Great Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Mount Sinai

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of a structure. Your chimney tends to not receive the redress or the concern usually accorded other damaged household systems. Chimneys perform several critical functions and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements. Destructive or deteriorated flue liners of masonry chimneys can become soft, cracked or otherwise broken – such that it/they no longer have the ability to control and contain the serious by-products of combustion.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to haphazardly lined chimneys. A plethora of masonry chimney products (except for real stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and is like a brick chimney and it might also be protected from the effects of water penetration. Quite a bit of masonry materials are porous and may absorb large amounts of water. Installing chimney caps and dampers could protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning experts to your house that can live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair estimate call or text Expressway at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that will prevent some of the most costly problems. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call Mount Sinai’s local roofing experts for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. The job of the chimney cap is to stop rain from entering the flue and to stop pests from building nests in your chimney or using the chimney for a doorway into your residence. In especially windy areas chimneys also can prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers will help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. These blockages could cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the structure.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to critical issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, correct chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation pros are very knowledgeable about the many various types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more leaks than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and degrades at the mortar. It’s such a common complication , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their home in your chimney. Chimneys may block the correct ventilation and even enter your residence, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids will keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace can spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable products. Stray sparks may be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a part of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney might depend on the type of deposits. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the best possible for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. It conforms to any shape, size and length of the chimney and become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your property.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. In the NBS tests, unlined chimneys allowed heat to move through the chimney so rapidly that the adjacent woodwork caught fire in only 3 1/2 hours. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. As the mortar joints wear away, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide could leak into the living areas of the property. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a properly-sized flue to perform properly. Our major role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the complete condition of the chimney system.

The required cleaning frequency might depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel and the burning habits of the property owner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch should be removed. Our experts employ many cleaning practices to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney checks are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of repairs.

Expressway: Your Local Mount Sinai Chimney Maintenance Experts

Several of the usual chimney cleaning plans that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method and involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the residence. This type of cleaning is effective for soot and ordinary creosote deposits but has little effect on glaze deposits.

Mechanical Sweeping. Mechanical cleaning involves the use of wire brushes, plastic cables or special chains rotated at high speed by an electric motor. Mechanical cleaning is often employed to remove hard creosote or glaze deposits. In some cases where it is impossible to clean the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it’s necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are seldom the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney might remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases might be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that can resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature correct to the class of the chimney job.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney pros can usually be done in less couple of hours and can make sure your home does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to the owner.
