Our Step By step chimney cleaning process

  • The first step in the chimney cleaning process is an inspection

    The inspection will determine if there are any repairs that need to be done as well as how built up the creosote is in the chimney. – We will inspect your fireplace and firebox, damper, chimney interior, exterior and top including the cap.

  • Second step of the chimney cleaning process

    We protect both your home interior and the work environment.
    Using drop cloths and state of the art HEPA filtered Vacuum systems to contain soot, debris and dust, for a NO MESS GUARANTEE PROCESS!

  • Third Step

    We use brushes and extendable rods to sweep the flue, hand brushes for the fireplace firebox and smoke chamber. Chimney Cleaning Charlotte sweeps the inside of your chimney, from the firebox floor all the way to the chimney top. Than we change the direction of the rotor brush and run the brushes back down in to the fireplace. We repeat this process as needed.

  • The fourth Step is post inspection

    The final step – we provide a written report upon completion to serve as a record of the service performed and to document any recommendations and repairs that may be needed based on the inspection findings.

Getting ready for your chimney sweeping appointment is simple

  • Avoid having a fire for at least 24 hours prior to your appointment
  • Move furniture or any breakable items away from the area around your stove or fireplace — about 6ft-8ft
  • And confine your pets in another room, away from the work area

Frequently asked questions

Q. Will cleaning my chimney get dust all over my house?

A. Absolutely Not! We contain the mess by means of proper-sized brushes and rods, tarps and a heavy-duty vacuum system designed specifically for dust control. As long-standing professionals in this community, we take pride in our service and our impeccable reputation.

Q. How often should I have my chimney cleaned?

A. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that you have your chimney inspected every year and cleaned as needed. Even if a chimney is rarely used or exhausts a clean burning natural gas appliance, it could be blocked with an animal nest or the structure could have deteriorated to the point where the chimney is unsafe to use.

Gas burning device chimneys should be inspected every year.

Oil furnace chimneys should be inspected annually and cleaned as needed.

Wood burning fireplaces should be inspected annually and cleaned as needed.

Woodstoves are typically used more frequently than fireplaces. Many woodstove chimneys actually require cleaning twice a year.

Q. Should I cover my furniture and rugs?

A. There’s really no need for you to cover anything. We take special precautions to make sure soot will not damage your valuable home furnishings. These steps include everything from spreading plenty of clean drop cloths to using only true HEPA rated vacuums.

Q. What makes my fireplace stink in the summer?

A. The sour wood smoke odor you smell is creosote inside a dirty chimney reacting with hot, humid summer air or rain entering the chimney. The best way to eliminate this odor is to clean the chimney to remove the creosote. Installing a chimney cap to deflect rain may also be required.

Q. Do I need to service a chimney with a gas logs?

A. Yes, gas logs also give off a carbon soot that can collect on the logs, safety controls, and the flue. The CSIA and NFPA associations recommend these units be inspected and serviced annually.

Q. Does the chimney sweeping log work?

A. The question is do you rinse your teeth with mouthwash or do you actually brush your teeth. And even if you brush, do you still go to the dentist to have a checkup. A chimney sweep will check your fireplace system and also complete the brushing that the chimney sweeping log cannot do.

Q. How long will it take for my chimney to be cleaned?

A. This will vary from chimney to chimney but you can plan on between 60 to 90 minutes.
