The Importance of Chimney Maintenance
Chimneys and fireplaces require regular inspections and cleaning to ensure safe, healthy operation and to avoid potential risks such as chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Chimneys work by a draft drawing dangerous combustion gases and poisonous carbon monoxide from your fireplace, and up the chimney to expel them outside, safely away from your living space and the air you breath.
During regular chimney use, debris, ashes, soot, and a layer of flammable creosote accumulate in the chimney and fireplace. Having your chimney swept and cleaned greatly reduces the risk of a dangerous chimney fire, and keeps toxic fumes out of your living space.
With our sweep service the chimney and firebox are cleaned using a variety of specialized chimney cleaning tools. Soot and debris are removed to help prevent build-up of creosote, a major cause of chimney fires, and a complete damage inspection is performed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bare minimum, your chimney or other wood burning system should be swept or inspected one per year.
If your fireplace is used extensively (ie: 50+ times), a second cleaning may be required. If you’re not sure about the accumulated use of your chimney, request an additional inspection – just to be safe. We’ll give you an honest evaluation and let you know if your chimney needs a second cleaning or not.
We guarantee no mess during or after the chimney sweep. Our sweep will use a high-efficiency vacuum with a HEPA filter and uses a new drop sheet for every job.
We perform 95% of sweeps and chimney cleaning from inside.
There are a few exceptions. For example, we sweep wood burning systems from the top because open wood burning fireplaces don’t just go straight up; they have a smoke chamber. The smoke chamber is intricate and needs to be cleaned properly from inside.
On average a chimney sweep usually takes about an 1 hour. Some systems and circumstances may vary. Use our chimney quote form to get in touch with a chimney sweep who can ask you a few questions to help give you an estimated time for your chimney system.
