Chimney Sweep, Inspections & Repair In Dedham MA
Dedham MA residents have relied on Above & Beyond Chimney Sweep of Dedham since 1997 to keep their chimneys and fireplaces running safely and efficiently. Here’s how we can help you.
A clean chimney is a safe chimney. When you use your fireplace, creosote forms inside the flue. Annual chimney sweep service by trained technicians is the best way to deal with the creosote problem, which can lead to:
- A chimney fire
- Damage to the chimney liner and masonry behind it
- A drafting obstruction
Dedham homeowners also call us for chimney sweeping to remove obstructions such as leaves, twigs, the nests of small animals and small animals who have died inside the chimney. These obstructions can cause smoke to draft improperly and send deadly carbon monoxide back into your home.
Above & Beyond Chimney Sweep of Dedham provides all three levels of chimney inspection recognized by the Chimney Safety Institute of America.
Level 1: Inspection covering all visible parts of your chimney system.
Level 2: Performed when a home is being sold, when the venting system is being altered and following a malfunction or other event that may have caused damage.
Level 3: A Level 3 chimney inspection is called for when a previous inspection turns up severe system damage. This inspection usually involves removing sections of the chimney and/or adjacent home materials.
An annual chimney inspection by our certified team is the best way to ensure continued top performance and operational safety from your chimney.
