How Often Should I Get My Chimney Swept?
This is probably the most common question we hear from new clients in New York 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.

Hudson Yards is a neighborhood on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan, bounded roughly by 30th Street in the south, 43rd Street in the north, the West Side Highway in the west, and Eighth Avenue in the east. The area is the site of a large-scale redevelopment program that is being planned, funded, and constructed under a set of agreements among the State of New York, City of New York, and Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), with the aim of expanding the Midtown Manhattan business district westward to the Hudson River. The program includes a major rezoning of the Far West Side, an extension of the New York City Subway’s 7 and trains to a new subway station at 34th Street and 11th Avenue, a renovation and expansion of the Javits Center, and a financing plan to fund the various components. The various components are being planned by New York City Department of City Planning and New York City Economic Development Corporation.
