When was your chimney cleaned last?
The National Fire Protection Association states, “Chimneys should be inspected at least once a year.” When wood burns in your fireplace it produces a substance called creosote. Our years of experience have shown us that under “normal burning conditions” it takes about one cord of wood burned in a fireplace to produce enough creosote build-up to warrant cleaning. A cord of wood contains about 660-720 logs, and while this is a good rule of thumb, keep in mind that the need for sweeping could be much sooner. When in doubt, call for a professional inspection!
What is involved in a chimney sweep?
Our equipment is specifically designed for your exact type of chimney! Whether you have a large masonry fireplace, or a metal, factory-built chimney system, we have the proper equipment to remove all brush-able creosote and soot without damage to the fireplace or chimney. This includes the elbows in factory-built chimneys or connector pipes, which can become separated by using improperly sized or inappropriate brushes or rods.
The work is done both from the outside and inside the home, using proven methods to assure that no soot or creosote escapes into the room. Drop cloths, rug runners, a high-speed vacuum, tarps over the fireplace, and shoe covers allow us to guarantee mess-free cleaning! All soot and creosote dislodged during the cleaning process will be removed from the smoke shelf and firebox.
