Before and After Pictures from Lewes

The clothes dryer in your house uses a lot of energy, more than any other appliance. That's why it's crucial to make sure it works really well. Dryers remove wetness from your clothes by pushing the damp air outside through a special duct tube. So, it's essential to clean that tube regularly, especially if it's a long tube, to keep your dryer running efficiently. Over time that saves a homeowner a tremendous amount of money.


Dryer ducts have a special one-way flap where the duct exits the house, to keep vermin and insects from entering your home through the ductwork. The flap on this duct had become frozen shut by the dirt and lint. Once the Lawson Home Services technician cleaned the ducts and fixed the flap this dryer was working like a champ

Sometimes the flaps on your dryer vent get dirty and don't close properly.  This allows all kinds of dirt and debris to get inside the dryer ductwork, including things brought in by vermin seeking a nice warm home.  That appears to be the case here, in this Lewes, DE home.  As you can see in the picture, in addition to the lint left behind by the dryer exhaust there are seeds and grass, which indicate mice, rats, or birds have been hanging out in this nice warm shelter.


Lawson Home Service's technician cleaned out the flex-ductwork and flap to improve the amount of airflow and ensure the unwelcome visitors did not return in the future to wreak havoc upon this unsuspecting homeowner.

It happens all the time, "My dryer runs forever and my clothes never really get dry." The numbers in the picture may not make much sense. But look at the "Air velocity before cleaning - At termination with dryer on." The number is ZERO, meaning this Lewes, DE homeowner's dryer vent was clogged COMPLETELY SHUT.

Not only does that run your energy bill sky high, it creates a dangerous fire hazard.  The US Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that clogged dryer vents are responsible for more than 15,000 dryer fires each year.  
Don't be a dryer fire statistic. Call Lawson Home Services today to schedule your dryer duct clean out service.

Radon Testing & Mitigation 

Radon is a naturally occurring invisible & odorless gas that can have a big impact on the air quality of your home. Radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoke. High levels of radon gas are commonly found throughout Delaware & E. Shore Maryland and because radon gas cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted the only way to ensure that you and your family are not affected by this dangerous gas is to have one of our experts visit your home and perform proper testing. Radon testing is the fastest & most effective way to ensure the safety of your family. Depending on the results of the test, Lawson Home Services can offer several radon mitigation solutions that will limit exposure to the gas and also ventilate it away from your home. Our radon mitigation methods are highly successful and we always stand behind our work! To learn more about radon gas mitigation and testing call or click today!

Job Stories From Lewes, DE
Radon Mitigation in Lewes, DE

They used to think radon was not a problem on the Delmarva Peninsula, especially along the coast. But we now know this information is DEADLY WRONG!

Lawson Home Services has conducted a large number of radon testing in coastal homes and found a surprisingly high number had radon concentrations well above the 4.0 pCi/l level threshold, above which the EPA strongly recommends that homeowners take action to reduce these deadly levels of cancer-causing radon gas.
Radon is odorless, tasteless, and has no smell. The only way to detect it is testing. If you value your health, and that of those who live in your home, then you owe it to call Lawson Homes Services to have radon concentration testing done for your home. Don't put it off.

Annual Maintenance in Lewes, DE

Regular check-ups are just as important for your home and they are for you or your car. If there's a problem you want to spot it before it becomes costly and inconvenient. That's why Barbara has Lawson Home Services to inspect her crawlspace, which was previously encapsulated.

Encapsulating a crawlspace is done for several reasons. First, it is to protect the supporting structures from high humidity which would result in the growth of harmful microbes, mold, and rotting of the wood. Second, the crawlspace becomes part of the "conditioned airspace", just like the rooms of the home. This is done by moving the insulation from the crawlspace ceiling to the walls of the foundation and also requires sealing off vents. Next, it is essential to control groundwater. This is done with the installation of a CleanSpace™ liner system which covers the dirt floor, effectively blocking water vapor from entering the crawlspace. A SmartSump sump pump is also installed to pump away and ground water that seeps under the foundation walls. And finally, the humidity is fine tuned with a SaniDry™ dehumidifier.

