Musings from The Dryer Vent Dude

At my fifth year anniversary in business, I met my goal to increase my education and become nationally certified. With these credentials, you can be assured of the highest quality products and superior service when it comes to your dryer vents. I'm proud to say I am one of currently just 300 qualified professionals to hold the CSIA C-DET credential in the United States and the first in Nebraska.

“Certification through CSIA demonstrates a true commitment by the student to become the very best in their industry,” said Ashley Eldridge, Director of Education for CSIA. “By becoming more knowledgeable and certified, they become more helpful to the homeowner/customer that seeks out CSIA expertise so they can use this key appliance with less risk. Many people are unaware that having an optimal clothes drying experience requires more than just a functioning dryer. The transition duct that connects the dryer to the exhaust, the exhaust line itself, as well as the termination cap, and other elements, are just as important as the dryer.”

Keep The Critters Out

Posted by steve on November 26, 2012

Fall is almost gone and it's feeling more and more like winter.

I'd like to talk about the colder weather.  When the temp drops outside, mice and critters look for warm places.  One of the warmest places would be your dryer vent.

When the termination to the outside gets obstructed, this allows the damper or louvers to stick open.  When this happens, we all know what's next.  No one's favorite friends come in (mice).  I see this happen most on terminations of 4' and down, on the outside of the house.  I can prevent this from happening to your home!

I look forward to working with you.  Don't forget that inspections are free.  Call you schedule yours, today.

Insufficient Air Flow

Posted by steve on October 05, 2012

This is an FYI from The Dryer Vent Dude:

Every load of laundry has 1/2 to 1 gallon of water that the dryer needs to remove.  This can only happen when adequate air flows through the dryer vent.  You can tell when the air flow is inadequate when the dryer takes more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes. 

You can always count on The Dryer Vent Dude to take care of the problem.  Inspections are free.  Call Steve, The Dryer Vent Dude, with any questions at (402) 310-9530.

Heads Up

Posted by steve on September 24, 2012

The Dryer Vent Dude has a heads-up for everyone! 

If your dryer takes two cycles to dry your clothes, it is costing you too much money!  After I clean your dryer vent, you should be able to dry the load in one cycle.  That will cut your dryer costs in half, reduce the wear and tear on you dryer and clothes, not to mention, make your home MUCH safer.

Inspections are free.  Call Steve, The Dryer Vent Dude for an appointment at (402)310-9530.

Clean and Check Your Air Conditioner, Yearly

Posted by admin on May 09, 2011

Today I will talk about air conditioners and coils.  If you want to get the most out of your air conditioner while using as little electricity as possible, you need to have the system cleaned and checked.  The Dryer Vent Dude will clean the outside condenser and the inside coil and condensate line and make sure the refrigerant levels are good.  We will discuss if any refigerant is needed.  If you need a filter or are interested in a six or twelve month supply, let me know.  I only use good, commercial grade filters that should be good for 3 months, under normal usage.  I will also check the blower wheel and motor of the furnace and oil if needed.

When I am there, I would like to check your dryer vent to make sure it is safe and in great working condition.

The Dryer Vend Dude can also change your thermostat, if needed. 

When you take these easy and affordable steps, you will save money and energy for the future.  Let The Dryer Vent Dude do his part and help you stay within your budget.

Fire Safety Awareness

Posted by admin on April 17, 2011

Today, I will talk about fire safety.  I have cleaned many dryer vents that are completely plugged.  When a customer calls, I like to ask how the dryer is working.  Sometimes, they say it takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry clothes.  That may be a fire waiting to happen, and that is when you need The Dryer Vend Dude.  There are some signs to look for, then you know you need my help.

  1. Lint out side, on you dryer vent cap or on the ground.
  2. Lint build-up in your utility room.
  3. The sides and top of your dryer are hot.
  4. It takes more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes.

A couple of weeks ago, there was another dryer fire in a Lincoln apartment building.  People need to understand that their dryer vent needs regular maintenance, just like your car or your lawn mower.  The Dryer Vent Dude would like you to know he is there for you.  I will give you superior service with a smile.  Please, call to find out about my competitive pricing and let me go easy on your budget.

I look forward to meeting many new customers.  Remember, I want everyone to help practice fire safety.  Please, let The Dryer Vent Dude do his part, and make sure your dryer  vent is clean and safe.

Competitive Pricing

Posted by admin on March 29, 2011

Today, let's talk about affordability.  When it comes to dryer vent cleaning and air conditioner clean and checks, the Dryer Vent Dude is very competitive with his pricing.  I feel that we can give superior service at an affordable price.

With today's economy, people need to be budget minded and that is where the Dryer Vent Dude can help.  I can clean your dryer vent, or your air conditioning system or both.  The more I do, the more you save.  These are things that should be cleaned at least once a year.  There are times when you air conditioner should be cleaned twice a year.

When you let me clean the systems, you will use less electricity, which helps with your budget as well as helps the world.  Do your part to help Go Green and save money.  Let the Dryer Vent Dude do his part to make sure you are safe while you're saving money.
