A clogged clothes dryer vent will make your machine work harder and dry laundry less efficiently. It can also be the cause of a major house fire, which we hear about in El Cajon and surrounding communities every year. Let our crew clean your dryer vent – no matter its size or shape – and restore safety and peak drying efficiency.

Fireplace Repairs, Safety and Efficiency

Fireplaces can become damaged after years of exposure to high heat, flames and corrosive combustion gases.  Breaks in the firebox housing can lead to a carbon monoxide escape as well as a house fire. It is important to ensure that your fireplace is in good working order for the safety of your home. In addition to increasing the safety of your home, fireplace repairs and restorations can also help increase the efficiency of your fireplace.
