Cleaning a chimney pipe is something that all homeowners should do at least once every two years. A brick chimney pipe offers a lot of places for flammable debris and other things to hide. It is difficult to properly scrub the inside of a brick chimney, and that can create years of dangerous build up. A metal chimney pipe offers a smooth and uniform surface to clean. An experienced chimney sweep can clean a metal chimney pipe in a matter of minutes. All of the dangerous debris is removed, and your chimney is left clean and safe for more years of use.
