A chimney sweep will do a thorough chimney cleaning to eliminate any type of deposits, soot, creosote, as well as obstructions from the chimney. Dirty, damaged deteriorating, and blocked chimneys cause injuries and also fires each year. If you use you fire place or wood burning stove, the National Fire Protection Association advises having your chimney checked and swept once-a-year in order to prevent fires.

What does a chimney sweep do?

A chimney service expert will execute a complete cleaning of your chimney. Cleaning logs are truly ineffective and are not advised. They will not get all the soot and creosote accumulation out of the chimney like hand cleaning.

Step 1: Safeguarding

To begin, a cleaning professional will protect the inside of your home by spreading tarps over the room, floor, and fireplace. They will cover the fire place with plastic sheeting, placing an commercial vacuum tube into the fire place, and will then tape and also seal the fire place. They'll connect extension pipes and run them to the commercial vacuum with a fine micron filter which sits outside. This will catch the fine soot, creosote, and other dirt later on.

Step 2: Sweeping

Next, they will brush the entire chimney with hand held brushes, as well as brushes with extension rods. Normally they will start at the top of the smokeshaft and work downward, thoroughly cleaning all the surfaces. Your chimney sweep will clean the flue, the damper, the smoke chamber, the smoke shelf, and the firebox.

Step 3: Clean Up

They will then peel back a little portion of the vinyl sheet and use a range of brushes inside. Following this, everything will be vacuumed and also cleaned up. The plastic sheeting and tarps will be relocated outside, cleared off and tucked back into their vehicle.

Our professional chimney specialists provide a complete range of services including sweeping. We offer quick as well as reliable service.

What exactly is creosote?

Creosote is a brown, oily, tar-like compound which develops from burning wood or coal. It begins as a loose, downy accumulation which initially can be brushed away easily. As it builds up more, it ends up being tar-like, and is harder to eliminate, in some cases requiring the use of scrapers to remove it. If left uncleaned, and even more layers develop, the creosote hardens.

When a fire is burned in the fireplace or wood stove, the smoke becomes very hot. Hardened creosote can start to drip and melt like wax. As soon as the build up of creosote is really hefty, it limits the air movement via the chimney flue. The restricted air flow causes creosote to build up even faster.

Is creosote unsafe?

Creosote is hazardous in a number of various ways. It's toxic and unsafe for your health, and it puts your house in jeopardy of fires.

Carbon Monoxide

Creosote accumulation triggers lessened air movement and this can enable carbon monoxide to build up inside your house while a fire is burning. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas which can cause flu-like symptoms, and can also cause death.

Creosote Toxicity

Besides the carbon monoxide accumulation, creosote itself is toxic. It can trigger irritated skin and eyes, respiratory issues, and is carcinogenic (cancer triggering).

Fire Danger

The most unsafe feature of creosote is that it is unbelievably combustible. It's the most common cause of chimney fires. While chimneys are made to withstand a high level of heat, the strength of a chimney fire can quickly exceed this degree.

Exactly How to Eliminate Creosote

Getting a chimney sweep carried out is the best as well as most effective method to eliminate creosote. Our qualified chimney service companies take excellent care of your chimney as well as your residence. We advise that you get your chimney cleaned and checked a minimum of once a year in order to prevent fires and harmful build up.

Just how often should my chimney be cleaned?

Just how frequently a chimney must be cleaned depends of how frequently you use it as well as what materials you burn within. Gas burning fireplaces need to be checked yearly. Although they burn cleaner, dampness, particles, fractures and various other issues can develop which can permit carbon monoxide gas to enter the house.

Oil burning flues ought to be cleaned yearly to keep residue from accumulating.

Since wood burning fire places and stoves produce even more soot and creosote, they should be swept more regularly. A good general rule is to have your chimney swept after a cord of wood has been burned inside.
