Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to have a chimney cleaned when there's nice carpet around it?

Our professionals take great care to protect the homes of our customers. Leaving our workspace clean and beautiful is as important to us as the quality chimney care we provide.

How long does it take for a team to arrive after requesting a visit?

We can typically make it to your home within 3-4 days of your initial call.

Do chimneys for gas fires need serviced?

Definitely; all flues can get blocked by debris from animals and exhaust from the fire can cause corrosive buildup. There is also risk that the venting system isn't working properly if the gas stove was installed after the chimney. The installers are not necessarily interested in making sure the system is acceptable as much as getting it installed.

How often should my chimney be swept?

Each chimney and fireplace is different, so there's no perfect answer. The easiest way to know when your chimney needs cleaned is to have it inspected annually as recommended by the NFPA.

The Toolset You Don’t Play With

Spade

 Appears similar to a flat shovel. It is associated with digging, mainly meant to pick up ashes, hot coals, and burning embers. Moving around the ashes and providing a cleaner burn, there will be a decrease in smoke production. Typically, use to clean ashes and coals once they are cooled by scooping them into the ash dump door.

Tongs

Similar to the ones for cooking, but these are much larger. These are large enough to grab logs, pieces of wood, and breaking up burnt wood to provide more oxygen. More oxygen creates more flames and less smoke.

Fireplace Broom

A tiny/small broom that is to sweep out ashes from the fireplace once a fire has been extinguished. This is important to have because all fires create ash and it fits in the fireplace to clean.

Bellows

Not one of the more commonly known tools, but meant to blow a controlled gust of oxygen into the fire to increase the flames. There is a valve on the end to direct the wave of air. It is to help start the fire by increasing the flame size and heat. Typically used to light the kindling.

Fireplace Poker

 A long metal extended rod with a pointed end, similar to a Philips screwdriver. Can move wood in the fire.

Andiron

A rarer tool and known as a ‘log-dog’. It is a horizontal bar that is used to hold/support logs that are fed to the flames. It allows more air to pass through, producing a cleaner burn.

As a young kid and you’re over at your grandparents house playing in the den. Well, in the den, there is a fireplace. Right beside the fireplace was a set of tools that looked interesting and cool to play with. Below are descriptions of each tool in the set. Reminder, each set does not include all six pieces; some have less while others have seven or more.
