Fire & Boiler Chimney Cleaning

Keep your commercial or residential property safe with a clean fire or boiler chimney

All fireplaces, whether wood-burning and gas powered, as well as commercial firetube boilers, use chimneys to make sure that smoke, ash, and soot are released properly into the air outside. Which is why keeping your chimney free of debris is absolutely vital not just for your health and safety, but for that of your employees or loved ones.

As a proud member of the National Air Ducts Cleaning Association (NADCA), the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association (IKCEA) and the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), at United Air Duct Cleaning all technicians are well trained to clean your chimney and equipment deeply and thoroughly with the right equipment and best techniques.

For more than 10 years we have been serving our valued clients throughout New York City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, The Bronx, Long Island, Northern New Jersey and Lower Connecticut. So whether you need quarterly, seasonal, or yearly chimney cleaning, our professional team is ready and waiting to serve you at all times.

Why do I need my fire or boiler chimney cleaned?

As wood, fuel, or gas is burnt millions of tiny particles, as well as smoke and heat, are released into the air. These airborne particles follow the path of least resistance and flow out the nearest clear opening, such as a vent or chimney.

But along the way, many of these particles stick to the walls, building up rapidly in corners and pipes, making your boiler or fireplace a serious health hazard by –

  • Blocking air outlets, meaning that smoke and deadly carbon monoxide can leak back into your home or workplace
  • Being a fire hazard, as these substances are flammable, meaning your chimney could potentially catch fire and cause devastating damage

But you can easily avoid these issues by getting your fireplace or boiler chimney properly and thoroughly cleaned by a professional at least once a year.

How will United Air Duct Cleaning clean my boiler or fire chimney?

After arriving, our technicians will quickly survey your chimney and identify the best method of cleaning depending on the type of chimney you have. They will also advise you about your chimney’s current condition and whether they detect any venting problems, damage, or deterioration.

Then, they will –

  1. Open all access panels and vents as necessary
  2. Seal the opening to your chimney or boiler to prevent your office or room from getting dirty
  3. Thoroughly clean all parts of your chimney, either from bottom to top, or top to bottom, using specialized brushes to grind away thick layers of built up dirt and ash
  4. Remove all collected dirt and debris
  5. Reinstall all panels and closures

If you so wish, our technicians can also provide you with before and after pictures so that you can see the depth of cleaning and your chimney’s improved appearance. In addition, you can rest assured that upon completion, our technicians will check and remove any additional debris so that your property is left clean, safe, and healthier.
