Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning is recommended by local Fire Marshals Office, FEMA, CSIA and fire departments to be performed at least once a year. Reason: Lint collects past the lint trap in the vent pipe increasing drying time and adding risk of a catastrophic event. After the dryer vent has been cleaned correctly, you should notice a difference in drying time (especially if the dryer vent was clogged before cleaning).
Chimney fires happen more often than you would think! A chimney fire can do huge amounts of damage to a structure. Everything from a prefabricated fireplace to a standard fireplace needs to have regular maintenance. Chimney sweeping of the entire system includes: Firebox, Throat, Smoke Chamber, and Flue. This service is recommended once a year. “Think Safety”
