A Traditional Wire
Brushing is Still the
Only Way

The Priddy Clean Sweep team will clean from the floor of the firebox to the top of the chimney. This "Bottom to Top" method is the modern and recommended procedure for cleaning.



Preventing Fires

The buildup of creosote, a byproduct of burning wood, can cause chimney fires. Keep your chimney cleaned regularly to prevent this problem. Burning hardwoods such as oak or maple, rather than softwoods like pine or spruce, lessens the buildup of creosote.

Why Should You Have Your Chimney Cleaned?
The main reason you should have your chimney cleaned is to remove flammable creosote which accumulates inside your chimney. If these harmful deposits of soot and creosote are allowed to build up, they will eventually lead to a chimney fire.

Another important reason to have your chimney cleaned is to clear the flue to allow the toxic exhaust gasses to escape. Blocked furnace flue is among the leading causes of carbon monoxide poisonings.

Priddy Clean Chimney Sweeps understands chimney systems and their ventilation requirements. Our Sweeps will clean your chimney flue from the “bottom –up” – the modern and most recommended procedure for efficiently cleaning a chimney flue. Once the flue has been cleaned, our sweeps will inspect your chimney from the ground-up and provide you with a written record of service which will state the current condition of your chimney.
