Chimney Cleaning & Our Chimney Cleaning Services

Our New Jersey chimney cleaning services include the sweeping of the flue, smoke chambers, smoke shelves, damper, as well as the firebox area. The chimney cleaning is all done with brushes on fiberglass poles. A runner is laid down up to the fireplace as well as drop cloths so nothing is tracked on any carpeting at all. The heart of the chimney sweeping system is a  chimney vacuum running during the sweeping for proper dust control. While it is being swept the chimney is inspected for any cracks or other defects and you are given a written evaluation report listing any areas of concern and any chimney repairs that you should consider.

 

Why Clean Your Chimney?

Having a professional inspect and clean your chimney in a thorough way is essential for health and safety reasons. A major cause of chimney and house fires is due to faulty or dirty chimneys. Needless to say, who wants to put their family safety at risk?

 

Some indicators that may suggest your chimney is in need of a cleaning:

  • Burning wood or other odors coming from the chimney during times on non use
  • Poorly burning fires
  • Smoke filling your house or room during use
  • Gunk, Black Stuff, or other things in your damper
  • You have not had your chimney cleaned since the stone age – this could be a giveaway
