Our experienced, dryer exhaust technicians perform a full diagnostic inspection to accurately assess the service needed on your dryer exhaust system.
During a dryer vent inspection our technicians will conduct a multi-point safety check and use the manufacturer-recommended testing methods and equipment to evaluate and test the safety and performance of your dryer exhaust duct.
The evaluation begins with a visual inspection of the transition hose, main exhaust duct (if visible), all visible joint connections, and termination outlet. The visual inspection helps us to determine the ducts net length and check for any deficiencies, repairs, or re-routes that may be needed to keep your dryer running properly. This visual inspection also helps to verify if there are any fire, safety, or health hazards present.
After our thorough visual inspection, one of our technicians will test the velocity of the air flow with a digital vane anemometer and measure the exhaust system’s static pressure (back pressure) with a Magnehelic gauge. Our technicians will provide a written evaluation report and estimate based upon the diagnostic inspection. They will go over the evaluation report with the homeowner and walk them through the services needed to keep their home safe.
Most manufactures, as well as the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), recommend dryer vents be routinely inspected and cleaned at least once per year. Annual inspection and cleaning greatly decreases the likelihood of a dryer exhaust duct fire and helps to save energy by keeping the dryer running efficiently.
