Stay Ahead of the Fall Rush and Have Your Chimney Inspected & Swept This Summer - Albany NY - Northeastern Masonry & ChimneyDoes anyone still have old-fashioned wall calendars made of paper? We do. The kind with great nature scenes and fine photography. They help with planning. We have no objection, however, if you do all your planning digitally on your device, as it’s called. (We wonder if the old saying will become, “Left to our own devices…” — with brand-new meaning.)

Northeastern Masonry & Chimney mentions calendars for a reason. Consult your calendar app now or look at the one on your wall. Schedule your fall chimney inspection and sweeping now. Be the first one on your block. Be the first one on our dance card.

Dance card? Now we’re really going retro on you. In the 19th century (before so-called smartphones or even rotary phones), a man wishing to dance with a woman at a ball penciled his name on a booklet, or dance card, that the woman carried. If the intended dance partner’s dance card was full, the suitor was out of luck. Northeastern Masonry & Chimney wants you on our dance card before it is full, which will happen before you know it.

We suggest you schedule non-emergency services during the summer. That’s why we’re talking to you about this now. You won’t believe how busy things start to get — for you and for us — when the leaves turn colors and start to fall. Sure, emergencies are never planned, but routine maintenance can be. Schedule your chimney inspection and sweeping today.

Your yearly chimney sweeping is critical for preserving the life of your chimney. You understand the importance of maintaining a safe and efficient fireplace and chimney. Chimney inspection is not a DIY project. 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.
