Chimney Sweeping — We Clean What Soots You!
Is your chimney riddled with soot and creosote? Both byproducts of combustion can corrode your chimney liner, erode the smoke chamber, and cause a host of performance issues and the need for repairs — but we can help. We provide thorough chimney sweepings to our neighbors throughout Fayetteville, Eureka Springs, Bella Vista, and the surrounding communities, and the best part is: our chimney cleanings are mess-free, guaranteed.
We start by putting drop cloths down — from the front door to your hearth, if necessary — so your property is protected against soot, dirt, and dust while we sweep your chimney. Our technicians also come equipped with foot protection to prevent sooty footprints and keep your beautiful carpet and floors clean.
Once we’ve placed tarps down and protected your property, we use our specialized chimney cleaning tools and brushes to loosen creosote deposits and soot, and remove them from the liner, smoke chamber, and fireplace. And since we’ll have a powerful vacuum system in place (a RoVac 3-motor, HEPA filtered vacuum) before the cleaning begins, you can rest assured every dust particle and soot or creosote deposit will be captured, not spread throughout your home or air supply. We’ll also remove any bird or animal nests and debris.
Have harder-to-remove buildup, like glazed creosote? Need to have your chimney disinfected after nesting animals are removed? We provide power sweeping, mechanical cleaning, and chemical applications, so no matter what needs to be done to clean your chimney, we can do it.
Once we’re finished cleaning the chimney, we’ll inspect the chimney to make sure we didn’t miss anything.
Should You Have Your Chimney Cleaned Every Year?
One question we’re commonly asked is, “Should I have my chimney cleaned every year?” The answer is: maybe. Some chimneys need to be swept more often than others, especially if they’re used a lot or if unseasoned wood is burned in the fireplace. Some homeowners may need to have the chimney swept every year, while others may be able to wait or schedule sweepings every two or three years.
The best way to know when it’s time for a cleaning is to make sure you’re scheduling your chimney inspection every year. During an inspection, we’ll evaluate the soot and creosote buildup levels, check for nesting materials or other flammable deposits, and let you know whether you’re due for a good chimney cleaning. We’ll also check for any damage, chimney leaks, or signs of problems.
