This service includes the sweeping of the chimney shaft, brushing, and vacuuming of the smoke chamber, damper, and firebox, and a visual evaluation of the firebox and shaft interior. Oral reports are available as well.
Chimneys with a damaged or missing liner can allow heat to move quickly into adjacent woodwork. Clay flue tiles or stainless steel may be used to line masonry chimneys. Factory-built chimneys must be relined with a factory-approved metal chimney system.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Lint collects in clothes dryer vents, and is a major cause of slow drying time. In cases of severe blockage, a dryer motor can overheat or the lint may catch fire. A thorough cleaning with a rotating brush will clean through right angles and remove trapped lint.
Spark Arrestors & Caps
A chimney cap will stop most rainwater from entering your chimney, and spark arrestors are a minimum fire safety requirement. They consist of a half-inch mesh screen, and are present in the design of most caps. Special air-cooled caps are needed for factory-built chimneys. Cost varies with size, and depends on the type of system.
