      Why Schedule an Inspection & Cleaning?

      It is important to have your chimney professionally inspected and cleaned at least once a year, to ensure your safety and that your appliance is operating efficiently. Keep in mind, the more you use your fireplace, the more often it should be cleaned.

      Here are three common reasons to have an inspection or cleaning even sooner:

      • If you are selling your home.
      • If you’re having issues with your chimney (i.e. the draft, smell of smoke, etc.).
      • If there has been damage to your chimney.

      Why Opt for a Certified Technician?

      While you should regularly clean out your chimney after use, such as sweeping away collecting ash, a chimney cleaning by a certified technician will help with the following:

      • Build-Up: A chimney sweep will remove the build-up of a substance called creosote. It is highly flammable and acidic, and it can corrode mortar, brick, flue tiles, and metal pipe. In addition, the smoke and vapors from this substance are highly toxic. Not to mention, it is a major cause of chimney fires every year!
      • Blockages: If you have debris or nesting animals blocking your chimney, we can suggest an animal removal company, if needed. After this, we will conduct a thorough sweep to remove them, therefore lowering the risk of fire and carbon monoxide build-up in your home.
      • Bills: A clean chimney means your system will work better overall. This will lead to lower heating costs for your family!

      What You Should Expect

      A typical chimney cleaning takes 1-2 hours. And don’t worry about any mess during or after. We utilize a HEPA filtered cleaning system and cover the area with drop clothes.
