Chimney Sweeping 101
Burning wood creates byproducts such as soot and creosote that must be expelled through your chimney and out of your home. Creosote is a highly flammable tar-like substance, and even the smallest amount in your flue can start a chimney fire. Annual chimney sweepings are recommended to remove these substances and keep your fireplace system operating efficiently. During a chimney sweep, we remove any of these harmful substances in a timely and professional manner. We will also perform a basic inspection to determine the condition of your system. If anything else is awry, we recommend any other necessary repairs.
Many are concerned about the potential mess after a chimney sweeping. When one of our technicians sweeps your chimney, we guarantee your home will be left as clean as when we arrived. We lay drop cloths to protect the floor and surrounding furniture from soot, dirt, dust, and various debris.
