Burning Season Inspections Image - Albany NY - Northeastern Masonry Picture you and your family sitting peacefully by your fireplace on a December evening. You look like a pioneer family, knitting or smoking a pipe. Well, not exactly. Maybe a football game is on the big-screen television. Without obvious warning, your fireplace starts to exude a funny smell. Or perhaps smoke starts escaping into your den. You’ve got some sort of problem, and it’s now a bit of an emergency.

No, we can never precisely predict when something like that might occur, but we can go a long ways toward preventing such scenarios.

Now is the time for prevention – before the burning season.

Northeastern Masonry & Chimney suggests you schedule some common-sense preventive maintenance, non-emergency services now. We are coming into our busy season, so prudent advance planning is in order.

Schedule your chimney inspection and sweeping today.

A chimney inspection and sweeping is a critical step in attempting to ward off an emergency during the burning season that is rapidly approaching. Keep in mind that a chimney inspection is not a do-it-yourself venture!

At Northeastern Masonry & Chimney, we are trained professionals who know chimney maintenance, home safety and fire prevention. Our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified technicians have the skills and tools to clean your chimney properly.

Northeastern Masonry & Chimney experts are trained in National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG) standards and educated in NFPA-211 codes and recommendations. We keep abreast of the latest industry guidelines and recommendations.

A professional chimney cleaning involves clearly defined actions. We perform a thorough and appropriate regimen of industry-recommended tasks. Brushable creosote and soot are removed carefully so as to avoid fireplace or chimney damage. Our cleaning even reaches into the elbows in factory-built chimneys. We also clean connector pipes, which can become separated if they were improperly sized or if inappropriate brushes or rods were used.

Northeastern Masonry & Chimney removes soot and creosote from the smoke shelf and firebox as it becomes dislodged during cleaning. We use proven methods to assure that no soot or creosote escapes into your home. Our technicians employ drop cloths, rug runners, high-speed vacuums, shoe covers and tarps to give you a mess-free cleaning.

Beat the rush and put our 35 years of success to work for you. If you live in the Capital District, Central or Northern New York, the Hudson Valley or western Massachusetts, call Northeastern Masonry & Chimney today at 518-767-9315.
