Haven’t Scheduled a Chimney Cleaning Yet? It’s Not Too Late!

November 15, 2021

Are you about to start using your fireplace for the winter? To keep your family safe and home intact, you should schedule chimney cleaning at once per year. A great time to do so is in the fall before you begin lighting your fireplace regularly. Read on to learn why you should schedule a chimney cleaning for your home in Richmond, VA.

Prevent Chimney Fires

Creosote is a highly flammable substance left behind after wood burns in your fireplace. Did you know it only takes a 1/8″ buildup of soot to cause a chimney fire? While a chimney fire will start in the chimney, it might not stay there. It can quickly spread to the rest of your home, damaging your belongings and even endangering the lives of your loved ones.

Increase Heating Efficiency

A buildup of soot in your chimney isn’t only a safety concern. It also impacts the efficiency of both your fireplace and home heater. If your chimney clogs with soot, creosote or another blockage, you won’t heat your home efficiently and effectively. Scheduling a chimney cleaning will ensure you enjoy the warmth you expect and desire.

Avoid Unpleasant Odors

Too much creosote buildup in your chimney can cause an unpleasant odor. Without removing the creosote deposits that have collected over the winter months, a foul smell will linger during the humid summer months. That’s why scheduling a chimney cleaning in the fall before you use your fireplace and in the spring after you stop is a great idea.

Your chimney is a vital part of your home that helps keep your family and property safe. Give it the care and attention it deserves by scheduling a chimney cleaning right away.