Once installed you should have the system checked annually to make certain all the components remain intact and are functioning optimally. Lawson's technician will take apart the sump system, clean it as needed, reassemble it, and finally test run it to be certain everything is A-0k. He will also service the dehumidifier, change/clean filters, and test run it as well. An overall inspection will be conducted to make sure the liner has not been damaged by an intruder, animal, or a careless worker. The technician keeps a close eye out for signs of any problems of which the homeowner should be made aware, for example, leaky plumbing, or water from another source. If all looks well he will seal up the crawlspace, fill out the report, discuss and explain any problems found during the inspection with the homeowner, and then be on his merry way.   

So if you have a home with an encapsulated crawlspace, regardless of what company did the work, Laswon Home Services can inspect and service it. We are reliable, efficient, and affordable. We also can help solve any home comfort issue such as rooms that are hard to heat and cool and we can improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC system with our Platinum Duct Cleaning service. So why now call us today and find out how we can make your home more comfortable, improve indoor air quality, and get your energy bills as low as they can possibly be.

Annual Maintenance in Lewes, DE

Lawson Home Services had done quite a bit of work in the past to this Lewes, DE home and was returning for the recommended annual maintenance of the measures installed. In this case there was an inspection of the CleanSpace crawlspace liner and insulation, cleaning of the filter and drain hoses and a test run of the SaniDry™ dehumidification equipment, and clean out and test run of the SmartSump™ system. Humidity levels of the indoor and outdoor air, and the humidity content of the wood structural members in the crawlspace  were checked to be sure everything was functioning as expected. Everything was found to be in excellent condition and all equipment running perfectly. 

Hopefully all will be well until Dr. Energy Saver returns to check on things next year.

Radon at Dangerous levels in Lewes, DE home

Though radon is higher in some areas than others, it can show ups at dangerous levels in areas not typically associated with radon. The EPA estimates that one in every fifteen American homes has elevated levels of radon of 4.0 pCi/l or higher. For comparison, the risk for lung cancer at 4.0 pCi/l  is comparable to smoking half a pack of cigarettes per day. 

Studies indicate that exposure to radon gas is responsible for at least 21,000 of the total 127,000 cases of lung cancer that occur in America each year. That's why those wanting to protect the health of individuals who visit or reside inside their homes hire professionals trained in radon testing to test their homes and assess their risk.

The EPA recommends that a home be fixed if its radon level is 4.0 pCi/l or higher. And, because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, you should consider fixing your home even if your tested radon levels are under 4.0 pCi/l but over 2.0 pCi/l.  

This homeowner conducted a self-home test. She was likely quite alarmed to find out that the radon levels in her Lewes, DE home were 2 ½ times higher than the EPA's recommended threshold for taking action to reduce radon gas.

Lawson Home Services is one of the few companies in the State of Delaware that offers both radon testing and mitigation. Call us today, to schedule a radon test at your home. You owe it to yourself and you loved ones.

Annual SaniDry Dehumidifier Service in Lewes, DE

Coastal is wonderful but owning a seaside home is not without problems. High relative humidity levels outside cause can cause condensation and moisture inside the home, resulting in poor air quality due to the grown of mold and bacteria, but can also cause highly expensive damage to the structure of the home when the wooden supporting structures begin to rot. That's why the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers recommend maintaining an indoor relative humidity level below 55%


Back in 2017, Lawson Home Services, a Dr. Energy Saver Contractor, installed a Sedona™ SaniDry dehumidifier in the home of this sensible Lewes, DE resident. He was very happy with the results and gave us a five-star rating for each of the questions on the Customer Satisfaction Survey he returned to us. We've been returning ever since to service his dehumidifier.


As you can see in the pictures, the SaniDry dehumidifier is working perfectly to maintain the recommended relative humidity levels below 55% inside the home. We can also see the moisture content of the wood, as measured by the hygrometer as being an ideal 11.8%, and well below the 20% threshold above which fungal growth begins to contribute to the rotting of structural timbers.

