Professional Cleaning For Your Chimneys
Why Hire a Chimney Sweep?
The main purpose of calling in a professional cleaning company for you chimney is to prevent fires in relation to fireplaces, wood stoves and pellet burning appliances. We don’t just clean the flue but also perform a visual inspection to make sure there are no unsafe conditions that can lead to home fires or unsafe air quality in the house.
How often should you do it?
Well that depends on who you ask, NFPA standard 211 says that you should have the fireplace, chimney and vents inspected once per year cleaning and maintenance if required. We agree with this inspection to make sure that no animals built any nests that would interfere with proper operation. There could also be structural damage that had occurred in the past year that could cause safety issues.
The “Chimney Safety Institute of America” says that if there is a ¼” buildup of soot to clean it, or sooner if there is any glaze present in the system. This is considered enough of a fuel source to cause a fire capable of spreading to the home.
