Chimney Sweep

Chimney Sweep in Seattle WashingtonWe Perform Our Chimney Cleaning Seattle Services with an Important Purpose — Your Safety
Government-supported agencies recommend cleaning your chimney flue once a year to limit your risk for a chimney fire. Special types of use can generate heavier creosote production warranting more frequent cleaning. Our technicians will advise you on this and make suggestions about how you can reduce creosote build-up.

Great Training Is How We Guarantee Quality Service, Every Time.
We invest heavily in the proper training of our cleaning technicians. Our technicians go through several hours of classroom training and months of on-the-job training before they are considered independent. In addition to technical skills, we emphasize attention to detail and professionalism, which includes communication, promptness and cleanliness. Most of our senior chimney sweep seattle technicians along with our brick masons have over 10 years of experience. You rely on us to keep your home safe from a chimney fire and we take that responsibility seriously.

Our chimney cleaning Seattle professionals clean all types of heating equipment from masonry fireplaces to wood-burning stoves. Chimney flues and venting stacks are scraped of creosote with special brushes designed to reach every inch from the damper to the chimney cap. Stoves are often fully disassembled, cleaned and reassembled.

Cleaning soot from the chimney and fireplace is a dirty job, so our technicians take extra precautions to help keep the rest of your home clean. We drape tarps on the floor and around the hearth and use vacuums to keep the dust to a minimum. We also wear shoe covers that can be changed anytime to keep your floors clean.

Factors Effecting Chimney-Cleaning Seattle Frequency:

Moisture content of the wood— Wood that has not dried over 6 months in a protected area contains excess moisture. A wet fire does not burn as hot, which makes it difficult for gases to escape the flue before they condense into the liquid form of creosote.
Average size of fire — If the fire is not hot enough, then some gases can’t fully escape the flue before they condense.
Length of chimney or venting stack — If the gases have too far to travel, some will condense inside the flue.
Whether or not your chimney flue is insulated — If the chimney flue is cold, then the gases will cool faster; some condensing into creosote inside the flue.
Chimney Inspections Seattle— We examine your chimney and fireplace looking for signs of wear that could compromise safety or potentially lead to expensive chimney repairs in seattle. We check for animals or other flue blockages that could cause chimney fires or compromise ventilation. We ensure that roof flashing is in good condition and that there are no signs of leaking under the roof. We check for cracks in the chimney crown, or rusted chase covers. The goal of the inspection is to ensure that things are safe and not starting to deteriorate. Most repairs are simple fixes if they are caught soon enough.
