SWEEPING includes the sweeping of the cap, flue, smoke chamber, smoke shelf, damper, and firebox area. The cleaning is all done with brushes on fiberglass poles. A runner is laid down up to the fireplace as well as drop cloths so nothing is tracked on any carpeting at all. The heart of the sweeping system is a SootSweeper chimney vacuum running during the sweeping for proper dust control. While it is being swept the chimney is inspected for any cracks or defects and you are given a written evaluation report listing any areas of concern.
