Chimney Sweep Performed by a WETT Certified Sweep :
Our WETT Trained sweeping standard ensures we are removing all deposits possible and doing the best job we can, even if it takes a little longer. We note any issues found during the course of a sweep on the service report, and make sure you are aware on them.
A full sweep of one open fireplace and connected chimney includes a full sweep from the roof down with a properly sized brush, rotary power sweep of the smoke chamber and damper, vacuum the smoke shelf, and sweep and vacuum the firebox. All work is performed by a WETT Certified Advanced Chimney Sweep.
A WETT Certified sweep of one woodstove/insert and the connected chimney includes a full sweep from the roof down with a properly sized brush, a rotary power sweep of the flue pipes for a wood stove, sweep and vacuum the baffle, rails, heat tubes, and firebox. All work is performed by a WETT Certified Advanced Chimney Sweep.
Unusually high or steep roofs may cost more, as does extra travel time if the home is outside our regular service area. We have equipment to properly sweep a system from the bottom, which can be a better option if you have a fragile or unsafe roof.
We do not sweep uncertified insert or woodstove systems.
Pellet appliances, furnaces, and boilers usually require a different service. At this time, we do not offer these services.
WETT Inspections for real estate or insurance requirements:
WETT inspections are an important service we offer. Many types of safety inspections can be done, and it is good to be aware that not all inspections are the same, and that all inspectors do not have the same level of training and experience.
We specialize in doing inspections conducted by a WETT Certified Inspector for insurance or real estate transaction purposes, also known as Comprehensive or Technical Inspections. A WETT Technical Inspection Report covers all areas necessary to be considered an “insurance” or real estate inspection, including multiple page WETT Inspection Checklist forms.
We have the equipment, experience, and training to conduct more in depth Invasive WETT inspections where necessary. This type of inspection is not needed with every chimney sweep or real estate transaction, but may be necessary if the customer or technician suspects certain problems.
It is important to note that even the most thorough inspection may not reveal all problems. Some areas of the chimney may not be accessible due to the construction of the house. WETT Inspections do not include trouble shooting performance, operating the appliance, or starting a fire. Be sure to discuss any specific concerns with your technician. The chosen inspection level will reflect your comments and concerns.
