No, this is unnecessary. You don't have to supply any tools or equipment to the chimney specialists you hire, whether for cleaning, repairing or installing a chimney. You can expect the specialists you will find on Airtasker to have the right skills, along with years, sometimes decades of experience in plying their trade. While they have the necessary tools, you may still lend them anything that can make their job easier.
The time it takes to do repairs, cleaning or maintenance on a chimney can vary. Cleaning and maintenance can take 45 minutes to an hour, sometimes longer if there is a lot of stubborn creosote to remove. Repairs can take a few hours to a few days, depending on the severity of the damage and if any parts need replacement. Installing a new chimney can take weeks, significantly if a new hole must be cut into your roof.
Yes. You can hire a Tasker to help you with cleaning, maintaining or repairing chimneys if you offer this yourself. You'll find you can hire capable Taskers to do almost any job on our platform; it's only a matter of making a post with all the right details. You can employ Taskers that can help with most home maintenance jobs like an electrician, carpenter or insulation expert.
Yes. Your hired chimney repair specialist can fix a leaking chimney by repairing or replacing a cracked or broken flue cap. They can do this and many other repair or maintenance tasks for your chimney, provided you make a post on Airtasker with the relevant details. Post all the information about your chimney and modifications you think it might need so that we can match you to the most suitable Tasker.
Safety is the main reason for having your chimney cleaned. Not only is an overly dirty chimney dangerous to the health of everyone in your home - but it's also a fire hazard. Dirty chimneys have lots of soot and can also harbour a lot of creosote. Creosote is unburned wood that can build up and combust, causing fire to escape into the house and burn structures surrounding your chimney.
Your chimney should be cleaned at least once a year. However, the frequency of cleaning can also depend on the type of wood you use and how often you use the chimney. If you burn a lot of logs that are green and have a lot of moisture, these can create a lot of creosote. Have your chimney cleaned every 50 burns. Should you burn a lot of dry wood with less moisture, have a thorough cleaning every 70 burns.

What do chimney services include?
As part of home maintenance, construction and renovation, chimney repair and services include all the tasks necessary for chimney installation, repair and upkeep of your home's hearth. This service can consist of checking all the parts of your chimney for wear and doing the appropriate fixes. You can also hire this service to install a new or replacement chimney.
Inspecting the chimney cap
Chimney specialists do a thorough visual inspection of your chimney to determine the sort of maintenance measures or repairs needed. They can help you decide whether you need a chimney cap to keep the moisture and critters out. They can check the flue, masonry, flue liner and other vital parts of your chimney, then perform the necessary maintenance or do repairs with the appropriate tools.
Removing worn parts
Before installing a new or replacement chimney, your chimney specialist can disassemble an existing chimney, then set aside the old, worn chimney parts and place them in a storage area you choose. Some chimney specialists may offer to dispose of the old parts, but this can cost extra. Should you lack the space in your basement, cellar or attic for these old chimney parts and decide to get rid of them, you can hire another service to clear out your clutter first.
Installing a new chimney and flue cap
After thorough planning, your chimney specialist can proceed with installing your new chimney as necessary. They can cut holes on your roof and ceiling for the chimney flue, do the flue liner installation, flue cap installation, cowl fitting, masonry and install other parts of the chimney as necessary.
Some chimney specialists can do the carpentry work and cut out holes for the flue liner, although you may have to hire a separate service if more extensive modifications to your roof or ceiling are required. Once your new chimney is in place, don't forget that you can hire someone that can move or put in new wiring if you plan to have an above-fireplace TV.
Chimney maintenance & repairs
If your existing chimney only needs upkeep, your hired specialist can also perform chimney maintenance and repair. This can include fixing damaged chimney parts and removing accumulated soot and creosote.
Creosote is firewood that is not burned efficiently and in the worst cases, has turned into a highly combustible tar-like substance. Your chimney specialist can remove this residue safely and thoroughly - do note that creosote is the main cause of chimney fires. Your chimney specialist can also clean, fix or replace damaged flues, flue caps or chimney cowls.
