What Should You Expect When You Get a Chimney Sweep from Duct Clean NYC?
When you select the qualified and experienced chimney sweep crew from Duct Clean NYC, you can rest assured you will get world-class service. We will arrive fully prepared with tools, brushes, flashlights and drop cloths to perform a thorough job and leave no trace of debris in your chimney.
We even have top-of-the-line video equipment that will allow us to visually explore the conditions of your chimney to apply the best services that enhance its function and increase longevity. Video equipment is especially important for taking a better look at the conditions and exploring interior damage to the chimney structure itself.
You will need to move all the furniture away from the area of operations to prevent damage and debris when having your chimney cleaned. If you are able you can move some of the furniture back before our chimney sweepers arrive. Alternatively, if your furniture is extra heavy you can wait until our crew arrives on-site to help with some of the heavy lifting.
In addition to carefully moving the furniture and operating cautiously and professionally, we use drop cloth as well. These large sheets of sturdy fabric ensure that none of the falling debris and fine dust and ash from the chimney is scattered into your upholstery and anywhere else in the work area.
After we are finished, we will apply industry grade cleaning techniques and top-of-the-line vacuum cleaners to ensure that your home is left spotless. For a reliable cleaning service that protects your home and family, call Duct Cleaning NYC at (212) 401-0694.
Chimney Inspections and Maintenance
In addition to regular cleaning, your chimney will need to be inspected thoroughly to ensure that the slightest damage is repaired before it has a chance to deteriorate the entire structure. Your professional team of chimney sweepers will apply their experience and sophisticated equipment to examine your fireplace and chimney as well as the damper, chimney cap, crown, firebox, and masonry.
The signs of damage may be very small and can seem insignificant to the inexperienced. But our years of work in the local area have given our team special insights into these small problems. A crack in the chimney lining can allow fumes to enter the home rather than be directed outwards. Fissures in the cap or masonry of the chimney can allow water to seep inside and lead to expensive damage.
Much of this damage can be addressed by our team of knowledgeable chimney sweepers, but for any problems we cannot handle ourselves, we can describe the solution you will need and where you can find them.
