If not removed, this buildup can lead to a potential chimney fire that can cause significant damage to the chimney and potentially, fire risk to the home.

There are many good reasons to have us inspect your system. With use over time, a chimney will collect creosote deposits that can result in a dangerous chimney fire. Having your chimney and fireplace swept will greatly reduce the fire danger. A chimney can have a defect that may be difficult to see inside the flue, smoke chamber, or other concealed areas. If you are a new homeowner or have never had a certified sweep inspect your system, it is advisable to have this service done. Your sweep may recommend a sweep service and perform the needed maintenance.
When the CSIA certified sweep you have hired arrives at your home, they will ask about the doors and windows. They will request that all the exterior doors and windows be closed. They will request the opening of exterior doors and windows be avoided during the sweep service. This is all done in an effort to avoid a potential backdraft that can pull soot down from the chimney. The sweep will have the floor area in front of the fireplace covered and a large vacuum system filtering the air as the chimney is cleared of deposits. Often the sweep service is done from below enabling the sweep to keep a close eye on the dust collection and containment.
