Free Standing vs. Wood Stove Insert Cleaning

A wood stove is usually made of cast iron and comes in two types: freestanding and insert.

A wood stove insert is made to sit inside an open front fireplace. If they have the proper lining, they will have a direct connection to the top of the chimney, keeping your fireplace and chimney cleaner. Without this liner, a chimney sweep must move the extremely heavy wood stove out of the fireplace to access and clean the area behind the insert and the smoke chamber and smoke shelf, which may incur extra costs.

A free-standing wood stove does not sit in a fireplace, but rather exists on its own. They are more difficult to clean since they usually require some disassembly. The pipe that runs from your free-standing wood stove to the ceiling, turning into a chimney, must be disconnected, cleaned, and then reconnected, which can be a challenge depending on the age of your stove.

Why Have A Step in Time Maryland, LLC Clean Your Wood Stove?

With a specialty item like a wood stove, you should call on experienced service providers who will take the extra care required when handling the unique and technical process of cleaning it. Regular cleaning companies in Odenton, MD may not know how to disassemble a wood stove safely and can damage the structure of your home.

Alternatively, they may only provide surface-level cleanings when a more thorough cleaning is necessary for your wood stove to continue safe operation. If you burn wood in your wood stove regularly, call A Step in Time Maryland, LLC to be sure the buildup of creosote is cleaned properly at least once a year.

"Had a great experience with A Step in Time Maryland, LLC. The owner came out on a weekend to evaluate our fireplace and provided us a fair estimate. He was direct and very comprehensive. The repairmen came out the next week and went above and beyond their duties. They even color-matched the inside of our fireplace! He guaranteed us 25 years to a lifetime warranty on all of our repairs. We thank you for keeping our home safe for years to come."

"A Step In Time Maryland, LLC is the only sweep I’ll ever use. They will inspect and advise on repairs without using pressure. Check around with other sweeps and compare their prices and be sure to understand the materials being used. They inspected mine and advised on repairs...others could not compare to the stainless steel material and their price. You will end up with A Step In Time Maryland, LLC!"

Tom S.

"Met with the owner for the first time yesterday for a chimney liner replacement, and was able to get scheduled right away. Workers came in (on time), did a fast job, and left a really clean space behind. Good people to work with. Would definitely call them again. Thanks!"
