Sweeping & Creosote Removal
Why Sweep your Chimney?
To Reduce Risk of Fire and Unsafe Fumes!
is a Fire Hazard!
During normal chimney operation, a layer of Creosote
builds up on the inside of the chimney, restricting air
flow. The Creosote is very flammable. Once the
Creosote catches fire, it can lead to the chimney and
the building catching fire.
Between 1999 and 2002, the National Fire Protection
Association reported an annual average of nearly 54,000
residential fires in the United States. These fires
resulted in 320 deaths, nearly 1,300 injuries, and over
$637 million in property damage. Chimney fires can be a
direct result of failing to perform routine maintenance,
such as chimney cleanings and inspections. Cleaning your
chimney is one way to reduce the likelihood of a chimney
fire and it can also help prevent the odors frequently
emitted by a dirty chimney.
How often should I have my Chimney
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association)
recommends yearly inspections and cleanings as needed.
If you are burning wood, it is best to have your chimney
cleaned annually for every two cords of wood burned.
(One Cord = 4'x4'x8'). If you have an oil flue,
inspections are also essential to insure that your
chimney is venting properly.
chimney hazard are animals that may
build nests in the flue.
Cracks, holes or obstructions in a
chimney flue can cause dangerous
carbon monoxide fumes, or soot, and
leak into your home.
When is the best time of
year to have my chimney cleaned?
It is best to have your chimney cleaned once you have
finished using it for the winter season, usually during
March, April or May. If chimney swifts use your chimney
for nesting, it is best to have your chimney cleaned in
early March, before they begin their migration.
