Owned and Operated by Firefighters
Smoke Alert was established in 2010 and we are very proud of the fact that fire safety is our top priority. Our mission is to save lives by providing superior service at reasonable prices. Our main services are chimney sweeping and dryer vent cleaning, but with every service we also offer a free home fire safety check performed by our technicians who are also firefighters. This includes a check of all smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and fire extinguishers in the home. If anything is found to be defective or not present, the technician can install new ones for about the same amount you would spend purchasing them from a store.
BEWARE of CHIMNEY SWEEP and DRYER VENT "DEALS"
There are a lot of companies that say they do chimney sweeping, but they are not properly insured or certified to do the work. These companies will advertise that they can do full inspections and sweeping of masonry chimneys. To be properly insured for chimney work requires far more than a standard liability policy - in fact, chimney policies can cost upwards of $8,000 even for a small policy that does not include workers' comp. That budget company will show up with a standard shop vac ($100.00) versus a professional chimney vacuum ($4,000.00). They run a high risk of getting hazardous soot or dust in your home using a system without a HEPA filter that is not specifically designed for chimneys or dryer vents. The dryer vent brushes used will not be professional brushes, but rather an inexpensive set from a hardware store that is likely to get stuck or damage the dryer vent. In order to make up for the other companies' reduced price you can expect to be told scary things about your chimney that will require a lot of costly and sometimes unnecessary work to repair. Smoke Alert will visit homes after companies like this all the time to clean up messes and get the job done right. I implore you to look at reviews online to compare the caliber of work we offer versus work done by a handyman or cut-rate company. All of our work will meet or exceed code and is done to meet current standards.
