Woodstove cleanings are like fireplace cleaning but are a bit more involved. Depending on the type of stove, the pipe may need to be pulled out of the firebox if it is an insert without a direct connection liner. If it is a freestanding stove, the pipe may need to be disconnected or may need to be swept from the top down.
Either way, we will thoroughly sweep the flue liner, clean out any excess buildup on the cap, sweep out the smoke shelf, and clean inside the firebox.
When inspecting a wood stove, we ensure the flue lining and cap are fully intact, and the firebox doesn't have any broken firebrick or cracks in the metal. We'll also check for proper clearances from flammable materials.
