How is a chimney cleaned?

When one of our certified sweeps arrives, he/she will tarp the work area and assist you in moving items out of the area. The chimney will then be evaluated for its condition and if cleaning is in order. A special dust collection vacuum will run during the cleaning process. The damper will be removed if possible and the flue cleaned from the roof or from the appliance opening. If the unit is a fireplace, the smoke shelf and smoke chamber will be cleaned. The firebox is cleaned by hand, all debris is removed and the damper is re-installed. You can learn more about our entire process here.

“We had Valley Chimney Sweeps out to check out a cracked firebox on a home we were considering purchasing.  They were honest & upfront about the condition of the chimney, what would need to be repaired, and what future repairs would look like (the chimney was built incorrectly).  Price for inspection was reasonable and if we choose to have the work done, the inspection payment is considered a prepayment toward the repairs.”
