Customers sometimes ask when is the best time to schedule a chimney cleaning. The answer is spring, summer, or early fall, to ensure your chimney is clean and working by or before fireplace or furnace season.
Whether you’re a regular fireplace user or one that has had an unused system for a longer time, it’s equally important to have an inspection and a cleaning. During the time your fireplace or furnace has been unused, your chimney could have developed issues, built up debris, or become a home to nesting creatures. During your chimney inspection, if your technician finds debris, they will have a number of tools to remedy the issue.
Along with the traditional brush that may come to mind when you think of a chimney sweep, modern chimney technicians operate vacuums and other specialized tools to remove soot, creosote buildup, and other obstructions.
