“It was very negative. For one, despite repeated calls through their 1-800 service, no response—I called them five times to get them to call and give me an estimate. All of the other dryer companies I called gave estimates up-front. When the guy finally called me, he gave me the price, which he would do it within $5.00 of the other people. I agreed to it. He comes out, and then he padded the bill. He said, 'Oh, I've got to charge you for the duct tape when I take the vent down, and I’ve got to charge you for the cleaning supplies.' It went from the $135.00/$140.00 price to $240.00, versus all the other people saying that the final price would be $145.00. So he called his boss, and his boss was like, 'Oh, you should have known that.' I said, 'I shouldn't have known any darn thing. That was the whole point of calling you five times to get a price.' I would grade the overall experience with a D. I would never recommend them or use them again.”

“They were very nice. They did a good job. I liked that they knew their job. They came in, they were quick, nice, professional and quickly did the job. No complaints after that. Definitely would hire them again if I need additional work to be done. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. Expertise—they knew exactly what they were looking for.”

“They did a good job. It was a pretty good experience. I’d give them an A-. They kind of worked really quick. I think that I had a couple of questions that I couldn't get answered because they were working so fast, but besides that, they did a pretty job. Cleanliness—there were a few dust areas that they left.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard did my dryer vent about a year ago. I had a good experience. They cleaned it and put a new clasp to it. The technician was friendly. He did the job and got it done. I’d say they are an A company. I would recommend them.”

Review by

“They moved a dryer vent for me. They finished it in one day, and they were priced reasonably. They showed up on time, did what they said they were going to do, and then they were out of here. We've had no problems with their cleaning. I'd say they're an A+”

Review by
09/07/2016

“I think they replaced the coil or the hose on the back of my dryer. They also cleaned out the vent on the top of my roof because it was pretty clogged. I'll give them an A+. The only thing that I would change is that it was a little pricey for what they did, but that's it.”

Review by
09/07/2016

“They replaced a vent that was clogged from my roof. They were very professional. They knew what they were doing. They had the parts in stock, and they got it done. I'd give Dryer Vent Wizard an A. I already recommended them to my neighbors who also used them.  ”

Review by

“They did some cleaning and a replacement of some dryer vent lights. Everything was excellent. It was actually a tenant's place, and they were very nice to my tenants. They explained everything we needed, very well, and we were able to work out a good solution with all of the options on the table, so it was a very happy experience. I would recommend them again.  ”

“My boyfriend was here while the work was being done because I was at work. He mentioned to me that they were polite and professional, that they communicated well, and that everything was done in a neat manner. Without having been here in person, and just based on what my boyfriend said, I would probably say they're a B+.”

Review by

“I would say I had a generally positive experience, but they were massively overpriced for what they did. They did a dryer vent cleaning. I had to go back to them and have them - They were overpriced to start with and they overcharged me, but I went back to them and complained and they did adjust the price. I liked the piece of mind that it gave me thinking that they were making my dryer safer.”

Review by
09/07/2016

“Dryer Vent Wizard did work at a house we rented out. They installed a dryer vent. The dryer was vented into the room, but the new buyers wanted it vented outside. Most air conditioning people wouldn't do it, so we had to get them. I liked that they did it because it was hard to find somebody. The guy was personable, but I can't remember his name. The price was reasonable, compared to others. It was quick and easy, and it worked. I'd give them an A. I would be very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
09/07/2016

“The work is fine. I'd never had my dryer vents cleaned before. I had acquired the property from someone else and I didn’t know if they had had it cleaned either, so I figured I should just do it. They were knowledgeable and pointed out what the worse situation could be. They found out I didn't have the worst situation and made some recommendations. I had a choice on what I wanted done and what it would cost. They were very informative and clear about the instructions. I give them an A-.”

“He was very efficient, and he actually did a better job than anybody had done before so that was nice. He made me aware that the cap on my dryer vent on the outside of my home was not within code, and he changed that. He did a good job. He cleaned the dryer vent and replaced the outside cap. I researched and saw that these guys had really good reviews. It was more expensive than I anticipated. By the time he got there he needed to do this and that, and it ended up being a lot more expensive. They are definitely an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“The technician came on time when I expected him to, and that was really helpful. He was really knowledgeable about the issues that I was having, and he was able to fix the issue that I had but also recommend other solutions that would keep me from having the same problem again. He had to do dryer vent cleaning, but he also had to replace an outdoor vent. He also did something where he took the back of the dryer off and actually cleaned inside of the dryer itself as well. I’ll give Dryer Vent Wizard an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I thought the people were well informed. I'm not usually an easy sell, but I have dealt with commercial dryers in the past and know they can be a real fire issue if you don't take care of them or have the right one. They sold me on what they put in them. He installed the dryer vent. It was a full installation. He took down the other one that was potentially dangerous, but we put a new one in because we got a new dryer, and I wanted to make sure that this was done properly. I think what was done was done properly, professionally, and to my specifications as far as making sure the exterior and the brick for the exhaust were not messed with. They did a great job.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I remember that they were very helpful, and I thought they did a good job. We didn't have our dryer vent correctly put in. We bought the house, and the previous owners were actually supposed to take care of it, but they never did. We had to hire Dryer Vent Wizard to do that, and they did a good job of it because it was complicated. They are definitely A++.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“The venting was all clogged up. We had had one company supposedly unclog it, but they didn't, so the dryer wasn't working right. Dryer Vent Wizard came in and properly did the whole cleaning from the dryer to where it vented outside. They understood the problem, and they did a good job addressing it. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I liked how thorough they were with what they did. He cleaned the dryer vent, but he did have to take a bird’s nest out of there too. He also pointed out that the hoses on our washer were really worn, and that helped us prevent what could have been a bad accident. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“The guy that came there, it just seemed like he was trying to sell me different things. He was there very quickly and it was a lot more than I was expecting it was going to be and he really didn't do too much either. It was just the dryer vent cleaning. I'd give them a D overall.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I believe he was on time, he took care of the problem, and it was reasonably priced. The dryer vent was clogged. There was actually a bird’s nest in it, so he cleaned it out and put a thing over it so the birds couldn't make another nest in the vent. I would say an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They cleaned the dryer vent. They were very thorough, and they told me they would get in touch with me in two years when it was time to do it again. I found out about them through the place where I bought my appliances. I would say they get an A.”

Review by

“I know they had to clean out the dryer vent. We live in a townhouse so it's like halfway, and it was just full of birds’ nests. It was major. It was a big deal. I think I'd give them an A-. He did great work, but it was pretty expensive.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“It was a disaster. The work I had had done on the dryer vent, the ducting, he tore the ducting to pieces and I just recently had it redone again at $1500. I would not recommend them to anyone at anytime, especially the guy that was at my house.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They seemed knowledgeable. They put in a new outside vent, and then they replaced one of the coils behind the dryer with some better coils. The appliance repair guy noticed that I had a lot of lint within my dryer, so he referred me to them.”
