Whether you haven’t used your chimney in a long time or have purchased a home and don’t know the chimney’s maintenance history, it’s best to request a chimney cleaning before you light the logs for a cozy evening. Build-up inside the structure can create a fire hazard that has resulted in tragedy for many homes across the nation.
A professional chimney cleaning will remove the soot and creosote residue from the inside of the flue. While most people understand that soot is a byproduct of burning wood, many don’t realize that creosote is a thick oily substance that remains flammable. The accumulation of both materials creates conditions ideal for chimney fires. Heat and sparks travel up the chimney, and if the conditions are right, combustion can occur inside the flue. The reality is that the cheerful comfort of a roaring fire could destroy your home.
Regular chimney cleaning and inspections are essential to protect your house and family. Fire is a serious threat to any home, and it’s always worth taking the time to reduce the risk. You probably love having a fireplace, and when you take care of it, it will take care of you.
