  • Soot build ups increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Excess soot accumulating in chimneys results in increased risks of chimney fires and obstructions.
  • Soot can leak into fireplace hearths causing toxic emissions to be present while reducing the energy efficiency of fireplaces.

At Clean Sweep, we lower soot and carbon monoxide poisoning health risks. To do this, we remove excess soot deposits from flue linings and chimney interiors. In the process, chimney sweeping reduces the likelihood of chimney fires and improves the overall efficiency of solid fuel burners.

At present, the National Fire Protection Association recommend that chimney cleaning and inspections are carried out at least once a year. However, you should schedule cleaning promptly if your chimney is smoking, blocked, or you begin noticing unpleasant odors around your hearth or chimney structure.
