Did you know we also service your venting systems? We are a proud provider of professional dryer vent cleaning, air duct cleaning services, and air duct repair services. For our air duct repair service, we use Aeroseal, the highest quality duct sealing solution on the market. We would like to tell you more about our venting services and why they are so important.


According to the US Fire Administration (USFA), there are reports of 2,900 clothes dryer fires each year. These fires have caused not only deaths and injuries, but they also have caused millions of dollars in property damages. And a great majority of these fires is a result of failure to clean your dryer’s venting system.

At Atlas Chimney, all of our dryer vent technicians are Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) trained and certified. They have the knowledge and skills to clean your vent properly removing all lint and dirt to reduce fire hazard. You will then notice your dryer working more efficiently, which prolongs its life while also decreases your utility bills.


Did you know there are lots of dust, dirt, and debris inside your air duct system, and that dirt-filled air is being recirculated in your home every time you use your HVAC system. If any members of your household suffer from allergies, asthma, or respiratory issues, then we strongly recommend getting your air duct professionally cleaned by us.

When our experienced professionals are on the job, they will inspect your system to check for any tears or leaks in the ducts, as this can greatly increase your heating and cooling costs. If we find any problems, we can repair your air ducts with Aeroseal, a revolutionary product that seals any type of leaks in your system.

Is It Time for a Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning?

When you own a home, you are responsible for ensuring that there are no safety hazards present, and in order to do that, you must follow a regular maintenance routine. Part of that routine includes scheduling certified professionals to take care of some of the tasks. Atlas Chimney is proud to be able to help homeowners in the Austin area prevent accidental fires and other dangers with our professional services. Not only do we provide annual chimney sweepings and inspections, but we also clean dryer vent systems. You may not realize that your dryer vent should be professionally cleaned every year, but statistics have proven that clogged dryer vents are responsible for the majority of the thousands of clothes dryer fires that happen each year in the United States. We would like to tell you more about why it is so important to schedule an appointment for an annual professional dryer vent cleaning.

Prevent Accidential Fires

In 2012, the US Fire Administration (USFA) released a report that stated approximately 2,900 residential fires are caused by clothes dryers each year, and these fires result in five deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property losses. Most of these fires are caused by dirty dryer vents, which is why it is so crucial to have your vent professionally cleaned every year. Your dryer produces a lot of lint with each load of clothes, and some of that lint ends up trapped inside the vent. Over time, the accumulation of lint can get large enough to clog the vent, which makes your dryer overheat. Since lint is so flammable, the high temperatures can easily ignite it and lead to an accidental fire. Atlas Chimney makes sure to remove every bit of lint to ensure your dryer vent is not a fire hazard.

Prolong the Life of Your Dryer

Overheating is rough on this appliance and its components and can cause them to wear out and break down prematurely. Clothes dryer repairs can be very expensive. The heating element is one of the parts that can have problems, and sometimes it may be more economical to replace the entire appliance than to repair that particular part. After a professional dryer vent cleaning from Atlas Chimney, your dryer will work more efficiently and keep it running for years without breaking down.

Decreases Your Monthly Utility Bills

One of the signs that your dryer vent is clogged is when your clothes are still damp after a complete drying cycle. Having to run your dryer twice as long to dry one load of clothes can make your utility bills go up every month. Not only will your clothes dry more quickly, but you should also notice a decrease in these bills after Atlas Chimney has cleaned the dryer vent.

Avoid an accidental dryer fire from occurring in your home. Contact us at Atlas Chimney today to schedule an appointment for our professional dryer vent cleaning.
