Our chimney cleaning service is done carefully for a mess-free experience.
There are two main dangers involved with operating your fireplace without having regular chimney cleaning performed. The first is that you could experience a chimney fire when the built-up creosote catches fire. The second is that a proper draw of smoke and carbon monoxide isn’t achieved, allowing both of these to reverse course into the dwelling.
At Swept Away Chimney, we recommend annual chimney cleaning for the fireplace at your Acworth, Georgia home or business, although more often might be necessary with constant use of the fireplace or using improperly dried firewood. The rule of thumb is that burning one cord of wood produces enough creosote to warrant having the chimney cleaned, but we are happy to assess your fireplace and chimney’s condition and your usage habits, to determine the best schedule for your situation. You can also call for a chimney inspection if you would like peace of mind that it is clean and there aren’t any other problems.
We are very thorough with our chimney cleaning. Our process inspects and cleans all accessible portions of both the interior and exterior of the chimney. We also check the chimney liner for any missing joints, gaps, or cracks, as well as check for any fire safety hazards. We utilize custom-designed brushes that clean the chimney safely without causing any damage. This is critical especially at elbows and connections. We use more delicate hand tools made specifically for the task to clean the damper, smoke chamber, smoke shelf, firebox, and grate.
While chimney cleaning is a messy job, we take great care to keep it contained. We use drop cloths, tarps, rug runners, shoe covers, and a high-speed vacuum to ensure the soot doesn’t escape our removal process. You should expect a mess-free chimney cleaning process, and that is what we deliver.
