Chimney sweeping only takes a short amount of time to complete.  It can be done within 45 minutes to one hour by our top of the line pros at chimney sweeping Greenville SC.  From the time our techs set up and get drop cloths set down to hooking up the vacuum cleaner and placing the brush up inside the chimney flue to do the actual sweeping it takes relatively little time to get done.  The job can be a dirty one and it is not a safe one so you will find our techs wearing safety protection for eyes and mouth.  The soot and creosote that is being swept from inside of the chimney walls is harmful and can be dangerous to breathe in.  These substances can irritate the lungs or cause lung disease.  Also our tech will wear long gloves because these substances can also cause skin irritations.  Creosote should be handled as a carcinogen.  

Unbeknownst to many it only takes a small spark inside of a burning fireplace to ignite a chimney fire if soot and creosote is left to build up.  Creosote is a highly combustible substance that can ignite with a small ember.  Creosote is a by-product of the incomplete combustion of wood and other fossil fuels that burned inside fireplaces or wood stoves.  The process takes place in three different stages for creosote to develop but the most important thing to remember is that if wood or other fossil fuels are not burned completely then creosote develops.  The buildup will lead to the constriction of airflow inside of the chimney flue as it builds up if the chimney is not swept.  Smoke can back up into the home and cause problems which is a health issue and can cause damage to furniture, clothing, and draperies.  If the creosote catches on fire, then fire may be seen shooting out from the top of the chimney.  You might not see but perhaps one of your neighbors will.  Chimney sweeping Greenville SC wants you to understand that keeping your chimney swept is not just for aesthetic reasons but mostly for fire prevention.  Our goal is to have every homeowner educated about the potential dangers of leaving creosote and soot to build up inside of the chimney walls and flue.
