Its probably time to have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a professional! We will clean out all the harmful creosote from the chimney and leave your room looking exactly how it didwhen we arrived. Whenever Safeway cleans a chimney, we also perform a 22-point inspection and video scan. We pride ourselves in providing piece of mind to our customers by addressing any and all of their concerns.

How often should I have my fireplace cleaned?

  • Annually or when you’ve had more than 30 fires since the last time you had it cleaned
  • If you’ve recently purchased a home or are planning too.

How do you clean the chimney?

We first bring in all of our equipment and tarp off the entire area around the fireplace with drop cloths rated for fine particulate. We begin by roto-sweeping all of the walls in your fireplace chimney from the firebox up, all of the dust, debris, and allergens will fall down into the fireplace which will be contained by a HEPA vacuum specifically designed for the job at hand. Its important to have a professional clean your system to ensure everything is removed.

How often should I have my chimney inspected?

  • Annually
  • Before a new appliance is installed into the chimney. (Furnace, Water Heater, Boiler, Gas Logs, or Fireplace insert)
  • Before purchasing a home
  • Immediately after having a flue fire
  • Whenever you notice soot or black staining in or around the fireplace and chimney.

Blockages in the Chimney can cause and toxic fumes such as Carbon Monoxide to enter the residence. Safeway Chimney Sweeps provides all chimney inspections in accordance with a level 2 inspection.
