In Need of a Professional Chimney Sweep?

The chimney sweep is a famous figure in folklore, fiction, and film—but the chimney sweep is also a reality that today’s homes often need. If you have a fireplace or a gas furnace, you must contact chimney sweeps for professional cleanings each year to keep the exhaust passages clear. 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. has certified chimney sweeps ready to help you in Wayzata, MN with chimney cleaning and fireplace cleaning. Don’t let your chimney turn into a potential hazard because of creosote and soot build–up or other debris: call us today to arrange for professional chimney sweeping.

Call Us if You Need a Chimney or Fireplace Inspection

A chimney inspection is much more than a quick look up the flue to see if anything is blocking it from venting properly. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recognizes three levels of professional chimney inspections, and the technicians at 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. are certified via the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) to perform all of them. Both the CSIA and NFPA recommend that you schedule a Level 1 inspection each year in order to locate possible safety issues with your chimney and fireplace, as well as to discover if you need a Level 2 or 3 inspections. Call us to schedule your inspection in Wayzata, MN.

We Are Gas Fireplace Installation Experts

To install a gas fireplace, follow these simple instructions: give 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. a call. You never want to try to put in a gas–powered appliance on your own because of the risk of carbon monoxide leaking, nor should you entrust the work to amateurs. Our professional installers will help you find the right new gas fireplace or gas log insert for your home, and then we will handle the rest of the work necessary. Before you know it, you’ll have a new fireplace in your home in Wayzata, MN providing warmth and happiness for the household.

Do You Need a Gas Fireplace or Chimney Repair in Wayzata?

You must never hesitate when you think that your chimney or fireplace needs repairs. Damage to the flue lining and masonry can result in heat escaping to combustible material around the chimney, and damper problems can send exhaust fumes into your living spaces. Trouble with a gas fireplace offers the same potential hazards as problems with a gas furnace. You can reach excellent repair technicians at 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc. 24 hours a day for help in Wayzata, MN.

We Even Offer Dryer Vent Cleaning

As your clothing dryer works, bits of lint and fabric will escape through the lint trap and enter into the exhaust hose leading to the vent. Over time, this accumulation will start to impede the dryer’s operation—and worse, it will turn into a fire hazard. The excess heat inside the hose can ignite the lint, triggering a fire that spreads rapidly. To avoid this, arrange for regular dryer vent cleaning from 2nd Generation Chimneys, Inc.. We are glad to offer this service and many others to homes in Wayzata, MN.
