Question DetailsAsked on 1/27/2012

I need to have the dryer vent cleaned. Is there a reputable service in the lower Rio Grande Valley which provides this service?

I hired Dirty Ducts a few years ago, and hafd to call them back a second time. I live in a condo and am very afraid of lint fires. I live in Harlingen. Thank you.

From what i could cipher out of the last naswer he is correct that many conominiums are built with a common duct system. This is not the case for all but is for some. If you pay to have your section of vent cleaned it doesn't guarantee that everyone else's is clean as well. Do you know what the size of the duct is and the length of the run? If it is 4" and less than 20' Lowe's sells a kit that you use with a drill at a low speed to clean your own vent. If you are one of the few people who maintain their dryer vents as they are supposed to this kit will pay for itself quickly. Ask your neighbors and building management about the duct cleaning and see if they know how the duct pipes are laid out. If it's shared it should be a management concern except for the part that is dedicated just to you.
