While burning wood in your fireplace, a fine layer of creosote is slowly building on the interior walls of the chimney flue. In essence creating a very real and present fire danger to your home.
Most homeowners don’t realize when a chimney fire is in progress. When the creosote ignites it can sound like a plane simply flying over your house. In some cases an ember will make its way through a cracked flue tile into a combustible part of the chimney which can lead to an actual house fire and cause catastrophic damage to your home, belongings and possibly your family.
An annual inspection and sweep of the chimney system is recommended every year. When a chimney sweep and/or cleaning has been performed, all of this highly flammable material is removed making your fireplace once again functional to use. Some people would believe this is a costly, time consuming and messy process, when in fact it’s quite the opposite.
Our sweeps use a high powered Hepa filter vacuum that will capture all the debris and soot before it has an opportunity to enter your home, our video inspection will also detect any pesky remaining creosote so it may be safely swept away.
Most chimney cleaning appointments generally take an hour to an hour and half to complete. Our technicians and office staff are always willing and able to answer any questions you may have concerning your fireplace.
