Pros

  • Open daily
  • COR certified

Cons

  • Some reports on subpar performance
  • Few complaints about post-service messes

We’re glad to know that besides residential areas, Breathe Clean Alberta has also served offices and industrial facilities. Their expertise in the industry is shown as they have been trusted to clean more extensive areas.

They are Certificate of Recognition (COR) certified. This is great for customers because they have passed stringent health and safety standards.

While they don’t do standard rates, you can fill up their contact form or opt for their free residential and commercial quotes via phone.

Their equipment includes a multi-nozzle vacuum and a mechanical brush to remove any lint manually. They will also remove any bird’s nests they find, which we appreciate because some companies charge for this separately.

We like that they include a step-by-step guide on how they clean dryer vents. Customers will at least be given a rough idea of what will happen.

We’ve heard past customers mention their thoroughness. The team reportedly explains the steps before they started the cleaning process, which helps set and manage expectations.

We did hear a couple of complaints about the staff leaving a big mess after a job, as well as reports of subpar cleaning. We hope that they can improve their quality control, as clients will be looking at their onsite performance to decide if they’ll get them again in the future.

Pros

  • Open daily
  • Multi-unit cleaning

Cons

  • No same-day service
  • Smaller team compared to others on our list

Dryer Vent Wizard is a locally owned and operated dryer vent cleaning service. They opened in 2004, and since then, they have grown to multiple franchises across Canada and the United States.

They do commercial and multi-unit cleaning. This is good to know for customers who live in apartments or condominiums.

Their process for multi-units is to clean the vents from the outside without the need to enter the home. They then leave a note to inform the residents that the vents have been cleaned.

We’re also impressed that they return when the resident is available to inspect the dryer inside the home for no extra charge. We think customers can have a satisfying experience knowing that both the exterior and interior have been examined.

An online contact form is available to schedule an appointment with them and via phone.

Aside from cleaning, they also do dryer vent installation, rerouting, and repair. We like this additional service that other cleaning companies don’t offer.

We’d like to add that they are a member of the Neighbourly Done Right Promise. It’s a community of home service brands that commit to providing excellent service. 

Multiple customers have praised their service and professionalism. Customers mentioned that they were transparent with the steps involved and had great workmanship.

We’re impressed with Dryer Vent Wizard, although compared to others on our list, they have a relatively small team. But if you don’t need same-day service, they can be one of your choices for a dryer vent cleaning service.

Pros

  • COR certified
  • 30-day service warranty

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays
  • Waste handling fee
  • Some issues on punctuality

Alberta Home Services is Calgary-owned and has been in the business since 1986. Over the years they have grown, serving residential and commercial clientele.

They are COR certified and have been awarded by the Consumer Choice Award in 2022. We’re quite impressed by their recognition, which is a testament to the calibre of their service.

Aside from dryer vent cleaning, they offer many other services like furnace and chimney cleaning. If there are other services needed, they can be scheduled for multiple jobs.

For their duct cleaning package, they charge $59+GST with additional cost per accessible dryer vent. We love how they included a starting price online so customers can quickly gauge how much they’ll need to shell out.

However, the minimum service call for rooftop dryers or hard-to-reach ones will be $119+GST.  Of course, this will depend on the length, location, and other factors.

We’re glad that they also offer a 30-day warranty service. The warranty gives their customers confidence in the quality of service they provide.

Aside from the warranty, they also offer packages. If there are multiple places to clean in your home, availing of these packages can reduce costs.

Their cleaning system is truck-mounted, which means that they can more effectively clean a wider area. Their technicians are trained to clean commercial and non-commercial buildings.

While all these seem great, we do note that they have a waste handling fee. Some customers may not like this because other companies offer this for free.

There have also been customer complaints about punctuality and higher prices. A customer said that he was charged an after-hours fee despite the cleaners’ fault for coming in late.

Pros

  • IICRC-certified
  • Eco-friendly
  • Over 30 years of experience

Cons

  • Doesn’t service commercial buildings
  • Some complaints about subpar service

Big Ben has been in the cleaning service since 1987. With more than 30 years in the business, customers can feel confident about their expertise.

We’re also happy to know that their staff is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This means they’ve met the proper cleaning standards to ensure service quality.

What first got our attention is their environmentally-friendly service. They only use products that don’t harm the environment.

They are also a paperless company. So, they provide all their invoices electronically.

They serve residential homes and low- to mid-rise condominiums. For services related to commercial buildings, clients might have to look elsewhere. 

They do offer a free quote, but we’d still like to see a starting price online. We think when deciding to hire a dryer vent cleaning service, average costs are a huge deciding factor.

We love how many customers have praised their professionalism and quality of service. 

Their staff apparently were very knowledgeable by providing additional maintenance information.

There were a few complaints about subpar service. But the customers were properly contacted and the staff and manager have apologised, which shows that they value accountability.

Overall, we love their service. Their certification and years of service give customers the trust needed to hire them.

Pros

  • 30 years in the service
  • Various payment methods available
  • Online discounts

Cons

  • Expensive minimum service call
  • Residential online discount only

Revive Furnace Cleaning has been in the industry for over 30 years, which tells us that they’ve been doing something right all this time.

It’s good to know that they are open for service daily. Those who only have weekends off can rest knowing that they can hire them during their days off.

Their service vehicle is a custom-built industrial strength unit. This can clean residential, commercial, and industrial places.

As for payment methods, they have VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and e-transfers. We like that they offer these for convenience.

We’d like to mention that they have a minimum service call of $119. For some customers, this price tag may be too steep because dryer vent cost can go higher depending on the length. 

Although they have a furnace and duct cleaning package, we’d like to see a dryer vent cleaning package in the future. On the bright side, they do offer a booking discount online – at least for residential clients.

Multiple customers have spoken to us about their thorough cleaning and proper service walkthrough.

So, if you’re looking to get the value for your money, Revive Cleaning may be an option for you. Their professionalism and quick service have been highly praised.
