Why You Should Hire a Professional to Clean Your Chimney

Cleaning your chimney is not an easy task, and you might be thinking, “How hard can it be?” But the truth is, properly cleaning your chimney is not like other household chores—it requires more time, experience and effort than you may have. At Pagosa Peak Custom Fireplaces, we are certified to perform fireplace and chimney inspections. Here are three reasons why you should let us handle your chimney cleaning.

The right tools for the job

A combination of soot, ash and creosote buildup in your chimney makes for a dirty job. Professionals have the proper protective equipment as well as industrial-strength vacuums to keep you and your home from being covered in all of the gunk that comes out of your chimney. That way you can rest assured knowing that  once the job is done, you won’t find leftover residue on your furniture or walls.

Saves you time

Cleaning your chimney is no easy feat, and for someone that is unfamiliar with chimney sweeping, the task can take hours to do properly. Rather than struggle through the process and finish only to realize you didn’t do a good job, let an experienced professional take care of the mess.

Proper insurance and certifications

The most important part of hiring a professional is the level of experience that they have in properly executing the task at hand. Our staff provides Level 1, 2 & 3 inspections that meet the specific standards of NFPA 211.

Chimney cleaning also requires certain risks such as getting on top of the roof and exposure to harmful elements. Reduce your chances of harm and let an experienced professional take care of the dangerous aspects of chimney and fireplace maintenance.
