    I got the dryer vent cleaned today!

    Advertisements
    OMG it looked like it was snowing outside! I am so glad I did it! He said it looked like it had never been clean, and it was almost full.

    I noticed our new HE dryer didn't work as well here in the new house, and then the roofer told us the dryer vent looked clogged. And boy was it.

    The guy said he could barely feel air before, and now it blows full force.

    That was such a fire hazard, and I am so relieved to know we took care of it.

    I had the chimney cleaned while I was at it, since it's $50 cheaper off season.

    I'm a happy camper. Carpets/tile/upholstery are being cleaned this weekend too. Now if I can just fix the ant problem (see other post) I will be flying high!

    I used A Step in Time Chimney Cleaners. The dryer vent was $129, and the chimney was $119.

    I know that sounds like a lot, but after seeing what came out of it, and seeing all the dryer-related house fires on the news lately, I think it was worth every single penny.

    The guy that came out was Matt - he was very friendly and helpful.

    That is so scary! I'm glad your dad was there!

    I'm in Virginia Beach - I think this company does DC, VA, and MD.
