How-To Clean a Chimney

chimney_sweep.jpgA clean chimney is important (ever heard the sound of a chimney fire?) and if you've got a manageable roof, there's no reason why you can't do the cleaning yourself. It's easy, relatively quick, and you can get all of the equipment you need for about $75 dollars.

Of course, if you've got a steep roof, don't do it yourself. Hire a professional; he knows how to get up there and how to not kill himself. We repeat. If you're not comfortable on your roof, DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN YOUR OWN CHIMNEY.

We've assembled a few articles that can give you some help with this yearly clean-out.

I've never heard nor seen a chimney fire and I sure don't plan on either of those happening at my house after reading about it. My roof isn't sttep so I think I'll clean my own. No fires for me thanks!
