Click here to see my Chimney Sweep video.

Join me as I show you how perform a Chimney Sweep from top to bottom. I start with talking about the tools used to clean the flue. I use a round wire brush and several flexible fiberglass rods. I also have my DeWalt impact Driver to make things go faster. Then I proceed with disassembly, First I remove the cap. It only has one screw that needs to be loosened and it will lift off.

Next I remove the braces for the flue so I can remove the top section of the chimney. I do this because if I don’t, I have trouble getting the brush down and then back up the chimney. I also show what the creosote looks like at this point. It is a hard and crusty substance that builds up on the inside of your chimney. If not cleaned out it can catch on fire and / or reduce the air flow up your chimney to the point that your wood stove will smoke up your house.

I had to stop for a couple of days because it started raining. Next we demonstrate cleaning the top. I show how to dissemble the top and the tools I use to clean it. It does not need to sparkle, just fairly clean. Then I reinstall the topper on the top of the chimney.

Next I take you inside my house to my Fisher Mama Bear Wood Stove. I proceed to demonstrate cleaning the stove with a few more tips. And then I am done. I will need to clean up around the outside of the stove dut it’s ready for a fire.
