It’s that time of year again! If you’re like many, you have a list of goals and resolutions for the new year. Well, we’re here to encourage you to add a chimney sweeping to that list! A thorough chimney sweeping may be just what your system needs to work more efficiently and give you the warmth and comfort you’re hoping for in 2019.
Improving Chimney Health
One major reason regular sweepings are necessary is to ensure your fireplace and chimney stay in good health all year long. The more creosote and debris you have in your flue, the more damage and deterioration you are bound to see, and these materials can break down your system in a hurry. Keep in mind that damages that are not addressed in a timely manner will only get worse, thus initiating a vicious chain of events when it comes to your chimney’s health.
Creosote is also dangerous in that it is highly flammable and known for being the cause of countless chimney fires every single year. If you experience a chimney fire, your entire structure will need a lot of expensive repair work done before it can be put to use again! Using a system that has undergone a chimney fire can be extremely risky, as your structure is weakened it becomes more prone to house fires and gas leaks.
Worried about build up? Sweepings allow your chimney technicians to remove any twigs, leaves, animal nests, and more from your flue, ensuring your chimney can properly vent out any fumes and vapors. This increases efficiency, and it lowers the chance of carbon monoxide, a deadly and odorless gas, entering your home, as well.
