Chimney & Fireplace Sweeping & Cleaning
A dirty fireplace is not good for your home or your health. When your fireplace gets too dirty, it can have a negative impact on the air quality of your home, not to mention create a fire hazard. It only takes as little as one cord of wood burned in your fireplace to build up enough soot to warrant a cleaning. For this reason, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that you have your chimney cleaned and inspected each year.
When it comes to chimney cleaning, the Fluesbrothers have you covered. We’ve been cleaning chimneys for nearly three decades and we have our process down to an art. We specialize in cleaning the following heating appliances:
- Wood stoves
- Pellet stoves
- Furnace/Utility/HVAC flues
- Gas fireplaces & inserts
Our technicians are trained and educated to the standards set by the National Chimney Sweeps Guild, so you can rest assured that the work done in your home will be safe, efficient and professional.
Regular gas log fireplace maintenance is just as important as chimney maintenance.
The Chimney Sweeping & Cleaning Process
We will brush your chimney using the appropriate equipment, which includes special rods, chimney brushes, hand brushes and a high-speed vacuum. Using these tools, we will remove all of the brushable soot and creosote without damaging your fireplace or causing a mess in your home. We use drop cloths, rug runners and tarps to protect your furniture and floors. Using a high-speed vacuum, we remove all the brushable soot and creosote as quickly as possible so that your home stays clean and mess-free. Our technicians use a very careful process to treat your home with respect and make sure to leave it in excellent condition when your chimney cleaning is complete.
During your cleaning, our technicians will also inspect the fireplace and chimney and notify you of any concerns. Every Fluesbrothers technician has the expertise to diagnose your chimney problem and offer recommendations regarding the care and maintenance of your chimney.
A clean chimney will burn more efficiently, saving energy and adding value to your home. Call Fluesbrothers today to schedule your cleaning or click here to schedule an appointment online.
Creosote is highly flammable, and needs to be removed regularly from your chimney.
