Why would someone need to hire a chimney sweep on a regular basis? Here are two main reasons:
Fires in the chimney. A substance called Creosote can and will build up inside of chimneys. It is extremely flammable, and is one of the things that are left behind by burning wood.
Chance of poisoning by carbon monoxide because chimneys and flues are poorly maintained, blocked or have improper ventilation
Our chimney sweep and fireplace cleaning services include a through wire brush cleaning of the flue, the firebox, the smoke shelf and chamber. A vacuum is kept handy to collect small deposits, while the larger ones will go into the firebox. At the end, we completely clean the firebox out so there is no dust or debris left behind.
