The Purpose of Annual Chimney Sweeping in Orchard Park
Our experienced chimney sweeps bring you two very important benefits:
1. We remove flammable creosote from your chimney to reduce the chances of a chimney fire and protect the flue liner from the acidic properties of the creosote.
2. We remove debris such as twigs, leaves, and the nests of small animals that could impede drafting and send smoke and dangerous carbon monoxide into your home.
Addressing Creosote in Your Chimney
Creosote forms when smoke condenses in your chimney flue. Our Orchard Park customers are surprised to learn that even small buildups can lead to a chimney fire.
Creosote removal requires a variety of tools and the training and experience to use them. Our chimney sweep equipment includes:
- Commercial cleaning solutions
- Chimney sweep rods
- Stainless steel and flat wire chimney cleaning brushes
- Hand brushes and scrubbers
- Chain whips and cable deglazers
- Industrial vacuums
Reducing creosote levels is a smart move and should be done once a year – or on a different schedule that your chimney sweep will recommend based on how much you use your fireplace.
We Remove Tree Debris and Animals
If you operate your Orchard Park chimney without a secure chimney cap in place, the flue is open to intrusion from outside tree debris and small animals such as squirrels, birds, and raccoons. Many of these animals build nests in chimneys. Some of them die inside chimneys, unable to get out.
All this material narrows the chimney flue and causes smoke to draft sluggishly. If smoke can’t get up the chimney, it’s going into the house.
As bad as a smoky room is, much worse is a room full of carbon monoxide, a toxic gas present in smoke. Carbon monoxide can’t be seen or smelled, but it’s known to be potentially fatal to people and pets when inhaled.
You can solve this particular drafting issue by having our Orchard Park chimney sweep crew install a sturdy full-width chimney cap.
