryer exhaust duct fire, and also helps to save energy by keeping the dryer running efficiently.
What you can expect
We use the highest-quality industrial grade tools which include a variety of polymer and stainless steel brushes that have the strength and durability to completely clean the lint from inside your dryer vent duct, along with a commercial grade HEPA/OSHA certified vacuum system to capture dust, pollen, allergens and bacteria to keep the air clean.
