How to Eliminate Damp Clothes or Mold Smell:

First try cleaning inside your dryer drum with a solution of warm water and detergent to remove any mildew or mold buildup. Afterward, schedule an appointment for Dryer Vent Wizard services to ensure you don’t have any underlying issues with your dryer system.

  • Dryer Vent Cleaning

    A load of laundry contains more than a half gallon of water. When the dryer vent is clogged with debris, lint, and other obstructions, airflow is restricted, preventing that moisture from escaping and keeping clothes from drying properly. This can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth, potentially leading to health hazards and unpleasant odors. Dryer vent cleaning improves the efficiency of your dryer vent system and reduces any dryer vent mold issues.

  • Vent Line Sanitizing

    Our vent line sanitization service eliminates mold, mildew, and bacteria from the dryer vent system. Over time, the moisture and lint buildup can allow microbial growth, leading to musty odors and potential health hazards. We use specialized cleaning agents and processes to sanitize the vent line and eliminate unpleasant mold odors.

  • Lint Screen and Trap Cleaning

    Cleaning the lint screen and trap is crucial for combating damp clothing and moldy smells. Regularly cleaning these dryer parts reduces obstructions and promotes airflow to reduce odors and ensure clothes fully dry in a single cycle. Addressing the root cause of the mold smells will reduce the likelihood of them returning.
