Just wondering what everyone pays for a chimney cleaning? I got my stove last year so first year burning. Thought it was best to get a professional and had to book a month and a half in advance to get the cleaning. Took the guy 1/2 an hour 180 bucks, ouch. On the bright side it was all good soot no creosote so next year I will use the soot eater myself and get a pro every couple of years.
