Can My Chimney Be Cleaned If It Has A Bend?

It is important to have your chimney swept on an annual basis. With use, creosote builds up and debris gets caught in the chimney. The chimney needs attention as do other areas of your home. It is also recommended that a professional chimney sweep inspect your chimney. This will help determine if a sweep is needed. Professional technicians at Guardian Chimney Sweep can help with all your chimney needs.

Preparing for a Chimney Sweep Appointment.

  • With all chimney sweep jobs, there are preparations needed as well. When you are preparing for a chimney sweep be sure you have not had a fire in the fireplace for at least 24-48 hours. We want it to be cold.
  • Protect your furniture and the surrounding area of the fireplace.
  • Keep pets away from workers. Your pet may be the most loving, but there will be a lot of movement in the area of the fireplace. It would be safest to have your pet in another room away from the worker.
  • Pathway to the house. Be sure that our technician has a clear entry to your fireplace. Move any cars that are in the way of a truck to park. If there is snow, remove it from the pathway to the home.
