Ah! The good old chimney sweep! Most readers here, even the baby boomers, living longer lives than their forefathers, are probably too young to remember such a man coming by their houses at night. Indeed, it is more than likely that the old chimney sweep had already become a gone and forgotten species. But in the smoky, dusty city of Baltimore, Maryland, the chimney sweep maryland van is still making its rounds.
The good old chimney sweep, over the years, has become a highly skilled artisan. He is now armed to the teeth with all the new technologies that most other artisanal industries are utilizing. Take this technology, for instance. Here you have the specialist plumbing technician who is required to go beyond ground to begin the process of repairing busted or worn-out piping systems. It is not easy work.
And it can be quite dangerous too. Instead of going belowground, the technician is able to lower a remote-controlled camera system. Above the ground, he’ll be able to interrogate done damage and from thereon monitor all robotic repair work. Similar processes of safety and efficiency are now possible for the chimney sweep. There is also just no way that he will be able to lower himself down or climb up so many chimneys.
The vents are just too narrow. So down goes the camera equipment for starters. Or up it goes. Yes, that’s quite right, folks. Not only is the chimney sweep cleaning sooty old chimneys. He’s repairing them too. He does the chimney’s exteriors as well, repairing the broken tiles that have been neglected for, oh, so very long. By the time he’s finished doing the rounds, perhaps more people will start making use of their chimneys again.
