Once September arrives, our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) Certified Chimney Sweeps are booked every day cleaning and inspecting chimneys. If you wait for too long to schedule your annual chimney sweeping and inspection, you may not be able to get the date and time that is most convenient for you.

Many national fire safety organizations like the CSIA and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend that homeowners have their chimneys swept and inspected before lighting the first fire of the Winter season to be sure everything is working properly and safely. To ensure your chimney is ready for that first fire, we recommend to our customers go ahead and schedule their chimney sweeping and inspection appointments in the late summer and avoid the annual Fall/Autumn rush.

Since many customers wonder what they can expect from our chimney maintenance services, we would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about a chimney sweeping and inspection from Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps begins by looking for creosote deposits.

To help determine whether sweeping is necessary and what tools will be needed, our certified chimney sweeps perform an initial inspection to see how much creosote has accumulated on the walls of your fireplace and flue. Creosote develops naturally during the burning process as the gases (smoke) exit the cooler upper part of your chimney. Creosote builds up into deposits on your interior chimney walls (the flue) and can ignite a frightening chimney fire if left to accumulate. Looking for these deposits and removing them, if they are there, is just one of the reasons you need your chimney checked annually. Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps can make your chimney ready to use by removing the creosote with a variety of appropriate equipment.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps protects your home from soot, dust, and debris.

Before our sweeps begin cleaning, they will cover the area surrounding your fireplace with drop cloths to keep it from getting dirty during the chimney sweeping process. A powerful vacuum cleaner is used to collect airborne soot.

Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps performs a Level 1 NFPA chimney inspection.

Our chimney sweeps will look for weather-related deterioration and damage, cracked chimney liners, flue blockages – literally any issue that could impact safety, usability or normal maintenance. If any problems are found, our sweeps will explain their findings and recommend resolutions.
