Why Does Your Home, in McKinney, Need a Chimney Sweep?
Do you have the typical wood-burning fireplace in your McKinney home? If so, the wood used will not be completely burned. The smoke, from the fire, contains liquids, that are tar-like and unburned gases and vapors, which can result in a potentially dangerous build-up known as creosote. The rule of thumb, set by the National Fire Prevention Association, when creosote build-up exceeds 1/8 of an inch contact Sweeps n Ladders.
However, we understand that this is a hard thing to estimate or visually determine. As a solution, Sweeps n Ladders can set up a chimney sweeping schedule that accommodates your busy schedule taking away the stress of one more thing to remember.

Sweeps n Ladders is focused on making sure your chimney sweep experience is above and beyond your expectations. We have a process developed to clean your chimney and minimize the mess.

- Your chimney flue will be swept with the proper-sized brush. Brushing removes the loose creosote buildup.
- The firebox and smoke chamber will be swept and ready for use.
- Once on the roof, we will inspect the chimney for the condition of masonry, flashing, and the crown and look for other chimney issues.
- Ashes, in the firebox, are bagged for disposal.
How Often Should I Have the Chimney, in My McKinney Home, Swept?
Actually, this a harder question to answer than it sounds. The simplest answer is: The National Fire Protection Association standard 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.” This is a good guideline and rule of thumb. It is the national safety standard and the correct method to approach the problem. The bottom-line, even if you do not regularly use of your chimney, animals, including birds, may build nests in the flue or unseen issues may appear from deterioration, over time, that could make the chimney unsafe for use.
