Help clean my chimney?
My chimney must be cleaned, but there are no sweeps even close to our department! My problem is that my roof is very steep and I would prefer that my husband was not to fall off the roof. We have a wood stove so that the pipe has an angle of 90 degrees and the chimney does not descend to the seller and do NOT have a door out clean. Is it possible to clean the chimney from the bottom up? We bought brush and extensions that go with it, but they are a little stiff, is it a kind of foldable extensions, we could buy? If anyone knows of a sweep near Northern Maine I would appreciate the number. YES I am looking for already one and only place I could find never returned my calls, then went restaurant (go figure in northern Maine! Almost everyone has a woodstove here!)
The best place to find a chimney sweep is to contact the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and / or IFN (National Institute of chimney). Both company names, addresses, phone numbers and who are certified chimney sweep and also the list of results by zip code so you know which is closest to you. It is very important to ensure that the company you hire is certified. Unfortunately, the industry chimney sweeping is not regulated – meaning anyone can a sweep – and if you ask someone who does not know what they do, he may end up costing you more in the long term.
