Why Does My Chimney Need To Be Cleaned?
Excess creosote is the most common chimney problem and the main reason people have their chimneys cleaned. Creosote is produced by burning wood. Soft wood (pine, self-starting logs, plywood) produce more creosote than hard wood (oak, aspen, fir) which produce less creosote. Excess build-up of creosote causes fires in the flue and cleaning should be done when creosote buildup reaches 1/8”.
More serious chimney problems include insufficient drawing, downdrafts or sparks flying out the top. Solutions include making the chimney taller (we don’t do), opening the damper or repairing the damper (which we do), or adding wind or spark devices to the chimney’s top (which is called capping, and we do that too!)
Pricing & Scheduling
Some factors to consider when pricing chimney cleaning:
- Where is the property located?
- Is it a multi-unit residential complex?
- How many stories is the chimney?
- Is it a wood burning fireplace, a freestanding stove or a an insert?
