A chimney sweep will do a complete chimney cleaning to get rid of any kind of deposits, soot, creosote, as well as obstructions from the chimney. Dirty, damaged deteriorating, and obstructed chimneys cause injuries as well as fires each year. If you use you fireplace or wood burning stove, the National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney inspected and also swept once a year in order to prevent fires.

What does a chimney sweep do?

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

Step 1: Safeguarding

To begin, a cleaning specialist will protect the inside of your home by spreading tarps over the space, flooring, as well as hearth. They will cover the fire place with plastic sheets, putting an industrial vacuum cleaner hose pipe right into the fireplace, and will then tape and seal off the fireplace. They'll connect extension tubes and run them to the industrial vacuum cleaner with a fine micron filter which sits outdoors. This will trap the fine residue, creosote, and other dirt later on.

Step 2: Sweeping

Next, they will brush the whole chimney with hand held brushes, and also brushes with extension rods. Generally they will begin at the top of the chimney and work downward, thoroughly cleaning all the surface areas. Your chimney sweep will clean the flue, the damper, the smoke chamber, the smoke shelf, and the firebox.

Step 3: Tidy 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 cleaned up. The vinyl sheeting and tarps will be relocated outside, cleaned and put away.

Our expert chimney specialists provide a full variety of services including sweeping. We provide quick and reliable service.

What exactly is creosote?

Creosote is a brown, oily, tar-like material which develops from burning wood or coal. It starts as a loose, downy accumulation which in the beginning can be brushed away easily. As it accumulates more, it comes to be tar-like, and is harder to eliminate, occasionally requiring the use of scrapers to remove it. If left uncleaned, and more layers develop, the creosote hardens.

When a fire is burned in the fireplace or wood stove, the smoke comes to be extremely hot. Hardened creosote can begin to drip and also melt like wax. Once the build up of creosote is extremely hefty, it restricts the air movement via the chimney flue. The restricted air circulation causes creosote to accumulate even faster.

Is creosote hazardous?

Creosote is dangerous in a couple of different ways. It's toxic and dangerous for your health, and it places your residence in jeopardy of fires.

Carbon Monoxide

Creosote accumulation triggers decreased air flow and this can permit carbon monoxide gas to build up inside your home while a fire is burning. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and also colorless gas which can cause flu-like symptoms, and can also bring about death.

Creosote Toxicity

Besides the carbon monoxide accumulation, creosote itself is toxic. It could cause irritated skin and eyes, respiratory system problems, and is carcinogenic (cancer causing).

Fire Danger

The most hazardous aspect of creosote is that it is extremely flammable. It's the most common cause of chimney fires. While chimneys are made to withstand a high level of heat, the intensity of a chimney fire can rapidly exceed this degree.

Exactly How to Get Rid of Creosote

Getting a chimney sweep performed is the very best and also most reliable means to eliminate creosote. Our licensed chimney service companies take excellent care of your chimney as well as your home. We recommend that you get your chimney cleaned and inspected at the very least annually in order to avoid fires and toxic build up.

Just how often should my chimney be cleaned?

Exactly how frequently a chimney needs to be cleaned depends of exactly how often you use it and also what materials you burn within. Gas burning fireplaces must be checked every year. Although they burn cleaner, dampness, debris, cracks and various other problems can develop which can allow carbon monoxide gas to enter the home.

Oil burning flues should be cleaned once a year to keep residue from developing.

Due to the fact that wood burning fireplaces and stoves produce more soot and creosote, they should be swept much more often. A good rule of thumb is to have your chimney swept after a cord of wood has been burned within.
