Creosote in Morris County Chimneys
Creosote is a substance that builds up every time you use your wood fireplace. It forms when smoke condenses in the chimney flue. Sticky, flakey, puffy or solid in form, creosote is highly flammable and is the cause of most chimney fires throughout Morris County every year.
You can’t keep creosote from being produced, but you can limit its impact by having our crew sweep your chimney once a year. Annual chimney sweep services address not only creosote, but also infiltrating debris such as leaves, twigs and the nests of small animals.
All this debris narrows the flue and causes smoke and harmful combustion gases to draft sluggishly. With a sufficient blockage, your home can be subject to a backup of deadly carbon monoxide, which is both invisible and odorless.
How We Clean Your Chimney
We clean your chimney with professional-grade equipment including:
Chimney sweeping whips
Chimney sweep rods
Stainless steel and flat-wire chimney cleaning brushes
Cable deglazer whips
Our crew is trained extensively on the use of these tools and products. Every Morris County chimney cleaning we perform is fully insured for your protection, and we guarantee the quality of our workmanship.
However, after a few visits, our chimney sweeps might suggest a different schedule for cleaning, based on how often you use your fireplace and how much creosote we find in the flue each time.
Not all Chimney Fires Are Obvious
While a big, blazing chimney fire can be a catastrophe, smaller fires that you don’t know about can happen regularly. These “little” fires may start and go out on their own, but not before they do some level of damage to the chimney liner or other areas within the chimney system.
Regular chimney sweep services are the best way to reduce the chances of having any kind of chimney fire while ensuring smooth and proper drafting every time you use your fireplace.
Chimney Cleaning & Inspection in Morris County
Our customers rely on us for chimney cleaning and chimney inspections. A basic chimney inspection performed once a year – usually in conjunction with chimney sweeping – will allow you to stay on top of all the early signs of damage to your chimney, its liner, and all components.
Minor chimney problems are usually easy (and inexpensive) to fix. But if they’re ignored, you can end up looking at a major and complicated repair project that can cost you thousands of dollars.
Hire Only Professionals for Chimney Cleaning
Our technicians are thoroughly trained and backed by 20+ years’ experience in cleaning chimneys throughout Morris County. When hiring a chimney sweep or company, hire only licensed and insured professionals with verifiable on-the-job experience.
Novices and “handymen” can do more harm to your chimney system than good when attempting to remove stubborn creosote. They don’t have the tools or the training to do the job safely and properly.
