Chimney sweeping takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.  The pros at chimney sweeping Mount Pleasant will inspect the inside of the fireplace walls, the damper, and sweep the chimney.  They will also make sure that your chimney cap is in place.  If you are aware of any potential problems or have any concerns please let us know in advance of the service.  Customers that have not used their fireplaces in some time have heard “strange noises” inside the chimney.  It could be a matter of the chimney cap not being in place and animals taking refuge inside the chimney.  It happens more than you would think.  So if you are hearing “strange noises” too, don’t worry.  It is best to take care of the issue before you start a fire.  Birds, a racoon, mice or squirrels may have taken habitat inside of your chimney, hence the “strange noises”.

Any number of things can displace a chimney cap such as heavy winds, hurricanes, and any other natural occurring element caused by mother nature.  Even a big tree limb can knock the cap off the top of the chimney.  But the most important thing to do is having your chimney inspected and swept before using it each year.  If you are using it alot all year long, then it may be necessary to have it swept more often.

Soot and creosote are the two by-products of burning wood in a fireplace.  They occur from the incomplete burning of wood.  These two by-products when built up will cause a fire to be less efficient and restrict the amount of airflow through the chimney.  Smoke can even back up into the home if the soot and creosote are so thick that the smoke from the burning wood can not escape to the outside through the chimney flue.  If smoke damage occurs inside of a home it can affect you and your loved ones and even your home furnishings.  Any furniture that is made of cloth, drapes and clothing can become damaged.  As you can see it is important to have chimney sweeping done regularly.  Our chimney sweeping Mount Pleasant team can take care of your chimney with our professional service when you need us.

The biggest disaster of letting a chimney go unserviced is a chimney fire!  All it takes is one burning ember or a high enough temperature to ignite creosote.  As creosote is highly flammable and mostly a tar like substance it can start to burn under the right circumstances as mentioned.  Chimney fires can go beyond the fireplace and chimney so don’t go to bed with a fire burning.  This could be a serious mistake!  You and your loved ones would be at risk of losing your lives.
