The Sweeps n Ladders Chimney Sweeping Process for Richardson Homes

Sweeps n Ladders is dedicated to 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.

  • A tarp will be placed on the floor in front of the fireplace to keep the immediate area clean.
  • Any equipment we use will be placed on the tarp.
  • 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 Richardson Home, Swept?

This a harder question to answer than it sounds.  The most straightforward 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 have regular 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.
