Chimney sweeps are skilled professionals who specialize in removing debris from the insides of chimneys.
When you think about chimney sweeps, your mind might conjure up images of Dick Van Dyke’s character in “Mary Poppins,” carrying a metal cleaning tool and bearing a layer of soot from head to toe. Although most modern-day chimney sweeps dress a little differently and use different tools, the job is still similar and quite important for those who have chimneys in their homes and businesses. Chimney sweeps are skilled professionals who specialize in removing debris from the insides of chimneys. Here in Acworth, Georgia and much of the surrounding area, you can rely on our team at Swept Away Chimney for all your chimney needs, including regular sweeping.
Keeping up with chimney sweeping is critical for a few key reasons. The first is your safety – a chimney that isn’t cleaned properly on a regular basis often contains a buildup of combustible materials, increasing fire risk. When the chimney contains too much debris, it can no longer allow the smoke and other fire-related byproducts to exit the structure, which also increases the risk of carbon monoxide going back into the living space. Certain materials produced by an open flame are extremely damaging to the materials used to construct a chimney, so letting them sit on the interior walls can lead to corrosion, shortening its lifespan.
