FAQ

FAQ

How often should I clean & inspect my chimney?

It is recommended that homeowners get an annual chimney inspection to be sure that all of your systems are in working order and operating as they should. If you use your fireplace on a regular basis you should opt to have a Chimney Cleaning done every year as well. Fireplace, stoves, furnaces, heating appliance systems and other venting systems connected to furnaces and stoves should also be cleaned on a regular basis to maintain safer operation. Don't risk the chance that an undiscovered defect could turn into an expensive repair or worse yet - a chimney fire.

Why Should I get my Chimney Cleaned?

Any time an accumulation of creosote and soot occurs it can be enough to fuel a chimney fire that may damage the chimney and even spread to the roof and home. The chimney sweeps job is to remove soot, blockages and built-up creosote from your chimney liner, firebox, smoke chamber and damper. Furnace flue systems should also be cleaned regularly, so don't neglect the cleaning of these venting systems.

What is creosote?

Creosote is a highly flammable substance that builds up inside your chimney or liner as a result of burning wood. Different types of wood create different amounts of creosote when burned. The rate of accumulation can be higher if you practice poor burning practices or have a burning appliance or stove that is not working well. It take only a small accumulation of creosote glazing to create the potential for a chimney fire. Creosote can also reduce the draw of the fireplace and reduce efficiency.

What do you do when cleaning a chimney?

When we are cleaning a chimney we also clean out the fireplace and smoke shelf. We do damper repairs, mortor repairs, and firebox rebuilds. We also install new grates, pilot light pipes, fire and ice, and we are certified gas log installers.

When Do I Need A Chimney Inspection?

To be sure that all of your systems are in working order and operating as they should, it is recommended that homeowners get an annual chimney inspection. Most homeowners opt to have a Chimney Cleaning done every year as well, especially if they use their fireplace on a regular basis. Other venting systems connected to furnaces and stoves should also be cleaned on a regular basis to maintain safer operation. Fireplace, stove, furnace and heating appliance systems are important to your home and families safety and not an area to neglect or cut corners on. Don't risk the chance that an undiscovered defect could turn into an expensive repair or worse yet - a chimney fire.