Annual Maintenance in Lewes, DE

Crawl spaces are typically outfitted with a sump pump system to discharge any water that may seep underneath the home.  As a result the sump pumps are subjected to water that has a lot muddy water.  Minerals that are dissolved in the water become encrusted on the pump and its moving parts. When this occurs the floats, which turn the sump pump on when water is present, may fail to operate, allowing the crawlspace to become a swimming pool. Not only will this invite all kinds of unwanted vermin and pests, but may cause serious damage to expensive mechanical equipment situated in the crawlspace, such as heating and air conditioning systems.


Who wants to run a spa for rats, bugs, and nasty microbes in the crawlspace beneath their home? It is critical to have crawlspaces inspected annually, to discover issues and fix them before they bloom in major problems that will put a big dent in your bank account. 


Call Lawson Home Services to set up an annual maintenance and service for your home crawlspace.

Duct Cleaning in Lewes, DE

This Lewes, DE homeowner had an issue with seasonal allergens and wanted to see if Lawson Home Services could do something to improve the air quality in his home.  An inspection revealed a great amount of dust and debris had accumulated in the heating and air conditioning ductwork. 


Grimy ductwork is like a garden where all sorts of fungi and nasty microbes can grow.  The dust and microbes are then blown throughout the home whenever the heating or air conditioning system is running. The best solution in this case is Lawson's Platinum Duct Cleaning service which leaves the ductwork looking like it did the day it was installed (maybe even better).


In addition we recommended installing a BreatheEZ™ UVC light. UV light, a form of radiation that damages the DNA of bacteria and viruses, is a safe and effective way to kill microbes.

Flooding and Mold Growth Found in Lewes, DE Crawl Space

A dry crawl space is one of the most beneficial aspects a home could have.  Yet when Lewes, DE homeowners Michele and Edward B. found that their crawl space was in less than ideal condition, they immediately asked around their friends and family for a waterproofing company. They were soon referred to Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva by a family friend, who they contacted shortly after.


After being contacted, Delmarva immediately sent out a representative to service the Lewes, DE couple.  The couple was met by crawl space remediation specialist Michael Alicknavitch, who decided to take a look at their crawl space.  After a quick evaluation, Michael determined that outside moisture was making its way into the crawl space, creating ideal conditions for mold growth and excess flooding.  Luckily for the couple Michael knew exactly how to solve the problem.  To prevent future flooding incidents, Michael recommended waterproofing products such as a CleanSpace encapsulation system, CleanSpace drainage matting, Everlast crawl space access door and a condensation pump.  The combination of these products will keep outside moisture from getting inside the crawl space, ensuring it will remain dry.  To eliminate the mold problem, Michael proposed MoldX to the affected areas and then installing a SaniDry CX dehumidification system to keep the crawl space dry.  


With the recommendations agreed upon, Michael called in Delmarva’s Production Team One to complete the installation and remediation process.  The Lewes, DE couple no longer has to worry about water affecting their crawl space and can rest easy at night knowing the professionals at Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva have given their crawl space long lasting solutions.

Damaged Ducts Saved and Repaired in Lewes, DE Home

Having work done at the same time, Lewes, DE homeowner Elliott P.’s contractor told him that the ductwork had become separated and needed repair.  Wanting an immediate fix, Elliot contacted Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva to come out and fix his ducts.


That same day, Elliott was met by Delmarva representative Michael Alicknavitch to look at his problem and diagnose a solution.  After looking at the damaged ductwork, Michael noticed that one of the ducts had been crushed and needed immediate attention.  To service the ducts, Michael recommended new ducts be ordered and installed and fitted with insulation to ensure the best results for Elliott’s home.  


Once the ducts had come in, Michael and Delmarva’s Production Team One met with Elliott at his home to install the ducts.  Never underestimate the severity of a situation! With the newly installed duct system, Elliott's home is now more efficient and will continue to be in the oncoming years!
