According to data sourced from the National Fire Protection Association, it is estimated that one structure fire is reported every 85 seconds. The research further states that the leading factor contributing to home heating fires is the failure to clean, principally creosote from solid-fueled heating equipment, primarily chimneys.
Duct X is an American family-run company on a mission to save as many homes from heating fires by delivering premier chimney cleaning and maintenance-oriented services.
The company has served thousands of clients across San Antonio, Houston, and Austin for over a decade, and continues to upgrade its gear and refine its services without pause.
What helped Duct X reach and maintain its position as the premier regional chimney-cleaning service is the inclusive approach to its customers. The company is built on the pillars of transparency, which Duct X’s spokesperson described as follows:
“Our top priority is to keep you in the loop. We will do our best to make sure you understand everything that we do, whether it’s about schedule changes, delays, misunderstood information, estimates, payment methods, photo descriptions of your estimate, and more,” said the company’s spokesperson.
Duct X’s core service revolves around chimney repairs and maintenance. From chase & cap replacements, over chimney cleaning, to flash repairs, the company’s full-spectrum chimney maintenance ensures unparalleled protection against heating fires.
The company’s experts are also trained to remove creosote and repair the masonry on and surrounding chimneys. The structural integrity of a chimney vastly influences its efficiency and safety, which Duct X’s professionals strive to maintain in pristine condition for its customers.
Duct X’s spokesperson imparts that regular chimney sweeps are crucial for maintaining a long chimney life, stating the following:
“Did you know that chimneys and fireboxes should be cleaned at least once a year before the burning season? If a fireplace works on a regular basis, the condensation from the rising heat sticks the residue to the inside of the chimney, which will create a thick layer of creosote inside the chimney flue. Creosote is a highly flammable substance that is considered a fire hazard and needs to be addressed immediately,” said Duct X’s spokesperson.
Aside from top-tier chimney cleaning services, Duct X also offers a host of AC & Dryer services, encompassing but not limited to air duct cleaning, attic insulation, HVAC repair, and dryer vent cleaning.
To ensure its clients’ homes are safe from sub-zero temperatures and dangerous weather conditions, Duct X provides a range of attic insulation services. Quick, efficient, and fire-proof, Duct X’s insulation solutions are engineered to reinforce its core chimney repair services.
