Working together, use the ropes to pull the brush up and down, scrubbing the entire chimney flue. Clean the flue's entrance. At the very bottom of the chimney, often located in the basement, you should find a small door going into the area under the flue. The creosote and soot will have collected there. Use a small spade to shovel it into a bucket. Reattach the damper handle.
A plastic tarp or drop cloth for use inside your house. A ladder tall enough to reach your roof, if you plan to clean your chimney from the top down. A broom and dustpan. A dust mask and goggles.
Buy a pulley rope system to be used with your chimney brush. Two ropes are attached to the brush, one on the top and one on the bottom, and the brush is operated from both the roof and the fireplace. Assemble the pulley system with the brush. Have one person take it up a ladder to the roof. The person on the roof should hold one side of the rope, and drop the other side, with the brush in the middle, through the flue to the other person waiting below.
