Chimney Caps and Chimney Repairs.  Installing chimney caps prevents unwanted animals from nesting in chimneys and gaining access to your home.  Birds and animals carry diseases and the combination of their droppings with rain creates a terrible odor.  Nests in a chimney can also result in a dangerous flue blockage.    

More chimney repairs are caused by the lack of a chimney cap than any other source.  Moisture encourages premature deterioration to the chimney interior and can damage metal fireboxes and dampers while eroding flue tiles and mortar joints leaving dangerous cracks and blockages. 

Reduce the danger of roof fire caused by hot sparks.  An open chimney may allow airborne embers to ignite shingles, leaves and trees. 

Gutter Cleaning.   Gutters should be cleaned regularly so that they remain functional and in good condition.  Ups N Downs Services scoops the gutters free of debris and unclogs the downspouts from any blockage and then clears roof of debris.  Debris left in gutters over time can lead to flooding and water draining into your home.  Excessive weight of debris can also lead to sagging gutters that may eventually have to be replaced.

Dryer Vent Cleaning.  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that in 1998, clothes dryers were associated with 15,600 fires, which resulted in 20 deaths and 370 injuries. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers.   

Dryer vent blocked with lint reduces airflow so the dryer does not dry as efficiently as it used to.  An inefficient dryer uses more energy therefore costing you more money.
