Chimney & Fireplace Sweeping & Cleaning

Basic Chimney Sweep Set Up

No matter how often you use your fireplace, it’s important to make sure your chimney is safe to use and functioning properly. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that chimneys be cleaned and inspected at least once a year—and we agree completely. There are several good reasons to make an annual chimney cleaning and inspection part of your regular home maintenance routine. The most important reason is for your health and safety.

When you burn wood in a fireplace it produces creosote, a dangerous and highly-combustible byproduct that builds up on the walls of your chimney. To reduce your risk of a devastating chimney fire, this creosote should be removed regularly. Dirty chimneys can be extremely dangerous and deadly. They are why most chimneys catch on fire and are easily preventable. Every year millions of dollars of property are lost because of simple negligence. Having your chimney and fireplace cleaned is very affordable in every market in the US.

The Silent Killer

If you need another good reason to clean your chimney, we can sum it up in two words—carbon monoxide. This dangerous gas can escape from a damaged or dirty chimney, causing illness or death. This normally happens due to cracks in the flue liner that allow the gas to escape into the home. Many chimneys run parallel to bedrooms and, because CO is tasteless and odorless, no one ever knows there is a problem. Video inspections can catch this issue so you have the information you need to decide the best course of action.
