  • 1) Clean the lint screen after every load. Your clothes will dry faster, your dryer will operate more efficiently, AND you will reduce the risk of fire hazard.

  • 2) Softener sheets can cause a waxy build up on the lint screen. Occasionally wash the lint screen with soapy water and dry it before replacing it in the dryer.
  • 3) Any needed repairs should be made at once. Never operate a faulty dryer.

  • 4) Have the dryer duct and lint compartment cleaned by a professional at least every 2 years. Longer vents may need to be cleaned more often.

  • 5) Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using any appliance.
  • 6) Make sure that the dryer’s exhaust duct is unrestricted and free of blockage. Also make sure the flap on the outside works properly.
  • 7) Never exhaust a dryer into any other duct, gas vent, chimney or crawl space.

  • 8) Never allow the gas line to any appliance to become kinked. If you ever smell gas contact your local gas company at once.
  • 9) Keep the area around the dryer free of excess clothing or combustible material.
  • 10) Never dry articles of clothing that have been exposed, even a little, to any sort of flammable liquids such as gasoline or cleaning solvents, etc.
  • 11) Make sure the dryer is plugged into an outlet suitable for that appliance.

  • 12) Ensure your dryer has been installed by a professional.

The technician arrived promptly at 7:30 and was very courteous and careful. He explained all that he would be doing, made sure to answer all my questions, and kept me notified of his progress. Our dryer vent is very difficult, but he worked for almost 2 hours to get it done right. He was super conscientious and really did a thorough job throughout the house.

We had not cleaned our air ducts in some time, so there was extra work to be done to get them clean. They worked with energy and efficiency to get a superior job done. The two men worked as a great team – each humming along on his share of the work, and also in constant communication with each other. Their invoice matched their quote.

Everything went great. The two technicians who came out explained everything, showed me some tips, and were very professional and efficient. My wife and I were moving into an old house with our new baby, and we wanted to clean out the system (not sure that had ever been done before). The Indoor Air guys did a great job, and left the house feeling and smelling much better.

When I called the owner she got back to me right away and was able to schedule a fairly quick time slot. They arrived right on time and the gentleman was very professional and very clean and thorough. They are just the best long-term due to quality of work and long time standing in community.

First time ever having the air ducts cleaned in my 53 year old Schaumburg. I have a dog and a cat so it was a little overdue! Very happy with the job Indoor Air did. They explained the process thoroughly, pricing was aggressive, and the worker did a great job. Nice to be able to run the air now and not have dust flying around! Highly recommended
