Chimney Cleaning

As you regularly use your fireplace soot and creosote gradually build up along the walls of the chimney. If these deposits build up long enough they may ignite. This ignition can cause a chimney fire, putting your home and family in danger. Regularly cleaning your chimney also improves the airflow and overall performance of the chimney. If you have ever noticed smoke coming out of your fireplace and into your living room, the reason is most likely that your chimney needs to be cleaned or your spark arrestor could be sealing off with creosote.
