Need To Get Your Chimney Cleaned? Professional Dallas Chimney Sweep Service
Chimney fire prevention starts with having your chimney inspected and swept if necessary.
Chimney sweep and/or a chimney cleaning is performed in most cases from the inside of the house. We start by covering the front of the fireplace with a sheet or tarp for our equipment.
Once all the equipment is placed on the coverings the process of cleaning out loose soot debris can begin. A pole with a brush is run through the damper up to the top of the chimney until no more loose soot debris is falling. This can take 5 minutes or 2 hours depending on how much soot or debris is in the chimney. Process generally takes a half an hour on normal fireplaces.
Chimney Troop guarantees no soot will be deposited anywhere but the vacuum.
It is important to note that chimney sweeps or cleanings do NOT prevent the flue fires from occurring. It minimizes the amount of creosote in a chimney to reduce the severity of a flue fire should occur. Unless you have your chimney swept after every fire there is no guarantee what will develop from your continued control what happens after an inspection and or sweep. This is why routine inspections and sweeps are important.
