Birdies Mobile Screens & Chimney Sweep
I am 100% satisfied with Richard's service! I contacted him to install several retractable awnings for various homes that I own and have never been let down. He always keeps his appointments and is on time. Very clean, friendly and approachable. My neighbor has also used him to inspect and sweep his chimney with no problems. Highly recommend, you will not be let down!

Very appreciative of this guy! My chimney began smoking, I made a calll and within the day he came out to repair and clean my chimney. I found his information from a friend who used him in the past with no complaints. He has lots of experience and is personable, answering all questions. I also hired him to fix my screen door! Happy with the experience!!

You will not be let down! ! The owner returns calls promptly and is very friendly. My sister recommended this business after he installed a couple sunscreens for her with no issues. Richard is on time and does his work on site. I hired him to install tow retractable screen doors and re-screen a side window, very affordable. Awesome experience!

Tips & Advices
As part of regular home maintenance, you can look for signs up build-up or debris accumulating in a fireplace. n addition to practicing safe wood burning and cleaning the in-home structure, you can also use a flashlight on occasion to inspect for any obvious cracks or blockage. Strong smells emanating from the fireplace when not in use may be an indication of the need to consult with a professional who can handle the broader inspection and any major issues that arise from it.
It can be dangerous not to have your chimney inspected from the interior, since only a licensed professional can detect things like creosote build-up or a defective damper. Failing to address such issues can, at the very least, reduce the efficiency of airflow within your home, and at worst, lead to a fire.
Most inspectors are called chimney cleaning professionals these days, but the term chimney sweep traditionally refers to the person who evaluates the flue, damper and roof, and then cleans them from the inside. A certified chimney sweep will also inspect your fireplace and the room in which it operates, checking for any structural inefficiencies or signs of leakage. When looking to hire a chimney cleaner, it’s best to seek one who is certified by the CSIA or NCSG.
A chimney flue is essentially a duct that runs from the fireplace to the top of the chimney, helping convey the gas and heat out of the home. It must be properly sealed in order to protect the home and withstand the exhaust that passes through.
The damper is the device that seals the chimney shut when it is not in use. It usually operates as a small flap inside the flue, helping retain warm air and insulate the home, even when there is no fire going.
