Why Does Your Chimney Need To Be Cleaned?

Your chimney is an important part of your heating system, but chimney maintenance is often overlooked. If it's been more than 5 years since your last cleaning, here are 4 reasons why you should schedule your chimney cleaning today:

  • Dangerous Fumes: Obstructions or cracks in your chimney can cause dangerous gases to escape into your home.
  • Chimney Fires: Creosol build up can obstruct airflow in the chimney, and is one of the leading causes of chimney fires.
  • Animal Nests: Nuisance animals including raccoons, squirrels, mice, bats and birds often nest in chimneys. The nests can block airflow causing your home to fill with smoke or possibly start a fire.
  • Prevent Damage: Even the most clean-burning, energy-efficient heating systems emit corrosive acids that can cause damage to the inside of your chimney.
