The Process of Cleaning Your Chimney

At the start of every chimney or fireplace cleaning, we conduct a comprehensive 21 point inspection that involves inspecting the entire length of the fireplace structure and providing a detailed report. To prepare for the cleaning process, our technician will place a protective cover in front of your fireplace and use a heavy-duty vacuum to clean up all dirt and debris, including soot and creosote buildup on the bricks. The technician will then use brushes and sturdy rods to eliminate any remaining creosote and complete the sweep. The entire cleaning process typically takes less than two hours, and we guarantee that there will be no mess left behind, ensuring a hassle-free experience for our customers.
