Chimney cleaning, Middlebury CT
Chimney Cleaning Services
The first part of the chimney sweeping process is for a trained chimney sweep to thoroughly inspect the fireplace and chimney. Homeowners or tenants who use real fires or wood burners should have this done annually. A Four Seasons Chimney & Roofing, LLC technician looks inside the chimney to see if accumulated soot is present. If so, he will clean the chimney. If he notices any damage, he will alert you to it and provide a price for repair.
Did we mention that chimney cleaning is a messy job? You’d never know it after Four Seasons Chimney & Roofing, LLC gets done cleaning your chimney! To protect your home, our chimney sweep spreads large drop cloths over the floor and any necessary furnishings. He will cover the fireplace opening if necessary with a plastic sheet and tape this to the side of the fireplace. The sweep then sets up a high-power industrial vacuum cleaner to suck up soot and debris as it is removed from the chimney with the sweep brush.

Do I need to be home for the appointment?
Yes, chimney sweeps and full inspection of fireplace chimney, furnace flue, and dryer vents require interior home access. Most importantly, if something comes up during the inspection, your technician’s visual equipment will give you first-hand knowledge of what, where, when, why, and how to rectify the issue.
How often should I have my chimney cleaned?
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) code 211 says, “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.” Annual inspection with a fireplace chimney sweep as required. This is the National safety standard!
Why do I need to have my chimney cleaned?
Chimney sweeps are for integrity purposes, cleaning, and obstruction-free assurance. Creosote, also known as soot, is a natural byproduct of burning wood. As the smoke goes up your fireplace chimney, creosote clings to the inner walls of your chimney. Creosote is highly flammable and causes chimney fires.
