Don’t Go Another Season Without A Chimney Cleaning & Sweeping
Did you spend most of last winter curled up next to the fireplace? Whether you burned an eighth of a cord of wood, two cords, or more, it’s important to know if a chimney sweeping is necessary before you light up another fire. The easiest way to know if it’s time for a cleaning is to schedule an annual inspection before or after each burn season. During an inspection, our team will check your flue for blockages or buildup, and let you know whether you’re good to go or if it’s time for a sweeping.

What Does A Chimney Sweeping Or Cleaning Include?
During a chimney sweeping and cleaning, our technicians will place tarps in your home to protect your belongings and prevent any soot from making its way onto your property during the process. We also use specially designed vacuums to ensure that no soot or creosote enters your home. One thing that sets us apart from other companies is that we guarantee a mess-free cleaning!
Using specially designed brushes that will not damage your fireplace or chimney, we loosen creosote and soot from the walls and lining of your chimney. We’ll then vacuum up any dislodged debris and soot on the smoke shelf and in the firebox.
What If Creosote Won’t Come Off During The Sweeping Process?
In some situations, creosote can build up as a thick glaze on the walls of your chimney system. When this happens, brushing alone will not suffice. Our technicians will need to use chemicals to remove this type of creosote. This type of creosote glaze can easily ignite and cause a chimney fire, so it’s imperative that the glaze be removed.
