Chimney Sweep New Orleans, Louisiana

Sootaway chimney sweep New Orleans knows that fireplaces and chimneys are very important to maintain. As one of the riskiest areas of the home, when not properly maintained, fireplaces can become very dangerous. With that being said, if you own a fireplace, you should consider getting your chimney cleaned by a professional chimney sweep team. Professional chimney sweeps can help minimize the risks of owning a fireplace and ensure your chimney is properly maintained. The Sootaway team consists of experienced chimney sweeps serving New Orleans, Louisiana. We help our clients feel secure with their fireplace so they can enjoy it anytime they want. Before discussing the benefits of our services, let’s cover what chimney sweeps do.

What is a Chimney Sweep?

A chimney sweep is a professional chimney technician who ensures homes are safe to use in their fireplaces. Since the 1700s, fireplace owners have known cleaning their chimneys is a risky task. Homeowners would seek the help of young boys who would climb up their chimney to clean each brick and tile in the interior. Thankfully, commercial-grade equipment has taken that job away from children. Despite people knowing for over 300 years that chimney cleaning is very important, many people neglect to do this task, or they attempt to do it themselves.

New Orleans Chimney Sweeps are highly trained workers who have the proper equipment to clean chimneys thoroughly. Most homeowners do not have the necessary tools to get up and inside the chimney. To reach the entire chimney a pro needs the proper tools. A professional chimney sweep will use extendable brushes, specialized cleaning agents, and even cameras to ensure your chimney is completely clean. With that being said, hiring professional chimney sweep New Orleans, such as those at Sootaway, has a multitude of benefits.

Dangers of Creosote

Unfortunately, creosote is an unavoidable side effect of using your wood-burning fireplace. Creosote is a type of residue that results from burning wood. Creosote sticks to the walls of your chimney, and excessive buildup can lead to hazards such as odors in the home or chimney fires. Because creosote is the leading cause of chimney fires, the National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney annually. Your Sootaway chimney sweeps are experienced in cleaning chimneys and removing creosote and are happy to assist you.

“Great company, amazing service. They came on time, and let me know 30 minutes before they got there.”

Fantastic company. They came out to fix a leak in my chimney and didn’t charge me until after the storms passed and I knew it was held. Awesome work, thanks Sootaway

Sootaway did a fantastic job on my chimney! They came out, swept my chimney, and managed to keep my white carpets clean while they did it!

Explore New Orleans

Sootaway New Orleans

New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.

French Quarter

French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré, is the heart and soul of this city, and it’s also a National Historic Landmark. As the site of the original New Orleans colony (established by the French in 1718), the French Quarter has held on to its heritage, complete with street names that are still listed in French. Wander the narrow cobblestone streets to find such attractions as Jackson Square, Faulkner House Books, and the Cabildo.

Frenchmen Street

A popular spot for locals, Frenchmen Street is a four-block stretch of live music, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and art galleries. Here, not only will you find fewer crowds (albeit not by much), but you’ll also encounter cheaper eats and drinks, and better music – it’s kind of like Bourbon Street’s hipper, trendier cousin.

Garden District

This historic residential neighborhood is laden with trees, ivy, and yes, gardens. Visitors rave about the beautiful houses and architecture. Some even preferred the Garden District over Bourbon Street, citing the peaceful atmosphere and well-preserved properties as a much-needed break from the city’s crowded tourist spots.

The National WWII Museum

The brainchild of Stephen Ambrose – a best-selling author and consultant on the film “Saving Private Ryan” – the museum also features oral recantations of civilians’ and soldiers’ experiences throughout the early 1940s. The museum offers a unique educational experience, though recent travelers cautioned that some of the displays may be too disturbing for children. Past visitors said you can’t leave without watching the “Beyond All Boundaries” 4-D movie, narrated by the film’s executive producer, Tom Hanks.

New Orleans Swamp Tours
A mix of saltwater and freshwater, the bayous are home to crawfish, shrimp, deer, and alligators, which are often the main attraction for visitors. Travelers generally enjoy their tours, no matter which company they choose, but do warn that going in the winter could mean fewer wildlife sightings.
