Thanksgiving is here and about gone… Black Friday and Christmas consume most minds and thoughts for the next 4 weeks. Weather takes a turn for the worse.

I continue to be Onondaga counties only C.S.I.A certified owner operator, and personally perform every inspection from start to finish.

What you can expect when you hire Mrchimneyman to service or sweep / clean your fireplace or woodstove chimney.

When you hire us, you can expect a firm appointment. Most initial service calls take 30-45 minutes to complete.

If we are any more than 15 minutes early or late, we call to confirm your ability to keep the appointment.

We place down clean drop cloths and run a vacuum system that controls the soot and dust, keeping it inside the firebox or woodstove.

We first determine if your system needs sweeping, then proceed with inspection afterwards.  So why is this service call needed?

Woodstoves with proper chimneys or liner systems need sweeping to remove creosote build up so that they operate properly,

If your woodstove does not have a proper chimney or liner system, or if it has other improper installation or clearances to combustibles, we document these findings and discuss with you what it would take to meet manufacturers installation instructions

We dont sweep your masonry fireplace chimney to make it safe, we sweep it so we can properly inspect it with a video device.

Once again, when we find original construction defects, chimney fire damage or man made alterations that do not meet codes and standards, we document and discuss options for repair, and or ways that you can continue to use your fireplace safely.

With Mrchimneyman, you will never be “scared” into needing repairs. I will tell you the real truth about your system.

Use my handy “Get started feature” when you are ready to proceed. I look forward to providing this service for you.

September 30, 2011, Syracuse N.Y. –  While many homeowners are struggling to keep up with regular home maintenance expenses this home heating season, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) shares the reminder that saving money in the short term by delaying routine maintenance may mean additional expense in the long run.

Only a qualified professional, like a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® will be able to identify and resolve structural and maintenance issues before potential carbon monoxide intrusion and chimney fire hazards risk your time, health or money.
