Although they may not wear top hats as the company's snappy logo suggests, Bay Area Chimney's team of expert technicians don blue uniforms as they clear out dirty chimneys. When they aren't cleaning chimneys or taking part in continuous fire-safety education courses, Bay Area Chimney's staffers free rain gutters from debris, remove lint and dust from ducts and vents, and repair fire escapes.
Super Sweeps’ team of chimney sweeps clears out more than chimneys, transferring their skills to stoves as well as dryer vents. They also install stainless-steel caps and can repair crowns and chimney flashing, or waterproof household flues. Larger jobs, such as back-wall replacements for prefabricated fireplaces, can also be tackled after consultations and thorough inspections.
Mister Chimney’s modern-day chimney sweeps aren’t just creating cleaner fireplaces with their arsenal of poles, brushes, and scrapers—they’re saving lives. Citing a 2006 report by the Department of Homeland Security, Mister Chimney reports that 73% of heating fires and 25% of residential blazes come from a buildup of creosote, a flammable tar formation formed from billowing smoke and smoldering resentment of the furnace. To augment its work on chimneys and wood stoves, to which its workers bring 25 years of experience, the company offers supplementary services that include repairs, construction, waterproofing, and vent cleaning.
The seasoned chimney sweeps at Chimney Masters have been clearing pipes and making fireplaces heat home more efficiently for nearly a decade. The team aware of the uniqueness that each fireplace possesses, teach customers how to properly and safely use their chimney.
This knowledge reflects the care and thoroughness that goes into Chimney Masters' services. Not only does he clear away soot, debris, and creosote from flues, fireplaces, and chimneys, he also keeps home safe and ventilated by addressing situations and doling out advice—such as burning a certain type of wood—that can keep homes safe from fire hazards.
