Chimney Cleaning Services By CSIA Certified Professionals Near You
Is an annual chimney cleaning necessary?
Annual chimney inspections are recommended by the National Fire Protection Association and every other fire safety organization. Chimney inspections ensure that your chimney is ready for another season of burning by informing the homeowner if any damages have occurred, or whether there are buildups that need to be cleaned out. Assuming any damages or buildups have accumulated, a chimney cleaning or repairs should come before starting a fire. Chimney cleanings help keep your chimney safe from chimney fires by clearing out soot, creosote, debris or other buildup.
What happens during a chimney cleaning?
- Chimney sweepings and cleanings keep soot, debris, and creosote from building up. An accumulation of these smoke byproducts hinders the flow of smoke and gases.
- The sweeps at Clean Sweep of Anne Arundel County are trained on a number of cleaning techniques including: chemical cleaning for heavy creosote buildups, mechanical cleanings involving wire brushes and special chains for ordinary deposit buildups, and the basic sweeping process which includes using brushes and an HEPA-filtered vacuum to remove buildups.
- Our sweeps are certified and licensed so you know they will do the job right, and will keep your house clean!
