Keep Your Chimney & Fireplace Safer & More Efficient With Professional Chimney Cleaning Services
You’ve seen the mess that a fire makes in your fireplace, but have you given much thought to what it does to your chimney? Every time you build a roaring fire and kick up your feet, you may be taking it easy, but your chimney’s working hard to vent smoke, high heat, and corrosive byproducts and gases. It can get pretty dirty in there after a while — when was the last time you showed your chimney some love with a professional chimney cleaning?
Professional chimney cleanings remove soot, ash, creosote buildup (a flammable and damaging substance), and any other debris that may have gotten into the system. By making these cleanings a regular part of your home maintenance plan, you’re working to ensure that your system performs as safely and as efficiently as it should, that it’s clean and free of flue obstructions, and that it’s well maintained and ready to serve you for years and years.
How Do You Know When You Need To Have Your Chimney Cleaned?
A chimney cleaning may not be needed by every homeowner every year — after all, you may not use your fireplace as much as someone else or your fireplace may be highly efficient and produce little emissions. For this reason, there’s really no hard and fast rule for chimney cleaning frequency.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) suggest annual inspections to keep you abreast of any concerns and help you determine when a cleaning is needed and when you’re good to go for another season. During an inspection, we’ll check the flue for buildup and obstructions so you don’t have to guess or budget for something you don’t even need.
