Houston Area Chimney Sweeping
Even if you only burn a few times a year, annual inspections and chimney sweeping is recommended by the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America). Creosote and soot build-up inside your fireplace and chimney liner can pose a serious danger because of the highly flammable nature of this coating.
Our experienced chimney sweeps service Houston and all surrounding areas with superior chimney services. During the annual chimney inspection, our professional chimney sweeps will examine your burning appliance and alert you when it is time for a chimney cleaning. At Guardian Chimney Sweeps our expertise spans across all burning appliances. We inspect and clean wood, gas, pellet and oil burning stoves, fireplaces and inserts.
Also during the inspection, we will be able to check the entire system to ensure no other problems exist. We make it our priority to spot problems in their early stages and before extensive (and costly) repairs are necessary.
Most customers schedule their chimney inspection and cleaning during the Fall and Winter. The Spring and Summer months are times when wind and rain may drive leaves, branches and debris down into your chimney. Animals and birds love to build nests in chimneys too adding to the blockage problems. This will allow time for any chimney cleanings or repairs to be taken care of prior to the burning season.
This also takes care of ensuring the chimney is safe and ready to use before the temptation of winter weather rolls around. Even if you did not have the time to schedule a chimney inspection before the burning season, it is not too late – our chimney sweeps are available year round for cleanings and inspections.
If it is determined that your chimney is ready for a sweep, our chimney sweeps will complete a thorough cleaning of your fireplace or appliance. The sweep includes removing built-up creosote, soot, and other byproducts of the fire from the chimney liner, smoke chamber, firebox, and damper. Once the chimney has been cleaned, you will be able to operate the system with the assurance that it is now ready for safe and efficient burning. Even small amounts of creosote can cause a chimney fire to start, so it is important that the chimney is clear of all flammable materials along the walls.
As professional chimney sweeps, we understand the value of our customer’s time so we make it a priority of ours to complete our job efficiently. We typically take no more than an hour for each chimney inspection or chimney sweep appointment. We also take care to respect your home and leave the area cleaner then we found it! The job of a chimney sweep can sometimes be messy, but we guarantee that none of that mess will be passed onto our customers.
When we are cleaning your chimney, it is a perfect time to inspect the entire system to make sure everything is operating properly. Loose bricks, mortar problems, cracked linings, deteriorating crowns or faulty chimney chase tops can be spotted and we can provide you with an accurate estimate to remedy the situation.
Annual chimney inspections will help to determine if a chimney sweep or repairs are necessary for your chimney. You can always count on the professional sweeps at Guardian to check your chimney and ensure its safety for the burning.
