“They did vent cleaning. They identified the place for introducing the cleaning brush on my roof fairly quickly, and the job was generally done quickly as well. I thought they did a good job.”

“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.”

“The man from Dryer Vent Wizard was very efficient, and he actually did a better job than anybody had done before, so that was nice. He cleaned the dryer vent and replaced the outside cap. They get an A.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard was very thorough. They changed a hose on our dryer, and they added an animal guard on the vents from our dryer to the outside of the house. They are A for excellent.”

“They did a perfectly fine job. Through trial and error, I found out that the dryer vent was clogged. Dryer Vent Wizard had to take the screen off and clean it, and the dryer worked after that. The worker was courteous, and everything was fine with their cleanup. I would use them again, and I would give them an A+.”

“They cleaned the dryer vents. The quality of their work was good; it has held up well. The technician was a nice, friendly, and clean guy. I would give Dryer Vent Wizard an A+ grade.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard cleaned my vent, and they did a good job. I have no complaints. They get an A+.”

“They repaired a dryer vent and cleaned out the exhaust vent. The quality of their work was fine. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They cleaned the dryer vent, and they put in a new attachment. I didn't even know where the vent came out of the house, and they located that for me. The work was well done, and the technicians were very friendly and very professional. I have since gotten a new, much shorter dryer vent, so I hope I will be able to clean my own dryer vent in the future, but I would hire them again. The quality of their service was an A.”

“My system was not working completely, but things turned out OK. Everybody from Dryer Vent Wizard was fine. They cleaned up after themselves. I would give them an A.”

“I think very highly of Dryer Vent Wizard. They did a very good job. The individual that they sent out was a very good person—very happy and charismatic. The quality of the work was fantastic, and the customer service was wonderful. They fixed all of our problems. I'd absolutely use them again. They're an A+.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard cleaned my dryer vent. The quality of work was excellent, and the technician was great—I felt like he was trustworthy. He was friendly and thoughtful, and he offered me some tips based on the way my house was designed. It's worked great since he was here. I'd give them an A.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard cleaned our dryer vent, and the technician was very thorough and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explained the process and things that we might need to change and update as necessary. The work was very high quality.”

“I had an excellent experience. Dryer Vent Wizard came and fixed my dryer, and they were great. They replaced the dryer vent, they re-vented it to the outside, and they cleaned out some of the stuff that had gotten between the walls and the garage. The quality of the work was excellent. I would absolutely use the company again. I would give them a grade of A+.”

“It was a very positive experience. The dryer has been working fine—much better, actually. The workers were friendly and explained well what they were doing. They had empathy that it would require more than they thought it seemed to; it took a bunch of holes in the wall, and they were just sorry that they had to do a big job. They were wonderful, and they did a nice job of putting the piece back in. I take an A+ very seriously, but I think they deserve one.”

“They had to come back a second time because we were actually having further issues with the vent, and they came out and just did an extensive, extensive second round of work to make sure that the vent was running properly. And they just did a great, great job, and they didn't bill me additionally for the second visit. I was very impressed. The person who came was very polite, very knowledgeable, very hardworking, and very clean and tidy. I was very pleased. I'd give them an A+.”

“It was excellent. They did dryer vent work for me, and they helped us solve the problem. They were timely when they showed up, and they didn't try to push more on us than what we wanted. I heard of them from an appliance repair company—they recommended them. I'd recommend them, too—they're great. A+.”

“I'm assuming everything was done correctly. The technician that came out was super nice. Other than that, it was just a normal experience. I didn't have a problem with the dryer, but I moved into a home that was about 12 years old, and I just wanted to make sure that the dryer vent area was cleaned because I'm not sure if it was ever cleaned. I would give them an A. They were good.”

“They were able to get there in a timely manner, within a couple days, and the work was done efficiently. It was successful. They re-vented the dryer. It needed a new opening outside of the house—because the high-efficiency dryer needed a four-inch, and I guess it was three-inch—so they had to put it through a different area, so that was fine. The contractor that did the work on the house recommended them. They did great. I'd give them an A.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard did a good job. They cleaned up after they left. They were honest and accurate in what they did, and I will continue to use them. I called them because we hadn't had our vents cleaned out in a while, so I started with the dryer. Most people don't clean out the dryer vents, they build up, and then eventually fires can start. It was preventative is why I called them. They were courteous when they came out. I would give Dryer Vent Wizard an A+ grade.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard seemed like they knew what they were doing, they explained everything, and they showed up on time—all the things you look for. They cleaned my dryer vents. We had a clog in the vent, which actually caused our dryer to overheat, so the dryer blew a fuse. We replaced the fuse, and then it broke again, and so I said, 'Oh, OK, there's something blocking the vent,' so that is why we called them. The second time the fuse broke on the dryer, we had called in a service company to fix the dryer, and they were the ones that recommended Dryer Vent Wizard. I'd give them an A+.”

