Drop cloths or towels to protect your floors.
Inspect transition hose to make sure it's made of UL rated aluminum and properly connected. Visually inspect the full length of dryer vent that isn't enclosed in walls whether through the attic or crawl space. Must be made with fire retardant metal duct material that meets code. Test efficiency of dryer vent with an Anemometer if needed. This measures the air flow velocity created by the dryer blower to indicate any blockages. Inspection of the exterior termination vent to determine if there is lint build-up or blockage. Determine if it needs to be replaced with a proper operating vent We then explain deficiencies if any exist and prepare a written proposal of work needed to bring vent to code. Once the inspection and any necessary repairs are completed, we thoroughly clean the dryer venting system with our proprietary equipment and systems. We will remove all accumulated lint and obstructions from the entire length of the dryer vent to keep it operating and operating efficiently. We clean up after ourselves leaving the laundry room as clean if not cleaner than when we arrived.
