Looking for a low cost sweep to do a very short chimney on a single story flat roof. My regular one has vanished or at least their cell phone has. Hired 2 others and 2 no shows while I hung out for 4 hours waiting. No call no email no nothing. The chimney has around 4 tons of Blaschack burned with a faint amount of light grey in the stack looking in the draft regulator and mostly the black coating from stack pipe, wondering if I just blow it off this year. 5 ft. of Dura-plus stainless outside and 7 ft. of single wall inside. Tapping on single wall it rings and seems very solid. Maybe 1 inch of ash in bottom elbow off the stove. I would think there are plenty of people that have burned double that in one year and just fine. All was new in 2011 and first 3 years on evil wood with a different stove LOL.
I have been paying $75.00 a year since 2012 and same guy never spent more than 30 minutes here and usually 15 or 20 so seems fair as far as money goes.
