Frequently Asked Questions
As you know, there are many contractors and subcontractors in cleaning, maintenance, and building improvement space that are operating without proper qualifications. Because the systems being monitored and maintained affect the physical safety of residents, tenants and the physical property itself, this is not the time to take shortcuts. A single loss incident resulting from poor maintenance can have devastating consequences. Fresh Sweeps is properly insured and its technicians have the top training available. Every sweep is required to be a Certified Chimney Professional and, if they are working on HVAC systems and air ducts, they must be a certified Air Systems Cleaning Specialist per the National Air Duct Cleaning Association.
While the basic principles may be the same for chimneys, air ducts and dryer vents between residential and commercial properties, the complexity is normally much greater. Although some locations may simply represent a multiple of small, self-contained systems, others including laundry rooms may be large or intertwined. Residential providers frequently cannot properly inspect them much less deliver necessary services. Fresh Sweeps can handle the trickiest and toughest of systems.
Sweeping a chimney can be simple if there are no restrictions, unexpected debris or animals present in the flue or connector pipe. Cleaning air ducts seems straightforward until excess contaminants, moisture or breaks in the line are discovered. Dryer vents require reasonable attention unless kinks in the line get found. A top-tier provider knows their options, can estimate the work accurately and complete the job promptly – which is exactly what you can expect from Fresh Sweeps.
