A DIY Chimney Sweep Vs. A Professional Chimney Cleaning: 3 Major Differences

You know that your chimney could use a good cleaning, but you don’t want to go through the process of hiring a company to do the work for you. We understand that it can be tough to tell if you’ve got a quality chimney technician working for you, but attempting to do the job on your own is not the way. Professional chimney cleaning helps you to stay safe, and it’s worth it to do some research and find a quality company rather than to attempt it on your own.

You Don’t Have the Right Tools

Chimney technicians who work for a local chimney company just have more of the tools and equipment to do the job right. Purchasing the right type and size of brushes and inspection equipment would be costly (most likely more so than just hiring someone else to do it). And of course, without the proper training, you might not even know how to use the tools you purchase to really get your chimney clean.

You Can Learn Something New from Your Chimney Sweep

Maybe you’ve been cleaning the fireplace cover incorrectly this whole time. Maybe the wood you’ve been burning is contributing to a quick buildup of creosote. Your technician can recognize if there is something you’ve been doing wrong, and help you to correct the problem in order to keep you safe.

You Cannot Spot the Dangers if You Don’t Have the Training

When you have years of training and experience, you will be able to recognize problems within the chimney fairly quickly. But until then, you should only allow a trained chimney sweep to look inside of your chimney and clean the interior safely. If there is a problem with the chimney structure or anything that could contribute to the spread of a fire, you need to know, and only a technician can help you to find out.
