Chimney Sweeping Specialists
The Mad Hatter has specialized in Chimney Sweeping and Cleaning since 1978. It is the first service that we offered in 1978 and we still continue to hone and improve our service for you. All chimneys should be inspected annually and swept when needed to remove byproducts such as soot and creosote. This will help to prevent flue fires and ensure that dangerous fumes can exit your home. Our Service thoroughly inspects and cleans your Fireplace and Chimney so that you may have the peace of mind that you can operate and enjoy it safely. We will also recommend any repairs or modifications that are found upon inspection.
Chimney Sweeping & Cleaning Process
We use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep 1st- and 2nd-story chimneys of all kinds. While sweeping your system, we ensure that it’s in working order. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance and recommend what is needed for your system to burn cleanly and safely. On every sweep we use video inspection camera equipment to examine hidden parts of the flue.
The Mad Hatter will clean your chimneys with specially designed brushes and powered cleaning tools suitable for the type of chimney being swept and the type of residue being removed. Industrial vacuums are used for airborne dust control. Drop cloths or other measures are used to protect the homeowner’s furnishings.
Chimney Cleaning Time and Scheduling
You should allow 45 minutes to 2 hours for the Mad Hatter to clean your chimney. Inspection of the chimney and documentation may add to the length of the visit.
Different methods may be used to clean and sweep your chimney and fireplace depending on the style and build of your chimney. Your chimney may be swept from the bottom up, or from the top down, depending upon the need and judgement of our qualified technicians.
