Chimney Cleaning and Inspections

 

Whether it is a masonry fireplace, prefabricated fireplace, fireplace insert or a free standing wood stove, the CHIMNEY Manns clean the entire wood burning system right down to the glass doors!  A written condition report is included.

The primary reason for a chimney cleaning is to remove as much flammable creosote as possible in order to reduce the chance and severity of a chimney fire.

Our chimney cleaning process begins with us arriving in our Chimney Manns logo van so you know it’s us.  We will text you when we’re 10 minutes from your home if you would like.  We will have provided you with a two hour appointment window.

  • We use plastic shoe covers on our feet to protect your homes flooring from dirt.
  • We use drop clothes in front of the fireplace or around the woodstove.
  • We sweep and inspect the entire system from top to bottom.
  • For woodstoves, that means brushing the flue, connector pipes and cleaning the stove itself.
  • For fireplaces, that includes brushing the flue, smoke chamber, smoke shelf and firebox.
  • We use double filtered vacuum so no dust gets in the home.
  • As we clean we inspect (observe) all accessible areas of the wood burning system.  That includes the exterior portions of the chimney above the roof when possible.  We are able to reach the chimney top in most cases.
  • If possible we will view the interior of flue lining with digital pictures or a video camera.
  • When completed we will discuss our inspection findings with you.  Anything we discuss will be part of a written inspection you will receive at the time of service.
  • We do clean up after ourselves.
  • The chimney cleaning price includes a complete written inspection.
  • If any repairs are needed we can send you a written work proposal if it’s a repair we complete.  If not we can hopefully refer you to a recommended source.

Appointment Tips

Before Your Appointment:
24 hours
before your appointment, remember to:

  • Stop using your wood burning fireplace or stove. For safety’s sake, we need to work with an appliance that is completely cool.

The Day of Your Appointment, remember to:

  • Remove fragile or precious items from the area near the fireplace or woodstove. If necessary, we will move furniture.
  • Watch us work if you’d like. Customers learn a great deal about chimney safety from watching us work, so we encourage it.
