Unless you’re Santa Claus, you probably don’t think about the inside of your chimney very often. So you really aren’t considering how dirty that chimney might be and how badly it needs to be cleaned.
As licensed Northern VA chimney technicians, we at JCS Home Services can tell you: Those chimneys can get dirty. The interiors of the brick masonry become caked with dirt, soot, and a highly flammable substance called creosote. Regulations stipulate that any layer of creosote more than 1.8 inches thick should be scraped off and removed by professional rooftop chimney sweeps.
Plus, animals, their nests, and their leavings can accumulate, contributing to clogging the chimney and interfering with the efficient operation of the fireplace.
That’s not a good thing.
The solution is to call JCS Home Services before winter sets in and let us perform a through, professional chimney sweep service. We have a team of highly-trained chimney sweeps who are ready and willing to get down (or, in this case, up) in the muck and mire, and clean your chimney, fireplace, wood stove, and everything to the absolute highest quality.
A clean chimney is a great way to help keep your family safe.
Northern Virginia may be big but JCS Home Services is succeeding in NoVA as a small company. Why? Maybe it’s because we offer a suite of services that other companies in the home services industry don’t match:
But it’s more than our comprehensive array of services for your house’s air ducts, dryer vents, gutters, and chimneys. It’s also the fact that JCS Home Services offers all these services on your schedule.
JCS is proud to offer timely appointments that don’t force you to wait at home during a four-hour window until we show up. We set chimney service appointments for specific times, and we show up when we say we will. It’s how we respect your time.
That’s not an insignificant claim for chimney sweeps to make in Northern VA. Considering the traffic congestion of our service areas like Leesburg and Sterling, Arlington and Falls Church, Chantilly and Fairfax VA, getting from job to job at specific times is no small feat for any business. But we do our utmost to arrive on time and conduct our sweeping, repairs, and other business with professionalism and care for your entire home – the rooftop chimney and the living space – so that you can rest assured you’re keeping your family safe thanks to JCS’ expert chimney service and fireplace cleaning.
There’s much more to a rooftop chimney than meets the eye. It’s an entire mechanism, a deceptively complex system involving a smoke chamber, fire box, flue, and throat – and on the rooftop chimney, perhaps a crown or cap. Its design and repair needs can vary depending upon whether the chimney supports a traditional fireplace, gas fireplace, or wood-burning stove. There’s a lot going on inside a chimney, and whenever wood is getting burned, you definitely need the best chimney sweeps in Northern Virginia on the case.
The experienced chimney technicians of JCS Home Services know all about these components. Heck, the company has made a steady business out of Northern VA chimney repairs, from fixing cracks in masonry work to performing Level Two camera-aided inspections. It makes sense to hire chimney sweeps who know a lot about chimneys. Regular maintenance and excellent advice can save you quite a bit of money in costly repairs you’re not paying for.
It takes an especially dedicated company of chimney sweeps to earn the trust that JCS Home Services has earned from our client base in the Northern VA service area over the past 15-plus years. It’s more than first-class repairs to fireplaces or expertly removing the nasty soot out of a chimney.
For JCS to have become the preeminent chimney sweeps within a 20-mile radius of Fairfax VA, it’s taken relentless effort, superior expertise, unfailingly punctual appointment arrivals, and 5-star customer service from the best chimney cleaning Northern VA homeowners can get.
