Chimney sweeping Charlotte has many years of experience and knowledge. Our founder, Gabe Salinas, started out when he was only 17 years old. Our company has been in the industry for thirty years. Chimney sweeping is a safety priority for you, your family, and your home. Think of chimney sweeping as additional insurance for your home. Chimney sweeping has some great benefits and also some mishaps if you fail to get it done. One of the awesome benefits is getting better efficiency from when you are burning a fire from within your fireplace. Being able to use your fireplace as an additional heat source or an added heat source can be a beautiful thing. Saving you money is an added perk of having a fireplace in your home, especially if you have access to some wood to use in your home’s fireplace.
So keeping your fireplace swept out on a yearly basis is a good thing for you and your wallet. Did you know that when your fireplace gets loaded down with soot and creosote that the chimney flue actually becomes smaller because the soot and creosote take up space and make it smaller. When this happens the fire becomes less efficient. The smoke that is supposed to go up and out of the chimney flue will not have enough room to escape so it may need to back up into the home. This may cause some dangerous problems to happen such as smoke damage to the inside of your home. Anything that contains fabric such as furniture, bedding, and draperies will be smoke damaged by the smoke that can not escape out of the chimney.
If a chimney fire happens then the worst thing that can happen is a house fire. Chimney sweeping Charlotte can sweep out your fireplace in about 45 minutes to one hour and save you from a huge headache. Our experts can take the guesswork out of chimney sweeping and chimney inspection so that you can use and enjoy your fireplace without worry. If a small ember from a burning fire floats up into the chimney flue and ignites the highly combustible creosote it could indeed start a chimney fire. Is that worth the cost of burning down your home? We think that it is not. In our professional opinion the small amount of money that you are going to pay for having chimney sweeping done is well worth it.
Chimney sweeping also prevents corrosion of the chimney. When done on a regular yearly basis it also takes less elbow grease for the chimney sweeper to do. When there is more soot and creosote stuck to the walls of the chimney flue then it will take more effort to get it off. Soot and creosote are acidic and will corrode metal and mortar. That is why it is in your best benefit to get it taken off. Soot and creosote can also smell foul, especially when wet. As you can see, having it removed is beneficial.
Another benefit of having our pros at chimney sweeping Charlotte do a sweeping for you is to make sure that you don’t have any unwanted critters hanging out inside of your chimney. If your chimney cap has become loose or even come off completely, then a bird, squirrel, raccoon or any other small animal can get inside of your chimney to nest or hide food. So if you have ever heard strange noises come from the inside of your fireplace, then perhaps you do have some animal friend hanging out in your fireplace. Before you start your first fire of the season don’t take the chance of burning up an animal in the fireplace. One it will smell really bad and two it will start a fire.

It does not take long and can make your fireplace a safe place in which you and your family can enjoy a warm and cozy fire. Your stress level will decrease tremendously when you take good care of your fireplace knowing that you have removed the soot and creosote from it. Chimney sweeping can be a dirty job but someone has to do it and we do not mind.
