What To Expect From Your Jack Pixley Sweeps Technician
When having your chimney and fireplace swept and/or inspected, you can expect the highest level of service. At Jack Pixley Sweeps, we’re passionate about what we do and take pleasure in helping our neighbors. Our technicians will always greet you with a smile and discuss your goals and problems before beginning any work. We’ll also explain how our cleaning system works and how we prevent dust from spreading to your home, and answer any questions you may have before we begin. Once we’ve consulted with you and explained the process, we’ll put down protective sheets in the 5 foot area surrounding your chimney and fireplace. At this point, we’ll do a basic inspection of the firebox, damper and smoke shelf, before bringing in the rest of the tools needed for the process. If we are able to (safely), we’ll inspect the part of your chimney that exits through the roof. Once on the roof, we’ll evaluate the condition of your chimney’s flue, brick, mortar joints and flashing. We may also attach a top vacuum to assist in dust prevention. If we notice that you need any minor repairs (such as a new chimney screen or chimney cap), we’ll offer to take care of these issues on the spot (unless you need to special order a specific part). Once the flue liner, smoke chamber and smoke shelf have been meticulously cleaned, our technicians will ask that you be present for the remaining part of the process.
At this point, we will perform a Chim-Scan inspection (using a Chim-Scan chimney camera), which will allow us to get a detailed look at the interior of your chimney. We ask that you be present so that we can explain to you what we see, as we see it, and discuss the condition and recommended repairs with you. The Chim-Scan camera allows us to take pictures of any problem areas (i.e. cracks, voids, improper construction) so that you have solid proof of your chimney’s condition and needs. These pictures will be sent to you (typically within a week of your appointment), in addition to a proposal, so that you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision regarding repairs and future fireplace and chimney use. We know that the options can sometimes be overwhelming, but we’re here to answer any questions you may have. You can count on us to be honest and forthright about your chimney’s safety and condition – we will never pressure you to make unnecessary repairs.
