Additional Services for Your Home
You call us when you need a chimney sweep and inspection, but your home may need additional services.
Did you check your inspection sheet and find that you need repairs, but didn’t book it? Maybe, you didn’t know what the repair would include or if Ashbusters even offered the service. If you’ve been having issues with your dryer and think you need to go shopping for a new dryer, think again! It could be as simple as scheduling a dryer vent cleaning by certified professionals.

Both the National Fire Protection Association and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) have issued statements stating that cracks, gaps and other damage to the flue liner should result in removal and replacement or relining of the flue for safety and structure reasons.
Chimney Relining Options: Repair or Replace
Relining options are dictated by the type of chimney you have. If you have an older chimney, it’s most likely made of clay. When the clay flakes, chips, breaks or cracks, it can allow dangerous gases like CO, which is very poisonous, to enter your home through the attic and walls making it a must repair or replace. If you have a stainless steel chimney liner, and it was installed by a certified chimney professional, it is backed by a lifetime warranty. Just call the original company and they will be able to help you get that liner replaced.
The repair for a clay and terracotta liner is so new we have an entire page of information on the HeatShield® process explaining how it’s done. Briefly, the interior of the liner is coated with a material then smoothed out to leave a clean and even surface.
When it is determined that a liner is beyond repair and needs to be replaced, we always use stainless steel. This liner has a lifetime warranty and is just the best material available for the job we ask a liner to perform. Stainless steel will not rust and it holds and moves the heat and smoke up through the house and out into the atmosphere with ease. The warranty is only good with the professional installation of the product — another reason to make sure you are working with a certified chimney company.
The Problem: Believe it or not, dryer vents are now considered to be more of a fire hazard than chimneys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued an alert due to the fact that there are 15,500 fires, 10 deaths and 310 injuries from dryer exhaust fires annually.
The Main Reasons to Clean Dryer Vents:
- THEY WILL NOT IGNITE AND START A FIRE
- THEY WILL EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR DRYER
- THEY WILL SAVE ENERGY (clothes will not take as long to dry)
Dryer vent cleaning service prices will vary depending on accessibility, length of the dryer vent and possible blockages or breakage in the piping.
We have been with Ashbusters for several years and they have always been great with their services. The techs are great and we never had any issues with them. Brandon just completed our regular fireplace tune-up and cleaned our dryer vent, he is a very pleasant and done a great job. Highly recommend Ashbusters to all.
I have used Ashbusters several times to clean my chimney, as well as to do repairs, warranty work, and clean up work done by a company that went out of business. Each and every time Ashbusters has been thorough, professional, prompt, and carefully explained what needed to be done, as well as pricing. I got competitive bids and Ashbusters has consistently been the far better choice. Mark and John do a great job! I absolutely recommend them!
