Since 1985, we have been saving homes from dangerous chimney fires.
A master technician completes all the work and includes a written service report (most companies charge extra). We also do safety inspections and sell and install chimney caps and bird screens.
A recent Edmonton Journal article mentions (see above), every working chimney's flue must be inspected and cleaned every year, no exception. Creosote (or soot for short) is extremely combustible, and it can build up on the inside of your chimney flue. If it isn't properly cleaned, all that is needed is a single spark and you can have total ignition of your fireplace and your home.
