Our promise of a clean and mess-free inspection and cleaning procedure
Despite seeming simple, chimney sweeping is a complex task requiring professional expertise for proper execution. It demands considerable experience and is crucial for maintaining your chimney and protecting your Mobile, AL, home and loved ones.
When you're using vented appliances like stoves, fireplaces, furnaces, and more, your chimney is working relentlessly to safely contain and expel harmful substances. However, with time, residues like creosote (a byproduct of unburnt flue gases settling inside your chimney) can build up, causing obstructions and even dangerous chimney fires. A chimney fire can reach temperatures exceeding 2000 degrees, melting mortar, causing flue tiles to crack, and, in extreme cases, setting the highly flammable wooden framework of a house ablaze. A trained chimney sweep expert in Mobile, AL, will meticulously and safely scrape off and eliminate all creosote and debris, ensuring your chimney is safe and in optimal working condition. After the chimney sweep, our technicians will carry out a 21-point safety examination of your fireplace and chimney to certify its safe operation.
Chimney sweeping is an affordable, crucial part of your home maintenance in Mobile, AL, that guarantees your safety and saves you money over time.
