Keeping your dryer vent clean is vital. Between 2010 and 2014, there were close to 16,000 dryer fires in the United States. Many of these fires occurred due to an excess buildup of lint in the dryer vent. Just as important as keeping the vent clean, though, is choosing the right dryer vent cleaning service.

Between our SnugDryer dryer vent system and our LintEater dryer vent cleaning kit, at HY-C, we know dryer venting. And while we don’t clean vents ourselves, we do know what to look for in a vent cleaning professional.

In this guide, we’re going to cover some of the best dryer vent cleaning companies in San Diego, California. We’ll provide ratings, prices (where we can), the areas each company serves, and additional services each company offers.

By the time you’re finished here, you’ll have all the information you need to find the right dryer vent cleaning service for your home in the San Diego area.

Note that the companies here are listed in no particular order.

Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego

Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego offer a unique level of service. The company doesn’t just clean dryer vents — their service package includes disassembling your dryer and cleaning it inside, too. “After all,” says their website, “the flame and heating element of the dryer [are] located inside the dryer.”

And that’s true — dryer fires often start inside the dryer itself. The fact that Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego go the extra mile to clean the dryer’s interior arguably results in the safest, most efficient cleaning results.

The company also inspects gas lines for leaks and proper mounting, performs dryer repair and maintenance, and offers before-and-after pictures of their vent cleaning work. They can clean one appliance or take on larger projects like multi-family units, apartments, and high-rise buildings.

On their website, Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego offer an estimate of $180 to $200 for their vent cleaning services (though this figure could rise or fall depending on your situation).

Aside from San Diego, the company operates in Del Mar, La Jolla, Solana Beach, Poway, Coronado, and other locations.

Monster Steamer & Air Duct Cleaning

Created in 2010, Monster Steamer offers a variety of services. They clean carpets, upholstery, tile and grout, they offer pressure washing, and they repair water damage. When it comes to their dryer vent cleaning, Monster outlines a detailed four-step process:

  1. Pre-inspection: they begin by checking the levels of dirt and lint in your dryer vent
  2. Agitation: they use a motorized brush to loosen lint and other vent debris
  3. Vacuuming: they run a high-suction vacuum to remove debris, dirt, and lint
  4. Cleanup: they thoroughly clean the areas around the ends of your dryer vent

The company lists a price of $225 on their site for dryer vent cleaning. They list open, transparent pricing for their other services as well, including carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, mattress cleaning, and more.

Monster also offers a 10% discount for booking online (subject to service minimums), and a 10% veteran discount. (Note that customers cannot combine deals and discounts.)

And if they determine that your system does not need cleaning, they won’t charge you for their time.

Regarding the cleaning itself, Sky Clean Air cleans from the dryer to the termination point of the vent. The company guarantees strong air and appropriate heat distribution post-cleaning. Their technicians will even leave you with day-to-day maintenance tips when they’re finished.

In addition to dryer vent cleaning, Sky Clean Air offers attic and crawl space cleaning, HVAC installation and repairs, electrostatic filters, HVAC UV cleanser systems, and air duct cleaning.

Which Dryer Vent Cleaning Service Should You Choose?

There you have it: four reputable, highly-reviewed dryer vent cleaning services in the San Diego area. But which one should you choose to service your dryer vent?

The answer really depends on what you’re looking for. If you prefer to know pricing ahead of time, Dryer Vent Professionals of San Diego and Monster Steamer & Air Duct Cleaning are your best bet.

If you need HVAC or carpet cleaning, base your decision on the additional services each company offers. Sometimes, the choice simply comes down to who operates in your area.

Either way, one of the simplest, most effective things you can do to ensure your dryer vents stay clean after service is to add a dryer vent cover to the end of your vent system. And our dryer vent cover guide outlines everything you need to know to choose the right one.
