Chimney Cleaning

Why Do I Need the Chimney Cleaned?

As your fireplace is being used, creosote rises and then builds up in your chimney. Creosote build up increases your chances of having a chimney fire or dangerous blockage that can make you sick... or worse.


Having your chimney cleaned once a year should be on your list of yearly home maintenance even if that fireplace isn’t being used regularly.

Chimney Cleaning is Vital for Home Safety

A cleaning (also known as sweeping) will help you identify and eliminate fire hazards, uncover potential structural damage, and possibly find and remove disease-carrying animals.


Whether you are buying a new home or have lived in your current one for many years, right now is the time for a chimney inspection.  Your safety depends on it!
