Northeastern Chimney employs highly trained service technicians to clean chimneys in and around South Windsor, CT. Our certified chimney sweeps have the tools and the training to effectively remove dangerous creosote from a chimney and prevent the possibility of a chimney fire. Creosote is highly flammable and is responsible for the majority of chimney fires in the U.S. each year.
Chimney sweep services also include removing debris from chimneys. It doesn’t take long for leaves, twigs, animal nests and other obstructions to build up inside a chimney. When this happens, the fireplace can’t vent properly, and the result can be carbon monoxide backing up into the house.
Another important component of having your chimney serviced is inspection. Our crews know what to look for inside and outside a chimney. Cracked bricks and mortar, cracks in the crown, leaks inside the chimney and more can lead to serious damage. Fortunately, we can fix any problem we find and replace any components as necessary.
