Fireplace & chimney CLEANING
Residential Chimney Sweep & Fireplace Cleaning
During the cooler months of the year, there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting near a fireplace. But, have you ever wondered how the fireplace you seat near works? When wood is burned in a fireplace, smoke is created and is drawn up the chimney and into the outdoors, if the chimney is working properly. However, some particles from this smoke, such as soot and creosote, tend to cling inside the chimney and the fireplace itself.
Why Is Fireplace & Chimney Cleaning Necessary?
It might not seem that important, but having your chimney and fireplace cleaned and inspected thoroughly on a regular basis helps you keep your fireplace working, as well as prevent fires, and safeguard air quality. The presence of soot and creosote in your chimneys pose fire hazards, and the chimney may not fully remove the smoke.
These flammable materials can also become health hazards as they make their way to your air indoors, contributing to polluting the air you breathe. Enough soot can affect your lungs as it continues to circulate around your home.
Such risks can be minimized by availing professional chimney sweeping & fireplace cleaning services.
Do Gas Fireplaces Require Chimney Cleaning, Too?
Gas fireplaces have become quite popular these days, due to the misconception that they don’t need to be cleaned. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case; gas fireplaces sometimes have debris buildup due to soot byproducts. Other factors such as falling nests or moisture problems could cause your chimney to break down.
Though it is indeed a gas fireplace, it’s still necessary to have your fireplace and chimney thoroughly inspected and cleaned. Having a dysfunctional ventilation system can expose your family to Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Don’t risk your family from getting poisoned – get your chimneys and fireplaces cleaned and prepared for another year with our professional fireplace cleaning services.
How Often Should You Have a Residential Chimney Cleaning?
Standard 211 of the National Fire Protection Association endorses that chimneys should be inspected annually due to the presence of many factors that can cause faster deterioration of the chimney and making it unsafe for use, even if you don’t use it on a daily basis.
An annual chimney cleaning is ideal if you use your fireplace frequently during the colder months of the year. If you own a gas fireplace, you should avail residential chimney cleaning services every 3 to 5 years unless an inspection tells you that cleaning is imperative.
Some clients who do NOT clean their chimneys regularly have told us that some chimney fires sound like an aircraft landing on the roof. This is because the lack of cleaning forces air up the chimney due to the fire’s demand for oxygen. A blocked or dirty chimney could cause smoke to drift towards the room instead, causing a headache’s worth of problems such as dirtier air, fire risks, or even carbon monoxide poisoning. If your fireplace worked well for the past months but suddenly draws poorly, you can ensure that a good cleaning done by seasoned professionals will bring it back, good as new.
