Scott Stein is a dreamer - both literally and figuratively.
"I've had so many things come to me in dreams," says Stein, who, after many
difficult years – which includes growing up in a broken home, separated from siblings and enduring abuse at home and at school where he constantly was involved in fights – is living the dream of loving his family, sharing his faith and owning his own business.
Scott joined the Army and later became an EMT and electrician's assistant. Even though he was married and had a daughter, he still lived in the shadow of abuse and residual pain from his early years.
"Back then there was no professional help for dealing with trauma. It was just the 'suck it up' mentality," Stein says. Bottling up his emotions caused him to repeatedly make the same mistakes - especially where relationships and career choices were concerned.
After divorcing, he over ate to self-soothe. When his weight became dangerously high, he opted for gastric bypass surgery. When he could no longer numb his pain with food, he turned to alcohol.
Alcohol lead to divorce, jail and homelessness.
"I hit rock bottom and lost everything," says Stein, who ultimately found a job through a friend. He also began attending an addiction program called Celebrate Recovery. Even though he was going through the right motions, his heart wasn't syncing up with his head and he continued to spiral.
However, as Scott got in touch with his spiritual side, he grew a conscious.
"I suddenly cared about the proper way to treat people," Stein says. He and Erika began repairing their relationship, and in August 2016, Stein established his own business - Safe Dryer Vent Solutions.
"My goal is to use my skills, talents, faith and integrity to enrich the Central Indiana community," says Stein, who is now a male ministry leader for Lyndhurst Baptist Church and board member at his church, Avon Light and Life.
Stein insists that his journey was not easy or miraculous. "It's not like I had a dream, poured the vodka down the drain and everything turned magically great," Stein says. "Even today there is still healing to be done, but I've learned to communicate and trust God."
As that healing continues - Scott decided to use the things he learned and apply them to his business - including the emphasis on Integrity, Respect, Information, Safety and Honesty (the letters spell IRISH - but emphasise the core principle of "Service with Integrity."
Getting dryer vents cleaned regularly is the number one way a homeowner can help prevent a house fire. Signs that it's time clean the dryer vent is if a) it's taking more than one cycle for clothes to fully dry, b) you see bird feathers across your vent, c) the top or side of your dryer is super hot to the touch, d) your dryer has moisture on the inside of the door, or e) your laundry room gets really hot and/or dusty.
Not only does Stein offer a free quote and inspection, but he also offers group
discounts to townhome owners as well as home owners associations.
Stein, who also replaces bathroom vent and bathroom vent motors, notes that the most common issue he sees is vent covers that have multiple doors on them.
"They're made out of plastic so when they freeze, they expand, then shrink. They also have a grid behind them that will catch lint and cause the dryer vent to back up," says Stein, who recommends installing a pest proof vent.
Stein appreciates his customers just as he appreciates his second chance at life.
Dedicated to helping those in need, Stein is eager to serve Hendricks County.
