Chimney Sweeping is a delicate process that utilizes specialized chimney sweeping equipment that ensures everything is thoroughly cleaned and no debris is left behind. This includes your fireplace brick and glass, chimney caps and your flue pipes. Chimney Sweeping is the best way to ensure that your fireplace is as clean and as safe as possible. When chimneys are neglected, this leads to a dangerous safety hazard in your home. The build up of a substance called Creosote will occur during the continued use of your fireplace, which is highly flammable and could easily lead to a dangerous chimney fire. To be proactive in your chimneys wellbeing, we recommend cleaning your chimney when you've gone through three and a half to four cords of firewood to be safe.
