Minneapolis Chimney Cleaning Process Explained
A question we hear a lot is can you explain the chimney cleaning process. A lot of Minneapolis homeowners as well as those around the Twin Cities have asked us what is involved and how the process works. So for that reason, we are going to explain in more detail so you will better understand the process of cleaning a chimney. We hope it will help make your decision in hiring the right chimney sweep a little easier.
Our Chimney Cleaners Work in Rain, Sleet, Snow…
First of all we are able to provide chimney cleaning in all kinds of weather including snow, unless there are blizzard conditions which would make it unsafe for our technicians. Every house is different so we may use multiple options of cleaning on each and every home. For the most part we always try to go on the roof if it is accessible, but not all homes are very easy to clean from the roof down, so in most cases we go from the actual fireplace it’s self and work our way up. Whether working from the roof, or through the fireplace, both ways are equally as effective and there is no mess with either method.
Proper Cleaning Involves Professional Equipment
We use only high quality equipment for cleaning chimneys and our technicians are fully certified and trained to do each and every job. If the home is close enough to where we park our van, we use the high pressured truck-mounted vacuum hose. In some cases where the van hose is not able to reach we may have to use our twelve and a half horsepower portable vacuum, which also does a tremendous job.
Remove the Ash, then Brush the Creosote Away
For the actual cleaning we first use a high powered air wand to blow off the soot and ash from the chimney. Then we use a high quality steel brush to thoroughly clean the inside bricks to make sure there is no residue left. Now your home will be fully capable of having a safe and secure fire on a cold winters day!
We hope the information we have given you will help you better understand the techniques we use and the quality that goes into our workmanship, here at http://ductcleaningtwincities.com.
