Removing Creosote & Other Debris

Soot, creosote, ash, and all that other build-up has a reputation for staining Santa’s nice red suit, but that’s not the only reason you need to clear it all out before the holidays kick off. When materials accumulate inside of your chimney, you become much more prone to clogs and your airflow is hindered significantly. This negatively affects the performance of your fireplace, meaning you get less heat and more smoke backing up into your living space.

Clogs also block the pathways that hazardous fumes use to escape, thus making your home more vulnerable to carbon monoxide. Since this gas is colorless and odorless, it is extremely hard to detect. It’s also one of the most dangerous gases out there and can be fatal when not addressed properly and in a timely manner. We urge all of our customers to invest in carbon monoxide detectors and to work with our team today to ensure your heating appliances are ready for use this winter season.

Creosote is another big issue, as it’s very flammable. It can take on a few different forms, but no matter what stage it is at, it’s dangerous! As creosote builds up inside your system, you become more prone to experience a chimney fire, which will damage your interior system significantly. Your chimney structure will be a lot weaker, and you’ll soon notice cracking and holes, both of which make you more vulnerable to house fires and gas leaks.

We can get rid of even the toughest and hardest to remove creosote out there! We’ll avoid damage to your system while guaranteeing the best results around. Once we’re through, your system will be all set and ready to go, so you enjoy countless cozy fires throughout the holiday season. Our team is ready to serve you!
