Live In New York’s Hudson Valley? We’re Your Expert Chimney Sweeps!
Your chimney should be professionally cleaned once a year. This is a recommendation agreed upon by nearly every major chimney and fire safety organization in the United States and around the world. Primarily, a sweep’s job is to remove all the creosote that’s accumulated and begun to line the inside of your chimney. This highly-flammable byproduct can create numerous problems if left to build up.
Your sweep will also check for blockages that could lead to backdrafting, loss of efficiency, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a chimney fire. He or she will ensure that every part of your chimney is operating as it should.
