Vermont Master Chimney Sweeps is your neighborhood chimney service and repair provider based out of Weston, serving southern Vermont since 1976. Your chimney is an integral part of your home heating system, and it requires regular inspections and maintenance.
Vermont Master Chimney Sweeps provides an array of chimney services, including chimney cleaning, inspections, relining, chimney caps, services for Class A chimneys, woodstove installation and repairs, and dryer vent cleaning.
There are three levels of chimney inspections. Level One is the most basic inspection, in which your chimney technician will examine all of the readily accessible parts of your chimney and ventilation system to check for damage. Level Two inspections cover everything from a Level One inspection but will also include inspection of accessible areas of the attic, basement, chimney interior, and exterior. Level Two inspections will also include a camera scan of the chimney flue interior. Level Three inspections are the most detailed type of inspection including examining concealed areas of your chimney where hidden hazards or damage are suspected.
Cleaning your chimney removes dangerous creosote, improves draft, and helps eliminate odors. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that chimneys, fireplaces, and vents be inspected at least once a year and cleaned as necessary. “It’s no secret that being a chimney sweep is a pretty dirty job, but we strive to leave your home exactly the way we found it.” Protective sheeting is used around the work area, and a high-powered vacuum helps with dust control.
Liners can be used when flues are already damaged, or create a barrier for gasses and moisture. A stainless steel liner is a great solution to maintain efficient airflow within the chimney and it provides a reliable outlet for combustion gases that are produced as a result of burning.
A chimney cap is a critical part of keeping your chimney and flue in good working condition. It helps in protecting your flue from rain, snow, debris, birds and other animals, and other year-round elements.
If your dryer is requiring more than one cycle to dry your clothes, or it smells hot or musty during or after a cycle, Vermont Master Chimney Sweeps will service your dryer vents. Using the same equipment for chimney sweeps, brushes sweep the inside of the dryer vent while a blower pushes the lint, dust, and fiber out of the vent opening to the outside.
If you can’t remember the last time that you had your chimney inspected or swept, it’s time to give Vermont Master Chimney Sweeps a call. A clean chimney not only improves efficiency, it also reduces the risk of chimney fires and carbon monoxide gasses in your home.
