Chimney Sweep Tips

  • A sweep and inspection is recommended annually or during a real estate sale or transfer.

  • No fires at least 24 hours before your appointment. This allows it to cool before the appointment.

  • We use tarps to protect your home from ash, soot and dust. Furniture will be moved if necessary.

  • A professional vacuum will be used to control ash and soot.

  • Upon completion, you’ll see no soot or ash, and no indication that anyone has been inside your house working on your chimney.

  • We usually sweep from inside your home using a brush fitted to the interior of your flue attached to a flexible rod system. All of the loosened soot and creosote will be contained and none will escape into your air or onto your furnishings. We remove the loosened soot and creosote from the system with a vacuum or shovel.

  • You will receive a report on the condition of your fireplace and chimney system. If the technician noted any damage or indication that your system needs repair before use, he will explain this to you.
