This depends on when it was last cleaned, how often you use it, and what kind of fireplace you have (i.e. regular fire box, prefabricate or wood stove.
Not really! Just be careful on how you place the fire logs in the firebox.
The most common chimney fireplaces are brick chimneys, prefabricated chimneys and wood stove inserts.
We use a powerful commercial vacuum that will absorb any particle during the cleaning process. We also layout blankets in the surrounding areas of the fireplace.
We recommend to clean your fireplace once a year, but if you frequently use your chimney during cold seasons you should consider doing it twice a year to prevent creosote in the chimney.
We know it can be easy to forget to schedule your chimney cleaning, so we offer a FREE chimney sweep reminder service. Simply let our technician know you would like to be part of this reminder and we will add you to the reminder system.
