Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have my chimney cleaned?

We recommend that you get this done at least once a year, as well as anytime a chimney changes ownership or when any type of damage occurs (or is suspected).

When is the best time to get my chimney cleaned and inspected?

The best time is late spring and through summer. This tends to be the period where you aren’t using your system for heat or family enjoyment, and we tend to be less busy and have a more flexible schedule. It also gives us time to address any chimney or fireplace repairs before your burning season kicks off.

Can I clean my chimney myself?

You could try, but we highly recommend you don’t. This is a job better left to our certified technicians. Trust us, you don’t want to be the husband who ruined your wife’s vacuum cleaner trying to suck out ash and shoot (we know from experience).

Does it matter what I burn in my wood-burning fireplace or wood burning appliance?

Yes! We can’t stress this enough – it is important that you only burn dry, seasoned wood in your wood-burning fireplace, insert, or stove. You should never ever burn things like cardboard, wrapping paper, plastic of any kind, trash, etc. These can release toxic fumes as well as make other problems for you and your chimney.
