Title: Chicago chimney sweeps


1
Are There Still Chimney SweEPS ?

  • Many of us think of chimney sweeps and our minds
    go back to Mary Poppins, where the cheerful
    chimney sweeps were dancing around and enjoying
    themselves on the roof. Even though those soot
    covered professionals dont climb around on our
    roofs anymore, there are a lot of people who
    still do the job of chimney sweeping.

What is a Chimney Sweep?
  • A chimney sweep is, simply, the guy or gal that
    comes and cleans out your chimney. There are lots
    of different things that get stuck in your
    chimney during the wintertime, so its important
    to clean it out on a regular basis. The cleaning
    process is a complicated, and often dangerous one
    and, unless youre trained to do it, its better
    off just to call a professional in to come and
    take care of it for you. This actually costs a
    lot less to do it because the Chicago chimney
    sweeps already have all of the tools that they
    need in order to take care of the cleaning
    process.

What Do Chimney Sweeps Do?
  • When a chimney sweep comes to your house, theyre
    going to do a few things in order to make sure
    that your chimney is completely cleared out of
    everything. The chimney sweep will come to the
    house to open up two different vents the soot
    hatch and the sweeping hatch. As you likely know,
    soot is produced in the chimney when things are
    burning. The soot builds up after awhile, and as
    it builds up, it can cause dangers to you and
    your family. If you dont clean it, there could
    end up being a fire or another unwanted issue
    going on with your chimney. When they open these
    two hatches, theyre going to use their brooms
    and other special tools to sweep and scrape out
    all of the soot that has gotten stuck in there.

  • The process is pretty quick, taking about 10 to
    20 minutes. Many times, you can get an inspection
    done at the same time, just to make sure that
    your chimney is still intact and that there
    arent any cracks or other issues that may come
    up for you.

  • Chicago chimney sweeps play a pretty important
    role in helping us to keep our homes safe,
    especially if we are depending on our fireplace
    or woodstove to be our primary source of heat
    during those chilly winter nights. If you havent
    gotten your chimney cleaned in awhile, make sure
    that you call one soon so that they can get you
    set up and ready to go.
