Dryer vents are the number one leading cause of house fire in the U.S. With dryers being put in more convenient areas in the home the dryers vent is becoming longer and longer which give the lint more opportunity to get caught in the run.
Standard Fireplace sweeps include brushing down of firebox walls, sweeping of smoke chamber, sweeping of fireplace flue, and removal of creosote from smoke shelf. A level one inspection is also provided at the time of a standard fireplace sweep.
Level one inspections are visual inspections that involve checking clearance to combustibles, height of venting system, condition of masonry, condition of flue, and any other exposed aspects of the system.
Level two inspections include all steps from a level one but include inspection of the unit in less accessible areas (attics, crawl spaces, etc.) and include sending a camera up or down the venting system. The camera will record all findings and will be displayed on a screen by the technician.
