Q: Why should I bother to have my chimney cleaned?
A: To protect your health, for fire prevention and to avoid smoke damage to your valuable home. For insurance purposes and to comply with your Provincial FIRE CODE.
Q: How often should I clean my chimney?
A: According to the FIRE CODE at least once per year. Especially during Spring time after the burning season is over. Twice a year, depending on how often you use your fireplace.
Q: How long does a chimney cleaning take?
A: At least 60 minutes, but it all depends on your last clean. If it is not regularly maintained it will likely take more time.
Q: When you sweep my chimney will you make a big mess?
A: No because we use industrial vacuum equipment to prevent soot and dust from entering your home. We take special precautions to ensure all dust and debris is contained and we clean up thoroughly after the work is completed.
Q: How can you help me maintain a safe home?
A: Not only is a clean chimney a safe chimney, but paying a little bit now can protect your largest investment against fire damage or carbon monoxide poisoning. Proper inspections and maintenance have saved lives. Besides, a clean chimney simply smells better; the same elements that catch fire also create chimney odours when the chimney is not in use.
