Entretien extérieur de bâtiment
Just had our dryer vents cleaned and was very impressed with the service from start to finish.
The crew was very professional and not only cleaned the vents but fixed some deficiencies as well. We’ve also had our gutters cleaned and experienced the same great service.
Thanks to PMG Maintenance for doing such a great job! Scheduling was fast and price was very reasonable.
- Mr. MacDonald, Stittsville
Was having a problem with the dryer due to an accumulation of lint in the dryer vent.
Came the same day as we called.
Arrived when they said they would even though it was probably past their normal working hours.
Were courteous and professional.

This is how we do it!
On a standard installation:
-Upon arrival, we will start the dryer and measure the air flow exiting the vent from outside.
-We will take a picture of the inside of your duct before maintenance.
-We will look at the general condition of your installation.
-We disconnect the dryer and pull it out of its place to access the exhaust.
-With our specialized equipment, we will clean: the whole duct, inside the dryer exhaust, the lint filter, the filter area, surfaces behind the dryer and the outside register.
-We will reconnect and reposition the dryer.
-A second picture of the inside of the duct is taken once cleaned.
-The air flow is measured once more for comparison.
How to limit lint build-up.
- Some materials should not go in the dryer (plastic, rubber, foam, etc).
- Use a liquid softener in the washer rather than softener sheets in the dryer. Residue from the sheets can block dryer filters and leave oily residue and chemicals which may be flammable in the dryer.
- Lighter loads.
-Use the dryer for lighter loads, it should take 30 to 40 minutes to dry. This permits adequate air flow and reduces lint build-up. By drying too many clothes at once, the dryer must work much harder to do its job and it may take twice as long.
-When possible, hang blankets, pillows or other large items to dry.
