WHAT DOES A PROFESSIONAL
CHIMNEY SWEEP DO?
CLEAN SWEEP CHIMNEY SWEEPS are CSIA Certified and NFI Certified professional chimney sweeps so we clean and sweep chimneys, of course - but do you know about all the other home safety services and fireplace products we offer?
Your chimney is important to your family's safety. Every home visit includes an inspection of all accessible areas. We're looking for problems in areas you may not think about (such as the attic) where clearances may be a problem or where damages may first appear. We're the only local company offering chimney inspections at all 3 levels defined by the NFPA-211 standards. From Level 1 (flashlight and hand tools) to Level 3 (which may include major work to gain access to hidden areas), we provide the level of service needed to provide a thorough inspection.
We take great care to offer a "mess-free" chimney sweeping service. Chimneys are swept to remove residues in the chimney which can block the flue and prevent proper drafting, and to remove flammable deposits which can cause a chimney fire. All chimneys that connect to appliances that burn fuel and are vented to the outdoors need to be inspected annually and swept when needed. You'll barely know we've been there yet you can have the confidence that your fireplace will operate at peak convenience, efficiency and safety.
We help diagnose performance problems with smoky fireplaces. We figure out where those water leaks are coming from and use the latest techniques to repair the damage and prevent future problems.
We line unlined chimneys and we reline chimneys that have suffered damage due to fire, water, improper construction and other types of deterioration and damage. We use the industry's finest stainless steel chimney lining systems, a material suitable for all types of fuel appliance venting.
We install professional grade chimney caps to prevent animals, rain and leaves from getting into your chimney, available in copper or stainless steel, providing free installation of chimney caps in our local service area. We also install top-mount fireplace dampers, a high-efficiency method for keeping heat inside your house while your open fireplace is not in use.
We also sweep furnace flues, helping your oil furnace operate at peak efficiency to save energy dollars and to help assure that dangerous fumes can safely vent to the outdoors.
Clothes slow to dry? This is a sign that your dryer vent needs to be cleaned. Clogged vents on clothes dryers cause more home fires than chimneys do. We also offer expert dryer exhaust cleaning as well as the ability to reinstall the venting system to improve your clothes dry with greatest efficiency and optimum safety. Learn more about dryer vents and why they need annual cleaning and inspection.
We are one of the few specialists in the country to offer historic restoration for fireplaces in older homes. Want to keep a period look but upgrade to a more convenient gas fire? See our Valor gas inserts!
Whether you want a restoration to safely burn wood or a full conversion to gas, we have the products to increase your energy efficiency and the expertise to design and install everything you need.
Whether you need annual maintenance for a newer home or complete renovation for your older home, we're here to help! And Remember...
"If it concerns your fireplace, it concerns us!"
