The 6 Point Chimney Sweep & Check


1) Perform a  thorough chimney sweeping and cleaning.

2) Check the chimney cap, flashing and masonry for any sign of water penetration.

3) Check the chimney liner for soundness – no cracks or other damage.

4) Check the damper for proper function, ensuring it opens and closes smoothly and easily.

5) Check for a safe burning circumference within the fireplace – minimally 18” clearance from anything that could easily catch flame (such as curtains or furniture).

6) Check fireplace for appropriate safety screen or fireplace doors to guard against explosive ember and for proper ash maintenance and removal.
