Creosote Accumulation & Chimney Fires

These events take a huge toll on your chimney and fireplace, and they make your system unsafe for use. Most homeowners assume a chimney fire is loud and obvious, but that is not always the case. In fact, most chimney fires aren’t big events at all! This is a scary fact, and it also means that many homes wind up using their system after it has been damaged by a chimney fire. This puts themselves and their family at great risk.

This is one reason we urge our customers to regularly invest in sweepings and inspections. When you get a sweeping from our team, we work hard to clear all of the creosote out of your chimney, so that you don’t have to worry about the risk of a chimney fire. Not only does this make your system safer to use, it also reduces the chance of nasty odors creeping into your home too!

Avoid Clogs & Buildup

Another big reason why sweepings are a necessity is to reduce your risk of experiencing clogs and buildup. When dirt, debris, animal nesting materials, or even the animals themselves create blockages, your airflow is affected. This then impacts the efficiency of your fireplace and cause a drop in efficiency of your fireplace. You won’t get the strong, long-lasting fires you are hoping for, and you’ll likely experience a lot of smoke back-up too.

Chimneys need to avoid clogs, as clogs increase the risk of carbon monoxide exposure. Since carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, it is extremely hard to detect, which makes it very dangerous. Most homeowners only realize the presences of this dangerous gas once people start becoming ill. It’s not worth the risk! Invest in a sweeping today, and be sure to install a carbon monoxide detectors throughout your home, as well. These are two easy steps that can make a big impact on your household’s overall safety.
