How Often Should I Get My Chimney Swept?

This is probably the most common question we hear from new clients in Nassau 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.


There’s Safety in Sweeping!

As mentioned in the above paragraph, soot in your fireplace can be very harmful to your loved ones. By keeping your chimney in proper working order, by regular cleaning or chimney repair, you can keep your home toxin-free.

What to Expect at Your First Appointment

Not only does Ageless Chimney pride itself on being one of the best chimney companies on East Hills, 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.

Done correctly, all of the dust, soot, and creosote will be contained and none should escape into the home. We will also utilize a professional vacuum to help with the cleanup. When the job is done, you should see no traces of soot or ash or signs that someone worked on or in your chimney. We will then tell you the condition of your chimney so that you are aware of any hazards, as well as how frequently to have your chimney inspected and cleaned. This is also a great time to ask any questions that you may have.

East Hills is a village in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. It is considered part of the Greater Roslyn area, which is anchored by the Incorporated Village of Roslyn. The population was 6,955 at the 2010 census.

In 1643, John Carman and Robert Fordham sailed across the Long Island Sound from Stamford, Connecticut and purchased the land that is now occupied by the towns of Hempstead and North Hempstead from the Marsappeaque, Matinecock, Mericock, and Rockoway Native Americans. This land included what is now East Hills.

For a long time, much of what now is East Hills was home to a few wealthy families. In 1898, Clarence and Katherine Mackay settled in present-day East Hills and would eventually commission Stanford White to design their mansion, Harbor Hill. In 1924, the Prince of Wales, who later abdicated the throne of England to marry Mrs. Simpson, was entertained at the Mackay estate. Aviation pioneer Charles A. Lindbergh even rested at the Mackay estate in 1927 after returning to the United States following his historic solo flight to Paris, France.

The Village of East Hills was incorporated on June 24, 1931, and its first election was held a couple weeks later on July 8 in barns at the Mackay estate. Reasons for incorporating included the desire by many locals to be excluded from paying taxes for sanitary sewer systems, highways, etc., the desire to not be part of the Roslyn Sewer District and to keep businesses out, and to maintain home rule powers. Many of the proposals which the locals were against were proposed when Roslyn wanted to incorporate, as early plans called for that village’s proposed boundaries to include what would become East Hills. As such, the residents decided to incorporate East Hills as a separate village.
