Why does a chimney need sweeping?
Soot and creosote are by-products from burning wood that create fire hazards if left to accumulate for extended periods. Chimney sweeping removes dust and soot, but does more than just prevent fires. Increased air flow once a chimney is cleaned helps wood burn more efficiently and also minimizes or entirely eliminates soot odor. In addition, birds and other wildlife that typically create nests in chimney flues require regular, (humane) removal to prevent damage and deterioration.
