Let’s be honest, the inside of your chimney is a messy place. After a winter of collecting soot, ash, and creosote, it’s no wonder that some homeowners are afraid of what might come out of their fireplace when it’s time for a sweeping. Fireplaces are oftentimes located in areas where they are aesthetically pleasing and cozy. This means they are usually surrounded by furniture, carpet, lamps, and other home decors. Because the inside of chimneys can get so messy, it’s only natural that homeowners have a concern about their nice belonging becoming soiled with soot, ash, and creosote. We here at TN Fireplace and Chimney also know how messy chimney cleaning can be. However, by taking the right precautions and using the right techniques, we promise that we can give your chimney a thorough cleaning all while keeping your living areas spot free!
So, how do we keep your place spotless when performing such a messy job? Listed below are some of the tools and techniques that we use when cleaning your chimney.
Foot coverings – Foot coverings are plastic coverings that are placed over our shoes. They protect your flooring from any soot or ash that may have gotten on our shoes when cleaning a chimney.
Furniture moving – We’ll move any furniture away from the fireplace. This not only allows us to keep your furniture clean, it also gives us a large, and therefore safer, work space to move around in.
Tarps – We’ll place tarps all around our work space to protect all flooring and furniture from soot, ash, and creosote that might come out of your chimney.
HEPA vacuum – We place HEPA vacuums near our work space to catch any tiny particles of soot and ash that might be floating in the air. HEPA vacuums don’t just suck air in. Once the air is brought into the vacuum, powerful HEPA filters remove any dust, soot, or ash from the air before pushing it back into your home.
Professionalism – If you’re letting a service person into your living space, you want to know that they are going be respectful and courteous. At TN Fireplace & Chimney our chimney sweeps will treat your home as if it was their own. Gaining your trust is our business’s top priority and we want you to know that you can always depend on us to put your safety and the health of your home at the top of our priority list.
