While your chimney may not require frequent cleaning, it’s worth noting that the National Fire Protection Association recommends an annual chimney inspection. This practice significantly reduces the risk of a house fire. Our skilled technicians at Allstar perform comprehensive multi-point inspections, allowing them to meticulously assess every facet of your chimney and fireplace.
To keep you informed and engaged, our technicians capture images throughout the inspection process and furnish you with a comprehensive condition report after completing the services. Beyond chimney sweeps, our offerings encompass waterproofing, animal removal, installations, and repairs, enabling us to effectively address any chimney and fireplace maintenance requirements.
Neglecting the assessment of your chimney or fireplace can have profound consequences on both you and your home. Given the propensity of chimneys to absorb precipitation, common deterioration can occur over time. Comparable to a sponge, a masonry chimney absorbs and releases water, causing the breakdown of bricks and mortar, eventually leading to a leaky chimney. This leakage results in brick discoloration, rusted components, mold development, and unpleasant odors. Such water-related issues extend to prefabricated chimneys as well, resulting in similar outcomes. Consequently, even if your chimney is not in active use, periodic inspection remains vital for ensuring your safety and averting potential costly damages to your home.
To preempt unforeseen challenges arising from a neglected chimney, Allstar Chimney Sweep Eclectic stands prepared to assist you in scheduling your annual inspection promptly. By taking this step, you can ensure that your chimney does not pose a threat to your home and well-being.

What Exactly do we do so Well?
So you are looking to get your chimney swept… What exactly should you expect? A huge mess? A two-hour drag? Something quick and easy that you don’t have to pay too much mind?
Likely the sweep will first come to check and prepare the area for sweeping. They they proceed to clean out the chimney of any residue left from use, as well as water and possibly animal debris. Then a quick and procedure primarily based on inspecting the chimney for any issues before informing the customer of any repairs they may need done.
The average chimney sweep should take around an hour, though a longer slot may be scheduled just in case something goes wrong or the chimney just needs that extra time to get cleaned out. When the visit is done however, everything should be cleaned up and you should not be able to even tell that a chimney sweep was there.
The Tools of the Trade
Sadly there is likely to be a mess if you use your chimney and only get it swept once per year. However, there should not be too much worry about your hand as the sweepers likely will come with a vacuum on hand to get up anything that falls loose.
As for what will be falling, likely soot and tar, often time creosote, as the sweep goes and brushes it out, the sweepers use metal bristled brushes attached to long rods to scrap the settlement off the inner walls. They will also be outfitted in gloves, goggles, and masks to protect themselves from soot and ash.
The sweeps also will have some actual technology on them. While the brushes may be motorized, it can be hard to get a good look into a chimney with just the human body. So they may bring cameras and other inspection equipment to check for weathering, leaks, or any obstructions within the chimney.
They likely will also bring mats to put down so as not to stain any carpet. This is just for the customer’s satisfaction and to help ease cleaning as some of the stuff scrapped out that lands in the fireplace may be toxic.
There are many things a chimney sweep may find and many ways they may go about the sweep. Some go up from the flue and others down from the access, with the primary goal just being to clean those bits of any residue or grime that may have settled upon them.
They are also trained to handle animals, who often find chimneys an ideal location due to being protected from the elements, dark, closed off, and usually quiet. The sweepers will be able to remove these animals safely and dissuade them from returning.
While not the primary goal, a sweeper will also inspect the entire chimney for any engineering needs. They may not have the tools on hand to address the issues—especially if the problem is due to water damage—but will inform you of anything they find and how it is best dealt with. This can range from just needing a part replaced or a new lining to rebuilding a massive chunk of the chimney.
