The National Fire Protection Association states, “Chimneys shall be inspected at least once a year….”
Our experience has shown us that under “normal burning conditions” it make take about two cords of wood burned in a fireplace to produce enough of creosote build-up to warrant cleaning. This is only a rule of thumb and under certain burning conditions the need for sweeping could be much sooner. When in doubt, call for a professional inspection!
All brushable creosote and soot are removed without damage to the fireplace or chimney. This include the elbows in factory built chimneys or connector pipes, which can become separated by using improperly sized or inappropriate brushes or rods. The work is done both from the outside and inside the home and using proven methods to assure that no soot or creosote escapes into the room. Drop cloths, rug runners, a high speed vacuum, tarps over the fireplace and shoe covers allow us to guarantee mess-free cleaning! All soot and creosote dislodged during the cleaning process will be removed from the smoke shelf and firebox.
Dale will also examine the fireplace and chimney and provide you with information regarding any problems or concerns discovered during the cleaning process.
