Fireplaces are the heart of the home where people gather on cold, snowy nights to snuggle against the warm glow of a mesmerizing fire. However, fireplaces can be a source of danger.
Every house has a chimney, which expels the harmful toxins of combustion. Furnaces, water heaters and gas appliances vent carbon monoxide. Wood-burning fireplaces vent smoke and creosote. The National Fire Protection Association recommends annual evaluations for these structures.
Since 1979, English Sweep has been family owned and operated by Gregg Boss, who is the only Master Certified Chimney Sweep in Missouri. English Sweep is staffed certified chimney and ventilation professionals. They have been recipients of the Angie’s List Super Service award for eight years.
English Sweep’s mission is to meet clients’ needs with service, quality and experience, using the most advanced industry tools. A diagnostic camera finds potential hazards they can repair. Annual maintenance reduces hazards and increases the performance of the flue system.
English Sweep takes care of bricks and tuck-pointing restoration; installs leak-proof chimney flashing; services and installs wood-burning or gas stoves, inserts, gas logs and stainless steel flue liners. Additionally, they install covers, glass doors and solve wet, leaky wall issues. They also install gas liners for furnaces and water heaters.
Dryer vents collect deposits of lint and moisture, causing potential hazards with carbon monoxide, increased condensation and fire, as well as hinder the dryer’s performance and longevity. Allow English Sweep to remove debris or reroute poorly located, damaged liners.
