Importance Of Removing Creosote
One of the main reasons chimney sweepings are so important is for the removal of creosote. Creosote is bad for your chimney’s health and having it cleaned out on a regular basis will ensure your system runs safer and more efficiently year after year. Fortunately, we have the tools, products, and expertise necessary for removing all types of creosote! Whether it is crumbly and flaky, sticky and tar-like, or glazed and hard, we can get you taken care of.
One of the ways creosote causes problems is by starting chimney fires. It’s very flammable and, when a lot of it accumulates, your chimney is in danger every time you use your fireplace. Chimney fires damage the structure of your chimney by melting mortar and weakening the brickwork. This leaves holes and cracks throughout your system, which invites stray flames, smoke, and harmful toxins to escape into your home. It’s clear that creosote can put your home in a very vulnerable position!
Luckily, we have the know-how to ensure your fireplace is safer for use throughout the entire holiday season. Trust in our experts today – it’s a choice you won’t regret!
Removing All Blockages
Another factor that is essential for proper fireplace functioning is good airflow. Animals like to make homes for themselves in chimneys to stay protected from strong winds and bad weather. When they set up camp, they bring in all kinds of twigs, leaves, dirt, and other debris, all of which causes clogs and backs things up. When smoke and toxins can’t escape, they sit in your chimney, which leads to creosote accumulation and toxins pouring into your living room – definitely not ideal!
We will make sure nothing is blocking up your chimney, so that you can use it with ease this holiday season. Don’t let a smoky living room ruin your next get-together or family event. Schedule an appointment with us, so that we can address these issues before it’s too late! We can also install or repair your chimney cap, if necessary, so that debris won’t be piling into your chimney in the future.
