Chimney Sweeping Services

Sweeping your chimney flue is a crucial part of home maintenance that ensures that your chimney flue does not accumulate harmful creosote. Creosote is toxic and can create a fire hazard if not regularly swept out. If you are a particularly light user this maintenance schedule can be extended to 18 months. For heavy users we recommend that the flue be swept after each cord of wood burned. Sooty odors in the home can also indicate the need for a sweep.

 

The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that homeowners have their flues swept and inspected annually.

A Typical Residential Sweep Service

We schedule our appointments in a 2 hour arrival window to ensure timely service.

  • Upon arrival our technician will review with you the planned service for the day.
  • A thorough and dust-free sweep is performed, typically from the bottom-up. We find that bottom-up sweeping is the safest and most efficient method. We use a variety of brushes to suit the particular needs of your system, including poly and metal brushes and even mechanical processes. All excess creosote and debris is removed from the flue.
  • After sweeping the system, we do a thorough inspection of the chimney looking for safety problems or issues that could prevent peak performance.
  • Before we leave we review our findings with you and provide a written inspection report detailing our findings.
  • At your request, we can also provide a written proposal for any needed repairs.

We have maintenance services available to meet the needs of any residential system, including:

  • Annual Pre-Scheduled Sweep and Inspection Service
