Chimney cleanings, which are essential to eliminate creosote build-up, reduce the chances of a chimney fire. Chimney fires can burn hot enough to crack a flue, allowing flames to leap through to combustible areas of your home. Professional cleanings and thorough inspections are the heart of our service.
Annual chimney inspections allow the chimney sweep to note cracks, creosote buildup or other obstructions which may diminish the functionality of the system and create an environment where chimney fires or carbon monoxide intrusion are likely.
