Chimney Cleaning

Chimney Cleaning – All Star Chimney

There’s nothing more romantic, cozy, relaxing and welcoming than a roaring fire. While a fireplace is certainly a beloved feature in a home or business, if it is not properly taken care of, it can also be a dangerous one.

Here at All Star Chimney Solutions, your leading chimney repair, and chimney sweep company, we want to stress how important it is to properly maintain your chimney – and cleaning is one of the most important and efficient ways to ensure that your chimney remains safe.

Every time you light a fire in your fireplace, the by-products of the combustibles collect inside your chimney, including soot, ash, and creosote. Over time, these by-products build-up and eventually, they will make your fireplace and chimney a serious hazard.

The folks at All Star Chimney Solutions, your leading chimney service, suggest that you have your chimney cleaned at least twice a year. However, if you use your fireplace on a constant basis, you may need to have it cleaned more than that. While you can attempt to clean your chimney yourself, we highly suggest that you have a professional chimney sweep do it for you. A professional has the training and experience, as well as the tools and equipment that are necessary to properly clean your chimney.

When our experts are on the job, your cleaning will begin with a thorough inspection of your chimney. We will determine the best methods for cleaning your chimney based on its condition.  All Star Chimney only uses the highest quality equipment to remove the buildup of debris and combustible by-products in your chimney. The end result: A chimney that is free of dirt and debris and is safe to use.

Why Cleaning Your Chimney is Important

Though cleaning your chimney is vital for the safe operation of a fireplace, many people overlook its importance. Over the years, we have worked with many homeowners and business owners who have neglected to have their chimneys cleaned.

At All Star Chimney Solutions, we think that it is exceptionally important to educate our clients about fire-safe practices. We can’t stress enough how important a clean chimney is for the safe operation of your fireplace.

Why is cleaning your chimney so important? Here is a look at three reasons why you need to make cleaning your fireplace a priority:

  1. To prevent a chimney fire. If your chimney is not properly cleaned, your fireplace goes from being a safe place to enjoy a fire to an extremely dangerous place. If your chimney is not cleaned, the heat, smoke, and other combustible by-products cannot escape properly. Additionally, the buildup of creosote, which is blackish-brown in appearance, will eventually leave a glazing inside of your chimney. This glazing is extremely combustible. It only takes a small amount of creosote to start a massive fire that could destroy your entire home or business and put you and anyone else in the vicinity of the fireplace and chimney in danger.
  1. To keep your health protected. When your chimney is not properly cleaned, it can become a serious health hazard. The buildup of soot, ash, dirt, creosote and other debris impacts a chimney’s ability to adequately exhaust the fumes from a fire. These fumes contain elements that are extremely dangerous to your health. Carbon monoxide, for example, is an extremely deadly gas and it has the potential to kill.

    Carbon monoxide isn’t the only problem that can result from and impact your health if your chimney isn’t properly cleaned. The soot, ash and other dirt and debris can fill your home when the chimney isn’t clean because it doesn’t have a way to properly exhaust. This is particularly a problem for people who suffer from allergies or other respiratory problems.

  1. To prevent smoke damage. When a chimney is not clean, soot from any fires you burn in your fireplace will collect around the flue. When the flue is blocked, it cannot draw the smoke upwards and out of the chimney. As a result, the soot will collect around your hearth, leaving your hearth, your walls, your furniture and anything else in the vicinity of the fireplace susceptible to smoke damage. Smoke damage is not only unsightly, but it can be costly to clean. Additionally, smoke damage can cause irreversible damage.

If you own a fireplace, it is vital that you operate it responsibly. Having your chimney cleaned on a regular basis is one of the most important things that you can do for your safety and your health.
