How Our Chimney Sweeping Service Works
During an average chimney sweeping session, we will perform a summary assessment of the system that we wish to clean. From there, the chimney is given a thorough scrub. This includes the hearth, firebox, smoke chamber, draft regulator and the wood stove and its chimney connectors. Once that process has been complete, our skilled team will remove the debris at the base of a chimney, in the fireplace and the wood stove.
What is Creosote and How Can it Affect my Home?
In essence, creosote is generally formed by the incomplete of combustion of wood. Usually, it takes one of three very distinctive forms:
- Wood dust or soot
- Blown brittle pieces
- Glazed components, similar to thick black paint
The most dangerous aspect of creosote buildup is one of the main causes of chimney fires and could result in a real and dangerous hazard for your home. An efficient wood-burning appliance with appropriate operating techniques and regular maintenance can greatly reduce the risks of a chimney fire.
