Chimney Cleaning: Make a Clean Sweep

Like any other part of your home, regular maintenance and cleaning will ensure optimal performance of your chimney. FlueTech can be your partner in maintaining not only your chimney, but the safety and comfort of your home.

Annual Cleanings Ensure Safety

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends a chimney and fireplace inspection once a year to check for soundness, correct clearances, and buildup. If you use your fireplace a lot, soot and creosote, a thick and sticky byproduct of burning wood or fuel, can build up to dangerous levels. This can put your home at risk for a devastating chimney fire. Without proper air flow, carbon monoxide can back up into the home, leading to tragic results.

Even if your fireplace isn’t used frequently, birds, raccoons, and other critters feel all too comfortable about making your chimney their home. Nesting materials can create a dangerous situation by blocking the flow of air.

Chimney Cleanings Improve Performance

Has it been a while since your chimney was inspected? It may be giving you signs that it’s time. If you have trouble burning fires, have smoke backing up into the house, or notice any unpleasant odors, it’s time to call Flue Tech. Flue Tech will help you get ahead of problems before they become real (and costly.) We take it one step further than the NFPA’s recommendation – have your chimney cleaned when it needs to be cleaned, rather than waiting for an annual appointment.

Plan Your Cleaning Before Fall

While we perform inspections and cleanings year-round, the best time to schedule chimney maintenance is before the weather turns cool and you’re ready to fire up your system. Depending on your situation, a regular chimney cleaning should take about an hour. Our certified chimney sweeps work quickly and thoroughly with minimal disruption to your day. We pride ourselves on leaving your home exactly the way we found it – with a cleaner chimney, of course.
