If you are looking for a good price and professional service then look no further. Paulie, the service technician is a rock star when it comes to chimneys, he sucessfully restored my 100 year old fireplace 2 years ago and did it for a super affordable price explaining everything to me along the way. I can now enjoy my fireplace like I always wanted. Highly recommended.

Had a great experience with them! They called me up reminding me that I was overdue for a chimney cleaning, scheduled me the next day, arrived timely and were very polite and now I'm all set.

The Importance of Routine Chimney Cleaning for Your Lake Ronkonkoma, NY Home

Why Routine Chimney Cleaning is Important for Your Lake Ronkonkoma, NY Home

If you’re lucky enough to have one, there’s no doubt that the fireplace is one of the most beloved features of your Suffolk County home. It provides welcoming warmth on those chilly nights, it creates ambiance, and it adds to the aesthetic appeal of your home’s interior. Needless to say, a fireplace is an asset, but in order to ensure it remains that way and continues to provide all those wonderful benefits that you enjoy, it needs to be properly maintained, and routine chimney cleanings are a vital part of fireplace maintenance.

According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), chimney cleanings should be done at least once a year; however, if your fireplace gets a lot of use, more frequent cleanings may be necessary. But why is chimney cleaning so important? Here’s a look at some of the top reasons why hiring a Lake Ronkonkoma, NY chimney sweep is essential.

Reduced Fire Risk

Dirty chimneys are a serious fire hazard. Each time you light a fire, creosote, ash, soot, and other byproducts of combustion are deposited on the walls of your flue. Not only that, but debris from outside, such as leaves, twigs, acorns, and possibly even pests can get trapped inside the structure. All of these elements are extremely combustible, and the more they accumulate, the greater the risk that a fire will occur. All it takes is one small spark to start a chimney fire that could spread throughout your entire house. Regular chimney cleanings performed by a licensed and experienced Lake Ronkonkoma, NY chimney sweep will help to reduce the risk of fire, safeguarding your Suffolk County home, and more importantly, your family and yourself.

Improved Efficiency

A chimney does more than just exhaust excess heat, smoke, soot, and ash from your fireplace; it also feeds the fire with the oxygen it needs to burn. If your chimney is dirty, oxygen won’t be able to travel as freely throughout the structure, and as a result, your fires will be affected; in other words, they won’t burn as powerfully and produce as much heat as they should. Regular chimney cleanings performed by a Lake Ronkonkoma, NY chimney sweep will help eliminate any built-up debris and improve the flow of oxygen to your fireplace, which in turn, will improve the efficiency of your fires.

Reduced Damage

While there’s nothing better than curling up in front of a roaring fire and feeling the warmth that it produces, fires aren’t exactly clean. They produce a lot of soot, ash, and creosote. Over time, the buildup of these elements will reduce the efficiency of your chimney, and instead of exhausting out of your Suffolk County home, they can settle on the hearth, interior walls, flooring, furnishings, and anything else nearby. If the built-up debris is thick enough, your chimney will become a serious fire hazard. To protect your home from damage, hiring a chimney cleaning professional is a must. A skilled Lake Ronkonkoma, NY chimney sweep will remove all of the debris, which will improve the function of your chimney, and in turn, reduce the risk of damage to your property.

Some information about Lake Ronkonkoma

Lake Ronkonkoma is a census-designated place (CDP) in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 20,155 at the 2010 census.

The actual lake, Lake Ronkonkoma, adjacent to the CDP, is the largest lake on Long Island. The land surrounding one side of the lake is in the jurisdiction of Islip. The elevation of the lake surface is given as 55 feet (17 m) on the most recent USGS map, but as the lake is a “groundwater lake”, not fed by streams, it has no surface outlet and its water surface reflects the current level of the local water table. This can undergo significant changes over time, and the lake level experiences slow periods of rise and fall. In the late 1960s it was quite low; after several intermediate changes in level, in 2007 the lake was higher than at any time since, with a difference of well over 5 feet (1.5 m) between the 1960s low and the 2007 high.

As a result of the lake’s existence, Lake Ronkonkoma was once a resort town, until the area experienced a population explosion in the mid-20th century. Remnants of old resorts and hotels can still be seen around the lake’s shores. Many summer cottages and bungalows from that period remain, now converted to year-round use.

The lake is the subject of a number of urban legends, mainly rooted in the area’s rich Native American heritage. For example: 1. “It’s bottomless” (and/or empties into Long Island Sound or other waterways). In fact, the lake is relatively deep (approx. 65 feet (20 m)) at its southeastern side, and is what’s known as a kettle hole lake. 2. “Every year the lake sacrifices someone.” Or more specifically, Princess Ronkonkoma “The Lady of the Lake” calls young men out to the middle of the lake and drowns them. In all versions, the lady is an Indian princess who herself drowned in the lake, for reasons that vary depending on the story. The most popular version is that every year the lake claims one male victim. Articles suggest that in the past 200 years, only a handful of females have drowned in Lake Ronkonkoma. 3. “There is a mysterious rise and fall of the lake that doesn’t have any noticeable relationship to local rainfall totals.” This has not been sufficiently explained either way.
