Keeping your chimney clean and in good repair is essential to the health of your family. It is a vital component of your home that removes dangerous gases, such as carbon monoxide, from the air inside your home. Not to mention creosote, as you might have guessed is extremely flammable, and a fire that starts in the chimney may quickly reach the attic or other parts of your house.
Establish a Schedule for Inspections
Have your chimney inspected annually so that any necessary cleaning or repairs can be promptly taken care. Leave this job to the professionals so that everything that needs addressing is addressed and your safety is not put at risk.
Reasons for Regular Cleaning
The combustion process itself leaves behind an acidic material that weakens both masonry and metal chimneys, causing them to deteriorate. You may not recognize the signs, but a certified chimney sweep will.
Chimney sweeps know chimneys inside and out, and can see when something that has nothing to do with soot or creosote is endangering the integrity and efficiency of your chimney. A chimney sweep will inspect deep inside your chimney while using special cameras in order to see even the most minor damage so that it can be corrected before it morphs into something that threatens your health or safety.
