Modern Chimney Sweeps
Chimney sweeping is no longer the Mary Poppins-like task that many people imagine. During the normal operation of a chimney burning wood, a layer of creosote will build up inside the chimney which restricts airflow. The chimney sweeps come in and clean the creosote out because it is flammable.
Tools of the Trade
The traditional brush is still used to clean, but more modern tools are employed as well. Cameras create a safer job for the sweeps so they can see inside the really tight spaces without going into the chimney and vacuums which keep the soot contained and out of the air.
Professional Chimney Sweeps
Aardvark chimney sweeps are trained to diagnose and repair hazards. Our number one priority is hazard repair that can cause an imminent threat. The next priority is maintenance such as removal of flammable creosote, firebox and damper repair, and smoke chamber repair.