“The employee from Dryer Vent Wizard that came here and did the work was a very nice person. He explained everything that was going to be done, did the work, and there weren't any issues afterward. He took his time and didn't race through it. The customer service was fine—I set up the appointment with no problem. They did the job in a timely manner, and they cleaned up well after their service. I would use them again. I'd give them an A+. They were good.”

“It was a very nice experience with Dryer Vent Wizard. Wally came to our house, and he did a good job. He cleaned out the vent. He was very friendly and very helpful and cleaned up well after he was finished. I would give them an A+. I would use this company again, for sure.”

“The guy from Dryer Vent Wizard was very friendly, and he got everything done that needed to be done. He did the dryer vents. I felt like the technician had a good attitude, and I was comfortable having him in my home, and he did the service in a timely manner. I'd give Dryer Vent Wizard an A+. I would tell other homeowners to use them.”

“Dryer Vent Wizard did a good job. They were on time, they were friendly, and they took care of things that I needed them to take care of. They knew what they were talking about. They didn't have to clean; they installed something, but I don't know exactly what they installed. They arrived on time, and it took them about an hour and a half or two hours to do the work. I would give them a grade of A+. It is a good service.”

“The technician from Dryer Vent Wizard was really nice and informative and did a really good job. He cleaned out the dryer vent, and the quality of the work that was done was good. That was our first occasion to use the company, and I would use them again. They were an A+. We mentioned them to neighbors who have already used them.”

“They were great. We were very pleased with them, and we signed them to a yearly contract. I give them an A+.”

“They came in, they got the job done quickly, and they left. That's what we like—they come in and get the job done. They pointed out things we needed to see in regards to the dryer vent. They came in, they saw a problem, and they got it fixed. I'd rate them an A+.”

“I think the technician that came out was very knowledgeable and was able to come to the quick resolution that we were looking for and fixed it the same day. He ended up cleaning the dryer vent. The dryer hadn't been heating very well—like we would have to put the laundry in for a few cycles—so the technician came out and realized that there was a lot of dust and lint, I guess, in there. Ever since it's been cleaned, it's been a lot better. He was very professional and very friendly, and we overall had a good experience. We'd recommend them to our friends. They deserve an A+.”

“The man knew what he was doing, and he gave us some pretty good information before he even started. He got the thing cleaned out in less than 45 minutes, and everything is working fine. The issue that we thought was with the dryer was not the dryer—it was a dryer vent that had never been cleaned out in the ten years the home had existed. We were referred to Dryer Vent Wizard. I would give them an A+.”

“I gave him a very small window as to when he could arrive, and he showed up on time and got it done. He was a real nice guy and just overall did everything right—just a good guy. I don't know if he was the owner or not, but he seemed like the owner. He did well by his customer. I can definitely tell a difference after the service. I give them an A+.”

“They came out when we needed them, and they did the job. He was a nice guy and helped us out. Our dryer broke down and part of the problem was the clogged vent, so the guy that fixed the dryer gave us the number for Dryer Vent Wizard. The vent's working now—it's an A+. He was really nice. He helped us out and cleaned up, and he gave us some tips and some little beer cozies, so we're happy.”

“They were responsive and didn't perform work that wasn't necessary. They made an assessment and made a determination that the thing I called them about was unnecessary. They were recommended by the company that services my appliances. I'd rate them an A+.”

“They just knew what they were doing and did it decently. They had to cut into the wall and put a whole new vent system out through the roof. They were referred to me by the appliance repairman. He said, 'You don't need a service man—you need a vent man.' So he gave me their name. The technician was very good, very good—no problems. They were an A+.”

“The technician was very thorough. He explained what he needed to do and why he had to change certain things that weren't up to code in my unit. They were recommended to me by someone who serviced my dryer. I would give them an A+. I've noticed a difference after the service.”

“I think the guy did it on my house. He came in and zippity-doo-dah—he fixed it. My piping was lying on the floor behind the dryer and all that lint was in there, so he cut that, and then he hooked it up into the pipe that was in an upstairs laundry closet. The metal strip from the back of the dryer was lying on the floor behind the dryer, and it wasn't straight up, so he fixed it so that it's going straight up now. He did a good job. I'd give him an A+ because he's very serious and dedicated. My washer and dryer are side-by-side, big models in a closet, and you have to pull them out because there's not much space there, which he did very carefully. He really did a good job.”

“I was very happy with Dryer Vent Wizard. He was just very thorough, very friendly, and very competent. Everything was done correctly. They cleaned out my dryer vent, they cleaned out the outside of my dryer vent, and they replaced part of the outside dryer vent because it was just not adequate at keeping little varmints out. They're very good. In fact, I recommended them to a friend. I would definitely say an A+ and use them again.”

“They're very good—I recommend them. They know what they're doing, and they do it right. They take care of three commercial buildings on a campus. I have never had to call them back—they do it right. They are knowledgeable and very reliable. I don't think there's anything they can improve on in the future—they've got their game on. A+.”
