Fireplace & chimney Service
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 sit 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. Know when it’s time for you annual chimney cleaning in Dallas.
Why Is Fireplace & Chimney Cleaning Necessary?
It might not seem that important, but having your chimney and fireplace cleaned and inspected regularly helps you keep your fireplace working, prevent fires, and safeguard air quality. Soot and creosote in your chimneys pose fire hazards, and the chimney may not entirely remove the smoke. At On Time Home Experts, we specialize in chimney cleaning in Dallas, TX. Professionally trained technicians do our service with the most advanced equipment.
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 circulates around your home.
Such risks can be minimized by availing of professional chimney sweeping & fireplace cleaning services.
Do Gas Fireplaces Require Chimney Cleaning, Too?
Gas fireplaces have become quite popular 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 thoroughly inspect and clean your fireplace and chimney. 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 Professional Chimney Cleaning in Dallas?
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 make it unsafe for use, even if you don’t use it on a daily basis.
An annual chimney cleaning in Dallas, TX, is ideal if you use your fireplace frequently during the year’s colder months. If you own a gas fireplace, you should avail yourself of 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 of problems such as more polluted 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 as good as new.
