Over 30 Years of Service to Our Industry and Your Community
Our owner, Gregg Boss, is a former President of the Missouri Guild and a national representative whose dedication and talent has made us one of the most requested service companies of our kind. Our mission is to meet our clients and individual needs with specialized professional services and quality craftsmanship in which we have achieved our solid reputation.
English Sweep uses the most up-to-date equipment that allows the Chimney Sweep to remove hazardous quantities of creosote from fireplace flues. Our diagnostic camera fits inside masonry flues to find potential hazards the naked eye can't detect. Maintaining the flue system each year will reduce the possibility of flue fires and deterioration.
Air Duct Maintenance
We use the Meyer's General, one of the most powerful vacuum systems marketed, along with hoses that snake through the vents of the living quarters filled with compressed air, sweeping dust and debris from air ducts. We also deodorize and sanitize the ductwork after cleaning. This provides help that may relieve symptoms of asthma, allergies and other respiratory ailments.
Connectors collect large amounts of lint and fabric, causing potential back up of carbon monoxide gases, increased condensation and fires. We remove this lint and debris to assist in keeping the home and family protected from these hazards.
Each year we service over 3,000 homes. We will provide references, lien waivers and certificates of insurance upon request.
Sweeping and Evaluation
We encourage our clients to include an annual chimney sweeping and inspection with their other yearly home maintenance projects. An annual chimney inspection by a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® can significantly reduce the danger of chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning in your home. Our technicians are highly trained, and the modest price far outweighs the risk of smoke, fire or carbon monoxide damage.
Chimney and Masonry Repair Services
We Work On All Types of Fireplace Systems:
We recommend sweeping your dryer vents each year to reduce the effects of build-up that may lead to hazardous conditions.
Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning
We recommend cleaning your air ducts every four to five years following new construction and major restoration projects in the home. Sweeping and electrostatic filter will reduce contaminants in ductwork and possibly improve some respiratory conditions.
We use CHIMSCAN to look inside masonry flues. Clients can view areas of deterioration on monitor or findings can be recorded if tape is provided.
