Frequently Asked Questions
Why Should I Get My Chimney Cleaned?
It is best to get your chimney serviced to get rid of soot, blockages and built-up creosote from within your chimney smoke chamber, damper, liner, and firebox. Your cleaning will make for safer usage of your fireplace during the cooler seasons. It only takes a small amount of creosote glazing for the potential of a chimney fire.
What is Creosote?
Creosote is a highly flammable substance that accrues inside your chimney or liner as a result of using your fireplace. The rate of accumulation can be accelerated if you practice bad burning practices, and/ or have a burning stove that is not working efficiently. Different types of wood may create different variants of creosote when lit. Pine causes a fast build-up of creosote and should be avoided as a regular source of wood. Creosote may also reduce the ventilation of the fireplace and affect efficiency.
Chimney Inspections, a once a year practice.
To be sure that your chimney and fireplace are in good order and working as they should, we would suggest that homeowners get a yearly chimney inspection with their yearly sweep, which is why we offer it for free. Most homeowners choose to have a Chimney Cleaning done every year as well, specifically if they use their fireplace more regularly. Other systems in conjunction to furnaces and stoves should also be maintained on a regular basis to ensure safe operation. Fireplace, stove, furnace, and all other heating appliances are critical to your home and families’ safety and should not be overlooked. Don’t risk the chance of a defect that could turn into a costly repair or even worse – a chimney fire.
Will I Be Reminded When I Need A Service?
When you use a regular chimney sweep company, they will put you on an annual inspection schedule. During these inspections, they will advise you if it is time to sweep, clean, or repair your fireplace or chimney.
If you only use your fireplace or stove on occasion, an inspection is still advised yearly to look at all systems, furnace flues, stove systems, and chimney. During these inspections, any defects or issues that are found that require repair will be advised, even if cleaning is not needed.
