SootEater Cleaning System

The SootEater Rotary Chimney Cleaning System safely cleans your chimney with ease from the ground up! Increase the performance of your wood stove or fireplace while decreasing your risk of fire. The SootEater chimney whip and flexible button-link quick connect extension rods easily remove dangerous soot and creosote build-up in your chimney when powered by your cordless drill (not included). Easy to use, the powerful rotating forward and reverse action of the chimney whip and flexible rods scours your chimney wall, effectively cleaning chimneys up to 18’ in length. Our unique chimney whip design cleans multiple flue shapes and sizes. Rods are constructed of 16mm polypropylene and are flexible enough to make over 90o bends. The SootEater works better than a wire brush, won’t scratch metal flues, and fits through tight areas; optional accessories include replacement whip line and extension rods. Help prevent flue fires and save money while doing so. It’s easy when cleaning with Gardus power!
