According to the National Fire Protection Association, chimneys should be inspected or cleaned annually. The chimney and fireplace/furnace system is quite complicated, and an inspection can alert you to a potential problem before it becomes a costly repair or a safety issue. Many times homeowners are unaware of problems that may exist. It is always a good idea to schedule your inspection and cleaning in the late Summer or early Fall before you begin using the chimney or furnace during the heating season. We can provide you with high quality and professional chimney cleaning services in Florida.

How does our Chimney sweeping work?
If you get our chimney sweeping service, you will receive two kinds of main services: Cleaning and Inspection. In the inspection, a technician cleaner will accede to the roof and inspect the whole chimney. The complete chimney duct will be inspected for any kind of issues, unusual odors, smoke entering the home and accumulation of soot.
Once we end with the inspection of the chimney, we will clean it for the removal of unwanted materials. The Cleaning includes the following:
- We clean the flue from the top to the bottom
- We clean the smoke shelf
- We clean the firebox
How often should I have my chimney or furnace flues cleaned?
The answer to this question depends on what fuel you use. Generally, if you use wood, it’s good to have the chimney cleaned at least every 12 months. Gas is clean burning fuel, we recommend a cleaning every 1-2 years based on the amount of use. It’s important to inspect the chimney before use after a period of not using it to prevent any possible damage or safety hazards.
What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
If you have a fireplace, wood stove or furnace, you should always have a working carbon monoxide detector. Carbon monoxide is produced whenever gas, oil, kerosene, wood or charcoal is burned. Higher levels can be produced when your chimney is not functioning properly. This odorless gas can accumulate to dangerous levels when a blocked chimney or flue prevents the gases from properly venting out and away from the home. Flues should be inspected routinely for rust, blockage, and defects that may allow gases to backdraft into the home.
What is Creosote?
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America, CREOSOTE is a residue, a by-product of combustion. Creosote is black or brown in appearance and collects on the walls of the chimney flue. Our expert technicians know what to look for when cleaning your chimneys and fireplaces, ensuring potentially dangerous deposits of Creosote are efficiently removed.
Why Should You Clean Your Chimney?
The cost of a chimney sweep or inspection is insignificant when compared with the potential devastation that a chimney fire or carbon monoxide poisoning can cause. There is no doubt that the increase in proper chimney maintenance has saved many lives and billions in property damage.
