Top Chimney Sweep related questions

No, you don’t need to provide any of these. The chimney sweep you book for this service is an expert with years of experience and has the requisite skills, tools and equipment. They know what tools work best, and you can expect them to arrive at your home or specified location with these tools. But if you have tools or equipment that you think can make their job easier, feel free to lend these to them. 

The time it takes to complete a chimney sweep service depends on a few factors. Cleaning a chimney of soot and creosote usually takes about 1 hour, but this can vary. If your chimney has other obstructions and pests that only a pest control expert can handle, give this an extra day or two. The amount of soot and creosote and how difficult they are to remove can likewise make the process take an hour longer. 

Yes! If you’re a chimney sweep yourself and need assistance, you can book a Tasker to help with the workload. Just make a post on our platform with all the crucial details. You’ll be matched with the most suitable Taskers nearby. It’s possible to hire Taskers for virtually any job you can think of, from pest control experts who can remove birds nests to cleaners who’ll remove the soot from your fireplace. 

Any chimney sweep you hire doesn’t need a licence to clean chimneys. However, they must have the requisite skills, training and must be a certified member of a recognised, professional association of chimney sweeps. This is important because trained, accredited, and experienced chimney sweeps know precisely how to clean chimneys of all the soot and accumulated creosote. Creosote is the leading cause of chimney fires and must be removed by a trained expert. 

Simply put, when chimneys become very dirty, they are fire and health hazards. Creosote, which is residue from unburnt wood, can build up within the flue over time. This residue can become flaky or tar-like in substance and can burst into flames the next time you use your chimney. It can also obstruct the flue and release deadly monoxide gas back into your home. Don’t put off cleaning your chimney; book an expert chimney sweep on Airtasker.

The commonly-held rule is to hire a chimney sweep at least once or twice a year, but only if you don’t use your chimney as often. Apart from the frequency, this can also vary depending on the type of wood you use. If you mostly use wood that has a lot of moisture, hire a chimney sweep after every 50 uses. Should you use drier wood, book a chimney sweep every 70 uses.

What do chimney sweep services include?

As a vital part of home maintenance, chimney sweep services include all the tasks necessary to clean out your chimney and ensure that it’s safe to use and remains efficient in warming your home. This is a complete chimney cleaning service provided by experts who can inspect, remove obstructions and clean out soot as well as potentially dangerous creosote from your chimney. 

Inspecting the chimney

Your hired chimney sweep begins the service with a thorough visual inspection. They can go up on your roof to check if the flue has any obstructions. Your chimney sweep can likewise check all the accessible nooks and crannies to see which areas need a good clearing up and cleaning. They can also take measurements of the flue to determine the width and length of the chimney brushes they must use. 

Preparing for cleaning

In preparation for cleaning, your hired chimney specialist can remove blockages in the flue or other vital and accessible parts of your chimney. They can remove twigs, dead leaves, birds’ nests or any other debris that may be obstructing the flue. Some chimney sweeps can deal with insect nests as long as they’re safe to remove. 

If your chimney sweep finds dangerous pests like wasps or snakes, we recommend you find a separate service to deal with the pests before proceeding with the chimney sweep and inspection. Depending on the size of your chimney and if your chimney sweep opts to clean the chimney from top to bottom, they may wrap the firebox and areas surrounding the fireplace in a protective plastic covering or a tarp.   

Cleaning the flue

Your chimney sweep can use brushes of the appropriate length and diameter to get into the flue and scrub loose all the soot and creosote. They do an upwards and downwards motion to loosen as much soot, creosote or other debris that has accumulated in the flue. The scrubbing continues until no more soot or creosote falls onto the chimney floor or hearth. Your specialist can then use an ash vacuum or a fireplace shovel and broom to scoop up all the soot, creosote and other debris. 

They may then remove any plastic covering on the firebox if this was used and dispose of all the collected soot, creosote and debris in the neighbourhood dumpster or skip. If your firebox has stubborn stains from smoke, some chimney sweeps may offer to clean these stains. 

Cleaning the chimney cap and stack

Your chimney sweep can go up on the roof to clean the chimney cap. They can partially disassemble, clean the chimney cap and its wire screen of accumulated soot and creosote. Afterwards, your Tasker puts the chimney cap back together.
