Chimney sweeping feels like a lost art that you might see in movies like Fiddler on the Roof or Oliver Twist – but the truth is that thousands of homes across America still have traditional chimneys that need traditional cleaning.

Did you know chimney sweeping still exists in modern times – but using a timeless approach?

Here’s how modern chimney sweeps get to work, and why you should hire a professional rather than take on the job yourself.

Why Chimneys?

Chimneys and wood-burning stoves are a cheaper alternative to gas or electric heating – and fires just happen to have a nice, warm touch at the best of times. Many choose to have chimneys newly installed, while others already have them in their home when they move in and just decide to have them cleaned up for use.

What’s Changed in Chimney Sweeping?

Chimney sweeping uses the same techniques to remove dirt, dust and soot – but today, we have much more effective chemicals and tools to help us do the job. Modern chimney sweeping is a lot more effective for the chimney, and a lot less dangerous for the people who do it.
