A Sweep of Your Chimney is a Boost in Your Home's Safety

When was the last time you had your chimney cleaned?

If you had to stop and think about it, chances are, it's probably been a while. We recommend having your chimney swept at least once a year, even if you don't use your fireplace that much. A combination of creosote build-up and critters who can claim your chimney as their home can ultimately pose fire hazards that can impede your family's safety.

Chimney Cleaning FAQs

Q: How often should I have my chimney cleaned?

A: Annually. Even if you don't use your chimney that often, the buildup of creosote and soot can create fire and health hazards. A seldom-used chimney is actually an ideal place for critters to create nests, which can lead to a number of problems, too.

Q: What is creosote?

A: Creosote is a tar-like substance that builds up when you burn wood in your fireplace. It's a highly-flammable substance that lines the inside of the chimney and must be properly removed to reduce fire hazards. Certain woods, such as pine, can cause a more rapid buildup of creosote.

Q: What are the benefits of having my chimney cleaned?

A: A number of benefits come from chimney cleanings, including:

  • Reduction of fire hazards & increased home safety.
  • Identification & removal of animals.
  • Identification of deterioration & proactive planning for repairs.
