Why Is It Important To Have Your Chimney Swept?

When it comes to fireplaces and their ventilation systems, scheduling cleanings and chimney inspections – regardless of how often or infrequently you use your appliance – is essential.

Why? Well, much like any other appliance in your home, in order for it to fulfill its intended lifespan and function properly and safely throughout it, it’s important to care for it accordingly. Most chimney fires and damage are 100% preventable when homeowners take the proper precautions and contact a professional to check out the internal state of the chimney – including brushing away any and all accumulated dirt, dust, soot, and, most importantly, creosote.

How often should this maintenance be done? The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) provide a good rule of thumb to help homeowners out…they recommend annual chimney inspections and sweeps: “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.” (NFPA Standard 211)

By following their guidance and scheduling a chimney inspection and sweep every year, you can enjoy lasting safety and peace of mind. Book with us today to get started.

What Happens During a Chimney Cleaning? Will It Be Messy?

Good news for homeowners in Sheridan, Noblesville, and more? When you hire Beck’s Chimney, you don’t have to worry about a mess in your home. We use drop cloths, HEPA-filter vacuums, and foot covers to ensure a mess-free cleaning every time.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect when you hire us for your chimney cleaning:

  • To start, we wear protective booties and lay down tarps to protect your flooring.
  • Once our tools are set up on one of the drop cloths, we get right to work cleaning the damper and checking for rust or damage.
  • Next, we get out our brushes and rods to clean the flue. We remove soot, creosote, and debris, and we capture everything we remove in a HEPA-filtered vacuum.
  • Then, we inspect the chimney thoroughly to note any issues or damages.
  • Finally, we look at the exterior of the chimney, assessing the masonry (or prefab paneling), crown/chase cover, flashing, and cap for damage, leaks, rust, improper fit/installation, or other concerning issues.

Once we’ve completed your inspection and cleaning, we’ll provide you with a detailed report. This report will specify any damage or concerns uncovered during the process, as well as any recommendations we have for repairs or preventive maintenance. That way, you know exactly what needs to be done – if anything – so you can budget, prioritize, and plan.

Casey explained things well, answered all my questions on fireplace maintenance and cleaned/tested it. Also, tested air flow on dryer vent and confirmed not necessary to clean. Appreciated his honesty. I’d recommend using Beck’s.

How Long Does It Take a Chimney Sweep To Clean a Chimney?

A great question with an unfortunately vague answer – it depends. Because every chimney and fireplace system is different in terms of fuel type, flue size, chimney length, general state, etc., it’s hard to confidently quantify how long your chimney sweep service might take.

On average, though, most chimney sweepings will take around 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Here’s are some scenarios that offer more specifics on the matter…

  • Let’s say you go to great lengths to care for your chimney by ensuring your firewood has been appropriately seasoned, burning those super hot fires, and staying on top of your regular, preventive maintenance. While your flue will still show signs of use and contain creosote deposits, it most likely won’t be anything that is too terribly difficult to brush away and remove. This means your chimney sweeping service would probably take less than an hour from start to finish.
  • Now, if you’ve never once scheduled a professional cleaning, aren’t too particular about the wood (or any other materials) you burn, and have noticed there is quite a bit of dark and gunky buildup clinging to parts and pieces of your appliance, your chimney cleaning service will be a bit more involved – and, as a result, will take longer.
  • One more situation to note…there is always a possibility we find debris and/or signs of animals – sometimes even the critters themselves – which can also affect the length of the service, as well as the final price.

One thing is certain no matter what, though – the Beck’s team is prompt and professional and always aims to be as efficient as possible. For answers to questions about service specifics and what it might look like for your home, don’t hesitate to contact someone from our team.
