Creosote is one of many contaminants released during combustion. It attaches to the flue liner, damper, and the chimney interior and continues to accumulate with every burn. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), an accumulation of 1/8” or more of creosote is a fire hazard and should be removed.

Most chimney fires are preventable. It starts with an annual chimney cleaning. This preventive maintenance service is affordable, reliable, and convenient. When you schedule a chimney cleaning, one of our highly trained and certified chimney professionals will arrive with our brightly marked service trailer with all of the equipment, tools, and supplies to get the job done quickly and safely. We will also clean any attached heating appliances. Usually, it takes about 45 minutes to 90 minutes to thoroughly clean most chimneys. Best of all, we clean up the work area leaving no mess behind.

How We Clean Chimneys In Lexington SC

The chimney sweep will thoroughly clean the entire chimney system, including the hearth, firebox, flue liner, interior walls, and chimney flue cap. A special vacuum system will get rid of most of the dirt, soot, and ash without spreading these particles around your house.  If it been quite some time since your last chimney cleaning, your flue may have stage 3 creosote that will require the chimney sweep to use select chemicals for its removal. The chimney sweep will also use a ladder to climb on the roof to clear any obstructions in the flue. Your flue must remain free of obstructions so that smoke, soot, and fumes can escape. Flue obstructions will force carbon monoxide fumes to back-up into your living space. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is also called the “silent killer.”
