Chimney Sweeping in Bergen County
Chimney sweeping is one of the most important and most overlooked aspects of home maintenance and safety. But why is it so important? Here are just a few reasons why a chimney sweep is so important and so crucial to the safety and well-being of your family and your home. Our technicians here at Oosting are certified and will treat your home like their own.
A Certified Chimney Sweep:
- Helps keep your chimney system and appliance clean and free of creosote buildup, damage, and decay. A neglected chimney system and appliance will end up caked with creosote, which is a serious fire hazard and can do serious damage to the chimney system. Regular cleanings can keep creosote buildup to a minimum and significantly enhance the efficiency and longevity of the entire system.
- Helps keep animals and flammable nesting materials out of your chimney and home. Animals and their feces, food, and nesting materials can set up shop in your chimney system, which can lead to everything from noise and odor problems to fire and health hazards. But regular chimney sweeping can allow us to not only remove these threats, but to identify how they are making their way into your system, and put a stop to it.
- Allows technicians to identify problems early on. Regular inspections and sweepings help us identify weak areas within the chimney system, as well as damage or decay (and its source). Many times, we are able to locate these problems before significant damage is done if inspections and sweepings are performed regularly.
- Helps prevent home air pollution and carbon monoxide problems. When your chimney system is dirty and clogged, or when there’s a problem with drafting or other issues, your inside air quality can be greatly compromised. That means your family can be exposed to smoke, carbon monoxide and other dangerous particles. By scheduling regular sweepings, you can keep your system clean and effectively moving byproducts and smoke up and out of the home.
