Why Is Chimney Sweeping Such An Important Service?

Every year, homeowners throughout the U.S. experience devastating loss of property and even life as a result of chimney fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. Fortunately, keeping your chimney system clean and free of blockages and flammable deposits like creosote can significantly reduce your risk of both. A clean chimney system will also draft better and experience less problems like smoke back drafting, and other inconvenient and unpleasant side effects.

The expertly trained and Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified technicians at Chesapeake Chimney & Co. know how to properly and effectively clean every type of chimney system, from top to bottom, so that you’re left with a cleaner, safer, more efficient home.

What Happens During A Chimney Sweeping Service?

Prior to beginning the service, our technicians will lay tarps down in front of the fireplace opening and set up their tools and containment system. Our high-powered vacuums keep everything contained so that you aren’t left with a mess on your hands – just a cleaner, more efficient chimney. We’re committed to providing the most thorough and effective chimney sweeping services, and use state-of-the-art equipment and high-powered vacuum systems from A.W. Perkins to ensure a mess-free, stress-free job, every time.

During a chimney sweeping, we remove everything from twigs and foliage that may have blown in during a storm to animals and nesting materials, glazed creosote, and ash. We’ll clean every easily accessible part of your chimney and hearth appliance:

  • Chimney Flue
  • Smoke Shelf
  • Safety Cap/Spark Arrester
  • Firebox Walls
  • Damper

Our goal is to provide the most exceptional service to each and every customer we encounter and keep the homes of our neighbors throughout Southern Maryland as safe and cozy as possible.
