Chimney Cleaning-Sweeping

We provide chimney cleaning for all types of applications. From Fireplaces, Free Standing Woodstove, Woodstove Inserts, Pellet Stoves and gas fireplaces.  Listed below is a quick run-down on how we clean each application.

Open Fireplace

We lay out tarps from the front door to the fireplace protecting your floors and home.  We than will bring in some equipment and will head to the roof.  Next we will clean off the chimney cap and will run brushes from the top down. Once this is completed we will head in doors. The majority of your build up is in an area called your smoke shelf, which is right above the damper. We than will run brushes up in the smoke shelf area.   At this point everything we have cleaned has fallen behind the damper in the pit area.  We than will vacuum out the pit area to remove the creosote that has fallen. Next we will clean out the firebox.  As we are cleaning the chimney we also inspect the chimney for any safety concerns.  If we notice anything of concern we will discuss at time of service. This cleaning and inspection process takes approx. an hour

Fireplace Insert With Liner

Once the top section has been cleaned from the roof, we than head inside. The inside of an insert there usually is a baffle plate or a layer of bricks.  We than remove this to allow everything we have swept to be removed properly. We than will clean the inside roof and walls of the insert along with the glass if you have one. The last thing we will do is wipe down the outside of the stove and do a visual inspection to make sure everything is safe and is in working condition. This cleaning & Inspection takes approximately an hour

Fireplace Insert without liner

Once the top section has been cleaned from the roof we head inside.  Next we will remove the insert out of the firebox using an insert puller.  This will allow us to get into the fireplace to properly remove the creosote that is built up. The majority of your build up is in the smoke shelf area above the damper.  We than will run up brushes to remove the buildup. At this point everything we have cleaned has fallen behind the damper in the pit area.  We than will remove all of the creosote that has fallen. Next we will clean out the firebox and will re-install the insert back into the fireplace. Next we will clean out the stove, glass and exterior. This cleaning and inspection process takes approximately 2 or more hours to do.

Gas Fireplaces

Once the top section has been cleaned we head inside. Majority of your build up is in an area called your smoke shelf.  This area is located right above your damper and can only be properly cleaned from the inside.  We run up brushes to clean out this area. At this point everything we have cleaned so far has fallen behind the damper. Next we will remove the fallen creosote and will clean out the firebox as well. We also clean off the logs and put them back.  Once the entire chimney has been cleaned from top to bottom we will go over any concerns or recommendations.  This cleaning and inspection process takes approximately an hour to complete.

Free Standing Woodstove

Once the top section has been cleaned we head inside the home.  On the inside of a woodstove there is a baffle plate or a layer of bricks.  We than will remove so we clean the fallen creosote. Next we will remove the buildup on the top of the stove as well as the walls. Once that is completed we put everything back together. Next we will clean out the stove itself and will clean off the buildup on the glass. Lastly we will wipe down the stove.  This cleaning and inspection process takes approximately an hour
