Tidy & Professional Chimney Sweeping/Cleaning In Ulster, Dutchess & Greene County, NY & The Neighboring Areas
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) urges all homeowners to schedule a chimney sweep on a regular basis. But why is this service so important?
When soot and the flammable deposit known as creosote (a result of incomplete combustion) build up inside of the chimney system, the fire in your fireplace can spread to the chimney.
The problem is, not only can a chimney fire cause damage to the chimney, but it can also spread to the rest of the home with terrible consequences.
Chimney fires account for massive amounts of property loss and damage, and are serious threats to the safety and well-being of homeowners and their families. But chimney cleanings go a long way towards preventing these hazards by removing soot, creosote, and any blockages that may lead to fire or other performance or safety issues.
How Is A Chimney Cleaned?
Here at True Ventilation, we use specialized tools, techniques, and products to get every last bit of soot and creosote out of the chimney and fireplace system. We lay down drop cloths, use powerful vacuums to contain any mess, and our brushes, rods, and cleaners ensure a job well done. We even have ways of removing dangerous stage 3 creosote, which is the toughest creosote of all.
And don’t worry: all the products and tools we use are safe for your family and your home.
Do I Need To Schedule A Chimney Sweeping AND A Chimney Inspection?
When you call on True Ventilation for your annual sweeping, we’ll include a level I chimney inspection as part of the service. This will allow us to look for any potential problems and inform you of them. Level II and III inspections are also available, and can be done at the same time as your chimney sweeping service.
If you’re not sure whether or not you need to schedule a chimney cleaning, starting with an inspection is a great idea. When we perform an inspection, we’ll look up into your fireplace and chimney, and let you know if there’s enough buildup to warrant a chimney cleaning. And if it’s time, we’ll take care of it for you.
