The very first thing you think when asked the question of why you should clean your chimney, is fire; and that is definitely a good answer. However, there are other reasons to keep your chimneys clean that are not much different from reasons to keep everything else in your home clean. The main one after preventing a fire is to remove dust that can contain contaminants from the air in your home that can get into your air supply through the fireplace. Soot is extremely fine and if not contained can add to unclean conditions in your home for anyone that has breathing issues such as asthma. Making sure your chimney is cleaned annually can help reduce this issue.
We use a vacuum system that is second to none with a triple layer HEPA filter to control dust and capture any soot or residue that is released. We use brushes on rods to sweep the flue, hand brushes for the firebox and smoke chamber and thoroughly sweep the chimney from top to bottom. If we find any damage or needed repairs it is documented on video or with digital photos that can be sent to you. Once the job is completed we will leave with you a copy of the written evaluation and as long as the homeowner is present, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
