      Chimney and Dryer Vent Cleaning / Sweeping

      Chimney and Dryer Vent Cleaning / Sweeping

      Keeping your home safe is of importance to us! Regular cleanings are a crucial part of this.

      Chimneys are a wonderful source of warmth, and they emit that traditional homey feeling. They also serve as a reliable backup heating source. In order to ensure their safety and readiness for use year-round, you must keep on top of both chimney and dryer vent cleanings. 

      The Chimney Scientists clean wood-burning fireplaces, oil furnaces, gas appliances, and more. We utilize ChimScan professional cameras and other high-end technologies, such as drones, to undertake both an external and internal inspection of your chimney. This is to ensure our team has done an absolutely thorough job, and we will then share the photos with you afterward.

      To learn more about the ins and outs of chimney sweeping and vent dryer cleaning, please look below!

      Chimney Sweeping

      Without proper chimney maintenance, fireplaces and woodstoves are likely to be dangerous because they can either cause fires or release toxic gases into your living area. Likewise, when tar and soot from wood and fuel-burning build up in your chimney, they must be removed. 

      In turn, a regular chimney sweeping, or cleaning, in your home, apartment complex, or condo will help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as unintended house and chimney fires. 

      While more chimney cleaning products appear on the market every year, there is no real replacement for a quality, professional chimney sweeping. We highly recommend that every household have a chimney cleaning from a certified chimney specialist. 

      Our highly trained, experienced, and CSIA-certified technicians can expertly sweep your chimney, addressing any issues that are found and leaving your fireplace system ready to use for the rest of the year! 

      Dryer Vent Cleaning

      Over time, lint will stick to your dryer vent and ducts, causing a restricted airflow. Lint-clogged vents and ducts can be extremely hazardous and are one of the leading causes of dryer fires. 

      This is because lint is extremely flammable. Once the dryer gets hot enough, it can ignite the lint and cause a fire. Clogged vents and ducts also require the dryer to work harder, therefore using more electricity and wasting money. 

      Dryer vent and duct cleaning reduce the risk of dryer fires, saving lives! Beyond that, it also reduces the consumption of electricity, saving you money.
