- Removing dangerous creosote from inside the chimney.
As wood and other fuels burn, the by-products of combustion flow away from the fire and up the chimney. Because the chimney is cooler than the fire, condensation occurs. This means that soot and other materials collect and form a residue called creosote that sticks to the interior of your chimney. Creosote is a highly flammable substance, and if it is not regularly removed, creosote may ignite and cause dangerous chimney fires.
What to look for: Some sweeps use a simple Shop-Vac and brush to clean your chimney. Our Turbo Sweeper Industrial grade Sweep Vacuum has better suction, and has no filters, so there's no possibility of the vacuum blowing soot and residue on your carpet, drapes, and furniture.
This multipoint inspection and/or video inspection will determine if your chimney system meets current safety standards and enable us to provide an in-depth condition diagnosis.
