Pawtucket RI Chimney Sweep - Expert Chimney Services in Pawtucket RI
The name Pawtucket comes from the Algonian word, meaning ‘riverfall’. Said to be one of the most populous places in New England prior to the arrival of European Settlers in 1671, the Native Americans would gather to catch salmon and fish at the falls. A lot has changed in Pawtucket, RI since then - except the need for a good old chimney sweep! Back then there were no chimney liners or chimney caps, and if you needed a chimney repair - you’d call the local orphanage and send them up with a brush. That approach to chimney cleaning today would probably get you in some trouble... but that’s just how they got the creosote and coal soot out back then.

Chimney Leaks Pawtucket
Pawtucket, RI loves a good rain and one would think that sparks from your chimney are as rare as a family guy episode that doesn’t mention our town (if you know you know). However, in the interests of safety and local requirements, chimney caps are a vital part of your fireplace. A proper chimney cap will often have a spark arrester (recommended and often required), an animal cover or critter guard and a chimney chase cover, to seal off from moisture and protect the interior. Due to high winds in some parts of the north east, a vacustack chimney cover is often recommended to prevent wind inducted downdrafts. Basically, if you’ve spent time in Pawtucket felt a ‘breeze’ give your picnic wings at Slater Memorial Park - you need a vacustack.
