Reasons to inspect & clean your chimney

1. Chimney Sweep for Creosote Removal

Our customers in and around Winchester, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama, rely on our certified chimney sweeps to rid their chimneys of flammable creosote. Creosote is formed every time a wood fire burns, and the more of it there is in your chimney, the more likely a chimney fire is to start.

When we perform chimney cleaning, we use a variety of tools and equipment such as electronic devices with chains, cables and brushes as well as scrapers, solvents and vacuums. We’re experienced in removing all forms of creosote including solid, sticky, puffy and flakey, all of which can ignite and do serious damage to your chimney and home.

2. Chimney Obstruction Removal

Over time – and especially if you’ve been using your chimney without a secure chimney cap – all types of debris can get into the flue. Commonly we find a buildup of leaves and twigs from nearby trees and the nests of small animals, who often use chimneys as birthing grounds.

All added debris inside the chimney flue restricts proper air flow and can cause fires in the fireplace to be difficult to start and maintain. Obstructions also can grow to the point that smoke begins to back up into the home. Smoke is bad enough, but it carries with it deadly carbon monoxide, which is invisible and odorless. Our chimney sweeps will safely clear your flue of all obstructions.

It’s impossible for average homeowners to spot every problem with their chimneys, so our customers in the Winchester, TN, area count on us to do it for them. The CSIA-certified chimney inspectors we send to your home will use their years of visual and hands-on experience as well as specialized video technology to assess the condition of your entire chimney and all its components.
