Chimney Sweepers have existed for around 200 years. Poems by William Blake and a rich tradition of good luck follow the life of the modern chimney sweeper cleaning chimneys in America, Europe, and especially England.

All manufacturers of fireplaces chimneys and vents recommend annual chimney sweeping, chimney cleaning, and chimney inspection. We continue here with a short list of commonly used vocabulary.
It is important to learn some of the chimney sweepers vocabulary which is used in all 50 states:
One of the byproducts of the crackling fire that we all enjoy so much is creosote being carried up into the chimney’s flue. Some of the soot and creosote coats the walls because it cools and sticks as it drifts upward. If the creosote becomes thick, and a large fire is built so that flames reach up past the firebox into the chimney where the creosote is, it can catch fire. Fire can quickly and silently spread to other parts of the home. Heavy creosote can also hinder the flow of carbon monoxide, a dangerous, odorless gas, through the chimney and outside the home. Carbon monoxide, as everyone knows, can be a silent killer.
