How Often Should I Get My Chimney Swept?

This is probably the most common question we hear from new clients in Suffolk County. The frequency of getting your chimney cleaning depends on a few variables. First, the size of your chimney, secondly the amount of soot that is produced. However, the general answer is that your chimney should be cleaned about every four years. Although that’s a pretty infrequent need, it is still very important. By keeping your chimney cleaned, you protect your family from harsh toxins that are released from soot that has built up over time.

Not only does Ageless Chimney pride itself on being one of the best chimney companies on East Hampton, NY, we also like to act quickly and efficiently. When we come to your home to provide you with your free estimate, we will only need about half an hour of your time. If you are looking for a quick inspection, it is always a good idea to move any furniture away from the fireplace. If that isn’t possible, covering it up with a tarp is also wise. Make sure that the ladder, the soot hatch, or the sweeping hatch are as accessible as possible. One of our owners will first survey your fireplace and chimney before getting to work to determine what they have to do to properly clean your chimney. We will also put a drop cloth on the floor in front of the fireplace to protect the floor from potential dust and soot.

The Town of East Hampton is located in southeastern Suffolk County, New York, at the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. It is the easternmost town in the state of New York. At the time of the 2020 United States census, it had a total population of 28,385.

This area had been inhabited for thousands of years by wandering tribes of indigenous peoples. At the time of European contact, East Hampton was home to the Pequot people, part of the culture that also occupied territory on the northern side of Long Island Sound, in what is now Connecticut of southern New England. They belong to the large Algonquian-speaking language family. Bands on Long Island were identified by their geographic locations. The historical people known to the colonists as the Montaukett, who were Pequot, controlled most of the territory at the east end of Long Island.

Indians inhabiting the western part of Long Island were part of the Lenape nation, whose language is also in the Algonquian family. Their territory extended to lower New York, western Connecticut and the mid-Atlantic coastal areas into New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Their bands were also known by the names of their geographic locations but did not constitute distinct peoples.

In the late-17th century Chief Wyandanch of the Montaukett negotiated with English colonists for the land in the East Hampton area. The differing concepts held by the Montaukett and English about land and its use contributed to the Montaukett losing most of their lands over the ensuing centuries. Wyandanch’s elder brother, the grand sachem Poggaticut, sold an island to English colonist Lion Gardiner for “a large black dog, some powder and shot, and a few Dutch blankets.” The next trade involved the land extending from present-day Southampton to the foot of the bluffs, at what is now Hither Hills State Park, for 24 hatchets, 24 coats, 20 looking glasses and 100 muxes.
