There are many downsides to a dirty chimney, including a house filled with smoke and getting blacklisted by Santa Claus for ruining his favorite suit. Deep clean smokestacks with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a dryer-vent cleaning (a $139–$169 value) or a chimney sweep plus a level-one visual inspection (a $149–$179 value) from Mitchel's Chimney & Masonry Specialists Inc.. Prices are based on the customer's location, and this Groupon is valid in DC and Northern Virginia.
Mitchel's scrubs out smokestacks and vents during efficient, professional cleanings. Lint prospectors can blast debris from dryer vents with a high-powered blower and a Pro-Spin cleaning tool, with a whirling disk of soft, bendable arms that tickles vents' blockages into giggle-choked submission. Mitchel's specialists can also expel a chimney's soot colonies using brushes, rods, and high-powered vacuums, finishing up each sweep with a visual inspection to diagnose necessary repairs inside and out. During the process, even-tempered technicians will politely answer customer queries and set tarps in front of fireplaces to keep carpets from getting mussed.
The Chimney Safety Institute of American recommends once-a-year cleanings to free chimneys and vents from flammable soot, lint, and other debris. After cleanings, homeowners can saw wood soundly at night, safe in the knowledge that they've reduced their risk of chimney fires and of lint accumulating in large enough quantities to become sentient beings.
