How often should chimneys be cleaned?

Chimneys should be cleaned annually – and/or after every 36 lit fires in the fireplace. Chimneys should also be cleaned if any soot is seen inside your home, after a pre-built home is purchased, BEFORE a new home is purchased, and before every Winter season. Furthermore, chimneys must be cleaned after a fire in your home or the chimney, if any stains appear in or around the chimney, after any roof replacement, or in the event of a lightning strike or falling tree impact.


While in the past, flues were not inspected during every chimney cleaning, Chimney Sweep Near Me ensures that your chimney will be fully and thoroughly inspected during our cleaning service so that any issue, even subtle, can be rapidly detected and remedied.
