    I have the Viper GFX Extra Large Chimney cleaning system, and have a 5 inch stainless steel chimney liner that is used to vent a coal boiler that I have to clean. I found the 6 inch plastic brush to fit the Viper, but can't seem to find the recommended 7 inch plastic brush that will fit the Viper to clean the chimney. I don't know if they don't make one or if it's just not listed. If you don't have one could you please advise as to what I should use to clean the chimney.
    1 Answer
    There will not be a 7" brush, so I recommend purchasing an 8" brush and trimming this down to 7".

    I have a wood burning fireplace insert with a 6" stainless steel double wall chimney about that is about 33 feet tall. What is the best product/kit for cleaning this chimney pipe?
    1 Answer
    For a factory built stainless chimney system, only a poly brush such as the Rutland Professional's Choice 50 Round Poly Chimney Cleaning Brush - 6 Inch Diameter with the Rutland Heavy-Duty Fiberglass Chimney Rods. These heavier duty rods will be strong enough to push the brush the entire length of the chimney from the bottom up without issue.

    What chimney cleaning brush should I use on my Secure Temp 6" ID chimney pipe?
    1 Answer
    For a 6" pipe, you will want to go with a brush that is either 6" or slightly larger, such as the AW Perkins 6 Inch Round Wire Chimney Brush with 1/4 Inch Point Thread.

    I have two 8x8 chimney flues for my boiler and downstairs wood burning stove and a 12x12 that is being lined for a wood burning fireplace insert. I am in search of the necessary products to clean these chimney flues. They are also mostly straight without any hard bends. When the insert adapter piping needs to be cleaned I plan on removing them from the unit and chimney flue. What would your recommendations be?
    1 Answer
    If the flues for the boiler and stove are not lined with flexible stainless and remain terracotta, a wire brush that is over-sized by 1" should be sufficient. The 9-Inch x 9-Inch Square Master Sweep Round Wire Brush Head with 3/8-Inch TLC Connector will be sufficient for these flues, while wire would scratch any relined chimney, where only poly brush heads should be used. Assuming you are using 6" corrugated stainless chimney liner for the wood insert, you would follow the same rule of thumb for over-sizing, but select a poly brush head like the SBI 7 Inch Medium-Duty Round Poly Chimney Brush.

    Should a chimney cleaning brush be the same size as the flue pipe or should it be oversized for cleaning friction?
    1 Answer
    It is best to match a brush to your pipe diameter. A 6" round flue takes a 6" brush. Over-sizing the brush results in the brush bristles folding over which reduces their cleaning ability.

    With recommended usage tips like applying the product weeks before you sweep and four 1 gallon cases provided, you'll be supplied with both the adequate amount of product and the tips to use your chimney cleaning tools with success. Lucky for hearth owners, there are plenty more available tips from informed home maintenance experts, hearth specialists, and consumer feedback, altogether, to ease the process along. For instance, reduce the dirty aftermath by placing a painter's drop cloth or a plastic tarp on top of the floor surrounding your fireplace. Bob Villa recommends this tip along with investing in some quality protective gear, like goggles or a dust mask. And hearth specialists share most fireplace owners will find these tips effective: use a chimney brush 1-2 inches greater than the size of your vent (most manufacturers recommend two inches), choose to clean your fireplace from the top instead of the bottom (although, the bottom may appear easier), and use a creosote modifying agent to reduce deeper levels of the creosote into a lighter, brushable ash.

    Stocking up on creosote removal product? Our Chimney Saver Cre-Away - 25-lb. Bucket can handle this need and more. Consider the chimney cleaning kit options, such as the AW Perkins masonry chimney brush kits that are accompanied with or without brushes. From vacuums for your firebox and vents, variable size chimney brushes, reliable cleaning products, and more, there's plenty here to satisfy your chimney cleaning and hearth needs. Included in those needs is the requirement for quality maintenance; Villa shares that using properly split and seasoned firewood is key in slowing the accumulation of creosote as years progress.
