Fireplace & Chimney Maintenance
I use professional equipment to clean your chimney. While sweeping your system, I ensure that it’s in working order. I look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and safely. Any potential hazards or problems that may be found in your system will be pointed out. If necessary, the Chim-Scan closed circuit camera inspection system can allow you to see the condition of the interior of your chimney flue.
We seal off the fireplace opening, a vacuum will be running inside the fireplace, and a drop cloth/rug-runner(s) will be placed on the floor. The soot and creosote deposits are cleaned off the walls of the flue and the smoke chamber with power tools and brushes attached to flexible poles. The smoke shelf, and inner hearth are thoroughly vacuumed of creosote.
Our methods insure that there is no mess in your home, in fact I guarantee it. The cleaning process may take an hour or more per fireplace. Our industry recommends yearly inspections and maintenance as needed, depending on usage. It is highly recommended that you have your system inspected when you move into a new home.
