Chimney Sweep

One of the most important maintenance tasks you can do for your chimney is annual chimney sweeping, or chimney cleaning. The professional chimney sweeps at National Chimney Service have the tools and training to effectively remove flammable creosote & debris from the chimney flue and keep your furnace flue clean & operating at peak efficiency.

Why Hire a Chimney Sweep?

  1. Creosote, which builds up in the chimney when wood fireplaces are used, is highly flammable. In fact, most chimney fires are caused by ignited creosote, either in the main flue or the smoke chamber.
  2. Outside debris can seriously hinder the drafting ability of your fireplace. Leaves, twigs, the nests of small animals such as squirrels and birds, as well as the animals themselves when they die in the chimney all create drafting blockages.
  3. Our chimney sweeps are Trained Chimney Professionals and perform a safety inspection with all our chimney cleaning projects. Inspections of your fireplace/chimney system as well as your furnace venting allow you to get on top of damage or malfunction early, before it gets out of hand.

Can’t I Just Use a Chimney Cleaning Log?

You can, and there’s nothing wrong with using these products for supplemental chimney care. But even the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), the leading chimney organization in the U.S., cautions that cleaning logs are not substitutes for actual cleaning performed by our technicians.

Chimney cleaning logs include a chemical that when burned will help to dislodge some types of creosote in your chimney system. Creosote can present as a flakey, puffy, sticky or solid substance, and chimney cleaning logs will not effectively remove every type.

What Happens During a Chimney Sweep?

When we visit our Morris County NJ and Fairfield County CT customers’ homes, we take great care to safeguard all furnishings and personal items in the work area.

Depending on the level of cleaning needed, we may be bringing in specialized chimney sweep brushes, cleaning rods, scrubbers, solvents, vacuums and more, and we’re always very careful about maintaining the integrity of everything in the home that we work around.

Chimney sweeping can happen from the top of your chimney or up through the fireplace. The process is completed in under a day, and we’ll leave your home looking as it did when we arrived.
