Do you use a camera to inspect the cleaning process?

Absolutely. Caliber staff attempt to take BEFORE and AFTER pictures of the cleaning process. This will ensure that everything has been cleaned properly and gains Client Confidence. We try our best to take good before and after photos, but sometimes they are difficult to see. Be sure to ask to see the photos.

Why sanitize? Is it SAFE?

Sanitizing will significantly reduce dust mites, allergens, mold spores and many other contaminants that circulate throughout the ductwork.

The disinfectant is a plant-based environmentally friendly product with only a mild odor.

Why clean my dryer vent? Can a dirty dryer vent be a fire hazard?

Clothes dryers account for almost 16,000 fires annually in North America, resulting in numerous deaths and injuries.

Lint build-up in the dryer vent creates a potential fire hazard and reduces the overall efficiency of the dryer.

Dryer vents should be cleaned once a year to ensure maximum efficiency.
