Certified Chimney Sweep Cranbury NJ - Chimney CleaningChimney Sweep — Chimney Cleaning & Inspections.

Our primary job is to remove chimney deposits and evaluate the overall condition of the chimney system. Our goal is to provide recommendations that will improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system.

There are several reasons to remove chimney deposits:
  • To ensure that the appliance vents properly to the outdoors.
  • To prevent chimney fires.
  • To reduce or eliminate chimney odors.
  • To remove blockages that could cause carbon monoxide gases to enter the home.
  • To prevent deterioration of the chimney interior caused by acids in the deposits.
There is no single answer for how often a chimney should be cleaned. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that chimneys be inspected at least once a year and cleaned as necessary.

The required cleaning frequency will depend on amount of use, the type of installation, the type of fuel, and the burning habits of the homeowner. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in excess of 1/8 inch should be removed. Frequent, at least annual, inspections are the only way to know when the chimney requires cleaning. We employ a variety of cleaning techniques to remove chimney deposits. The method chosen or recommended for your chimney will depend on the type of deposits. Several cleaning methods are described below:

Standard Sweeping

This is the standard or normal cleaning method and involves the use of brushes to clean the chimney walls. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the home. This type of cleaning is effective for soot and ordinary creosote deposits but has little effect on glaze deposits.

Mechanical Sweeping

Mechanical cleaning involves the use of wire brushes, plastic cables or special chains rotated at high speed by an electric motor. Mechanical cleaning is often employed to remove hard creosote or glaze deposits.
