One of my friends had recommended to clean my dryer vent. He had mentioned that it would help save energy and prevent possible fires. Since I did not know much about all this stuff, I did not want to try my luck! I ended up calling Dryer Vent Maintenance, the same folks that he had used as well. They came in their own van with professionals armed with like a huge vacuum cleaner and cleaned everything out in about 15 minutes and I was good to go with peace of mind! I would recommend them any time!
