When people think about house cleaning and home maintenance, chimney cleaning rarely comes to mind. But regularly neglecting your chimney could really cost you.

A clean chimney ensures a fully efficient fireplace, which can save homeowners thousands over time. Frequent chimney cleaning also lowers the amount of smoke that can enter a house while the fireplace is lit.

It’s great to save money, and no one wants smoke in their home, but the greatest benefit of regular chimney cleaning is keeping you and your family safe by reducing the risk of a fire.

The soot that accumulates inside of a fireplace contains a harmful chemical called creosote. Creosote is highly flammable, and a buildup of it can block the flow of carbon monoxide as it exits a home. Carbon monoxide is a quiet and symptomless killer that always strikes without warning. According to the CDC, between 1999 and 2010, a total of 5,149 deaths from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning occurred in the United States, an average of 430 deaths per year. See why chimney cleaning is so important?
