Q: How much does a typical dryer vent cost to clean?
A: On average, to clean only the dryer vent, the price ranges from $125-199 depending on factors such as: length, complexity, and where it exits the home. However, if you add the dryer vent to the whole house duct cleaning, the price is typically $25-50. This makes it more cost effective to have both services done at the same time.
Dryer vent cleaning has become extremely popular over the last few years. In fact, because of fire risks, many states, cities, & municipalities now require dryer vent cleaning in some residential units that share dryer vent ducts. Also, most home insurance companies make it a priority to notify their customers of the necessity to have a clean dryer vent.
