Most call me a Jack of all trades and I would agree! There’s not much that we come across that I can’t plan around or fix.

I’m a trained chef, have worked in Masonry and also moonlight in security. I’m a pet lover and an all around easy going guy.

Russ & Clare put their trust in me and they are not only my bosses but I consider them my family and great friends! I look forward to treating you the same way they treat me, with respect.

We had our dryer vent and bathroom vent thoroughly cleaned. Clare was extremely fast in providing a quote and scheduling our appointment. Russ was very friendly and provided outstanding service. We highly recommend this team - you won't be disappointed.

Amazing service! So easy to get a quote, book it, and have the service done. Professional, friendly, and thorough. I HIGHLY recommend them - especially if you notice your dryer isn't drying the way it used to...or for the peace of mind of having a clear dryer vent and dryer.
Clif Budden
Seamless service from online quote to finished work & very happy with results. Contacted YYT initially in order to get dryer hoses replaced & the lines cleaned & extremely happy to also find they could also take care of a bird's nest which had started in a range hood vent that was uncapped. Clare quickly responded to my initial questions & Russ showed up to complete the work just two days later. Dryer connections x2 were fully cleared of built up debris, an unsafe dryer hose was replaced & connections secured, & the range hood vent meshed & cleaned completely. Other vents on the property were also inspected. Invoice came in lower than expected as well & payment was an ease. Prompt, professional and honest service, highly recommended !

The whole process from start to end is very professional. I like that don't need to call someone, leave a voicemail and hope they call have gotten quotes and booked services the process has run smoothly and quickly! Russell came in today and did a deep clean on our heat pump (and it was gross) They take pride in their work and it shows! Highly recommend!!

YYT Safe Dryer Vents serviced my dryer venting system with efficiency and professionalism. It is a change to see a business provide exemplary customer service like they did. They provided me a prompt quote, arranged a service date, showed up when they promised, and did a wonderful job at a fair price. They kept me advised throughout the entire process. I will be using YYT Safe Dryer Vents annually to clean and service my venting. Well done.

Russ and Conrad showed up to replace a part of a dryer vent that was kinked. They are very knowledgeable, professional and cleaned up after themselves. Note: the dryer vent was installed by a contractor in November 2021. (Most awful service and workmanship ever witnessed in my entire life) Russ and Conrad remove all the old stuff and reinstall the duct correctly, with minimal cutting of the drywall. You can see they take pride in the services they offer. Pricing is one of the best around for the quality service you are getting. Quality service and pricing is a 5 star rating for me, If I could give 6 stars I would. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone.
