There is no safe “Golden Rule” on how often you should have your chimney swept. There are many variables including age, wood moisture levels and long-term maintenance including the condition of the chimney cap or chase cover. With normal use of a fireplace as a primary heat source, once a year will typically suffice. It all depends on the formation of creosote in the chimney. Our certified chimney sweep technician will clear the soot, dust and scrape the creosote build-up within the chimney walls. We use a powerful vacuum and covers to control dust while the chimney is being swept to ensure your rooms stay perfectly clean. Our technicians clean of the cap, flue, smoke shelf, smoke chamber, damper and firebox.
