Why Should I Have My Chimney Swept?

Having your chimney and fireplace annually swept is the best way to protect your family from the threat of fire. It is also the best way to protect yourself from expensive repairs in the future and extend the life of your fireplace and chimney system.

Regardless of the amount of use your chimney system and fireplace get, age, weather, and other environmental factors can wear on them and decrease their dependability and durability. When you have your chimney and fireplace annually swept, a Chief Chimney Sweep will remove any dangerous creosote deposits, clear the chimney of any obstructions or debris, and check for any areas needing repair.

Oftentimes, homeowners aren’t aware of chimney and fireplace problems until extensive damage has been done. With regular sweeping, you can catch these problems before they have time to compromise the structural stability of the chimney system and spread to the surrounding areas. Annual sweeping also gives you peace of mind when using your fireplace. You just can’t put a price on that!

Sweeping Wood-Burning Appliances

Wood-burning appliances are often enjoyed for their classic, real fire-look and high level of warmth. They are also an economical choice and can be enjoyed in power outages. However, as a fuel, wood typically produces the most by-products, including ash, smoke, and creosote. Creosote is a result of the incomplete burning of wood, and over time can become a hard, tar buildup on the walls of your fireplace and chimney. This tar substance is highly flammable, and can also decrease air flow efficiency. However, through annual sweepings, this buildup can be controlled and kept to a minimum, and your wood-burning appliance can be safely enjoyed for years to come. For more information on wood-burning appliances, check out our Wood-Burning Appliances page.

Should you have a creosote glaze problem, we have the equipment and products to safely and effectively remove the buildup without compromising your health or the well-being of your chimney system. For more information on the creosote removal process, check out our Glazed Creosote Removal page.

Sweeping Oil and Gas Appliances

Gas and oil appliances are typically cleaner burning than wood appliances and they don’t leave ash or smoke behind. They also offer the convenience of simply flipping a switch and enjoying the fire. However, it is important to have your gas or oil appliance inspected regularly to ensure that all parts are working efficiently and safely. A Chief Chimney Sweep will check for any leaks in the system or problems with the pilot light and other essential parts of the appliance.
