Our guarantee of a no-mess cleaning and inspection process
While a chimney sweep may sound straightforward, it's a complex process that demands expert handling to be performed correctly. It takes a considerable amount of time to master and is vital for maintaining your chimney and safeguarding your home and family in Pensacola, FL.
Whenever you're using any vented appliances such as stoves, fireplaces, furnaces, etc., your chimney is working overtime to contain and eliminate harmful substances safely. However, over time, debris like creosote (a residue resulting from unburned flue gasses settling inside your chimney) can accumulate, leading to blockages and even dangerous chimney fires. A chimney fire can burn at temperatures over 2000 degrees, melting mortar, cracking flue tiles, and in severe cases, igniting the highly combustible wood framing of a house. A skilled chimney sweep professional in Pensacola, FL, will thoroughly and safely scrub and remove all creosote and debris, ensuring your chimney is safe and functioning properly. Upon completion of the chimney sweep, our technicians will conduct a 21-point safety inspection of your fireplace and chimney to confirm its safe use.
Chimney sweeping is an affordable and essential part of your home maintenance in Pensacola, FL, that ensures your safety and saves you money in the long run.
