How can we clean chimneys?
There are two ways to clean the chimney: from above and below.
The traditional form has always been from above, using the so-called “weigh”, and that until today has proven effective. But the risk of falls, the breaking and sliding of tiles, as well as the limitations imposed by the climatology in many cases advise against its use.
The current form of cleaning with the new tools and equipment available, from the interior of the house make this system more advisable as far as facilities permit.
