Chimney Cleaning Minneapolis
Your home’s chimney is an integral part of your home heating system. And just like your furnace, it requires inspections and maintenance to keep it running as it should. An unclean, unkempt chimney can be a potential danger to your home and family. That is why routine cleaning, maintenance and repair should be taken seriously. Vent Guys has been providing quality chimney cleaning for Minneapolis and the surrounding areas for many years.
The process of burning wood creates a residue called creosote that coats the inside of the chimney flue. Creosote is highly combustible, especially as the buildup increases, and should be removed regularly with a chimney cleaning or sweep. Creosote build up is one of the main causes of chimney fires.
Chimney cleaning removes creosote as well as other debris or hazards like leaves and animal nests. It’s important to have this cleaning done regularly to prevent a chimney fire. Typically, cleaning is done once a year, but it may be needed more often depending on how often you use your fireplace and the type of wood you burn.
So don’t put off this essential maintenance task any longer! Give us a call and we can help in chimney cleaning, inspection and repair.
Chimney Cleaning from Vent Guys
Not sure if chimney cleaning is necessary for your home? Contact the professionals at Vent Guys so we can come out for an inspection and recommend a plan of action. And, if cleaning is necessary, it’s a fairly quick and straightforward process. Cleaning involves using a cleaning rod and brush to remove debris and creosote from the chimney flue. The work can be done from either the fireplace (bottom-up) or rooftop (top-down). If done inside, we lay a tarp down to protect the area of your home around the fireplace. A HEPA-filtered vacuum will then be used to collect the debris. It’s no secret what being a chimney sweep is a pretty dirty job but we strive to leave your home exactly the way we found it.
Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. This means they have been trained and tested on the best practices for preventing and correcting chimney and venting system hazards. They are committed to eliminating residential chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other chimney-related hazards.
Whether it’s an issue you notice or one we find when doing a regular cleaning and inspection, we will make sure your chimney is functioning properly. Contact us today!
