A Safer Home Is In Your Hands — Let Traditions Chimney Sweeps Help With Chimney Sweepings, Inspections & Consultations

As a homeowner, you want to be sure your home is as safe as it can be, and as a company founded by career firefighters, we want to help. We’ve put out countless fires here in Montgomery County and we’ve seen the devastation they’ve caused to the community. But what makes these fires even more devastating is knowing that many could have been easily prevented with some simple maintenance and care. We want to make that preventive care easy, mess-free, and stress-free for our customers so there’s no reason to put it off any longer.

What kind of preventive and restorative care do we provide?

  • Rotary Power Chimney Sweeping — A clean chimney is key if you want to reduce your risk of chimney fire and keep your system in tip-top shape over the years. Here at Traditions Chimney Sweeps, we most commonly use rotary power chimney sweeping systems to get every last bit of soot, buildup, and blockages out, but we also use traditional sweeping tools when needed. We’ll determine which is best for your chimney, clean the chimney top to bottom, and safely remove dust, soot, and deposits from your home.
  • PCR Glazed Creosote Removal — Glazed creosote is a leading cause of chimney fires, and this flammable, tacky, hard substance that’s produced when wood burns incompletely can really threaten your safety. But it’s also just plain bad for your chimney! It’s highly corrosive, highly flammable, and difficult to remove, but with Poultice Creosote Remover and our specialized tools, we can get it out so you can enjoy a safer fireside experience.
  • Level 2 Safety Inspections — Whether you just want to make sure your chimney system is clean and in peak condition or you suspect you may have some issues going on with your fireplace, stove, or chimney, scheduling a level 2 safety inspection is a must. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends annual inspections for chimneys of all kinds, and we follow those standards strictly. If it’s been more than a year since your last inspection, the time to schedule is now. We’ll thoroughly evaluate your chimney and the attached appliance and provide you with a detailed report of our findings. When we’re done, you’ll know if there’s anything you need to do to maintain or restore the safety and performance of your chimney or appliance.
  • Real Estate Inspections — Are you buying a new home? Are you a realtor who wants to make sure your clients get the house they dream of, with no surprises? Schedule a real estate inspection. Real estate inspections are far more thorough than the chimney inspection performed by a home inspector, and through these inspections, we’ve saved home buyers thousands of dollars in repairs and alerted them to fire hazards and other risks. We want to make sure that you get what you pay for and that there are no hidden dangers or needed repairs you don’t know about prior to closing. Buy with confidence by scheduling a real estate inspection with Traditions Chimney Sweeps. We perform inspections quickly and thoroughly and provide detailed reports for records and negotiations.
