Protect Your Family, Home & Chimney System With Routine Chimney Sweeping From Sweeps & Ladders Chimney Service
Our chimneys and fireplaces can bring us decades of warmth and comfort when well-maintained —but like anything else, they need regular maintenance and cleanings. Keeping your chimney system clean and free of flammable deposits (like creosote) and blockages helps prevent chimney fires and keeps you and your family safer. Regular cleanings also help keep your chimney and fireplace in excellent condition so you can enjoy them longer.
How Often Should I Have My Chimney Cleaned?
Wondering how often you should have your chimney cleaned? Here at Sweeps & Ladders, we operate using the guidelines spelled out in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 211 standard. The NFPA recommends that you have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney sweep on an annual basis.
Cleanings can be done any time of year, but scheduling your chimney cleaning after the burn season or during the warmer months of the year can make scheduling a lot easier for you and your family. Everyone’s thinking about their fireplaces as they get ready for Thanksgiving and the holidays, so we can get pretty busy during the fall and winter months!
What Does A Chimney Cleaning Involve?
Here at Sweeps & Ladders Chimney Service, we have a detailed and thorough chimney cleaning process that starts at the bottom and ends at the top. We first clean out your firebox, smoke chamber, and flue liner, and then perform a detailed rooftop inspection of the crown/chase cover, masonry work, chimney cap, and flashing. If there’s any damage that needs to be repaired or areas of concern, we make note of them and share them with you in our full report, which includes pictures of our work.
