No Mess chimney cleaning – an efficient & clean process eliminating the build-up of soot from coal, wood oil & gas fired systems.

What is chimney sweeping, and why is it necessary?

Chimney sweeping is the process of removing creosote buildup, soot, debris, and other obstructions from the chimney flue and other components. It is necessary to ensure proper airflow, prevent chimney fires, and maintain the safety and efficiency of your chimney.


How often should I have my chimney swept?

The frequency of chimney sweeping depends on several factors, including how often you use your fireplace or heating appliance, the type of fuel you burn, and the condition of your chimney. In general, it is recommended to have your chimney swept at least once a year to prevent creosote buildup and ensure optimal performance.


What are the signs that my chimney needs to be swept?

Signs that your chimney may need to be swept include difficulty starting fires, excessive smoke or odors when using your fireplace, visible creosote buildup inside the chimney, and debris falling into the fireplace. If you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to schedule a chimney sweep as soon as possible.
