Benefits Of Chimney Sweeping
While your chimney may look like it is in great shape from the outside there could be a host of things going wrong on the inside. That is why having it cleaned and inspected each year is a must.
Number one, chimney sweeping ensures that the soot and creosote that gets built up on the inside is gone and doesn’t ignite into a fire. All it takes in one burning ember from a fire to float up into the chimney to ignite the highly combustible creosote. Chimney fires can be so small that go unnoticed and you may not know that one happened until your next inspection. By routinely taking care of your chimney after the burning season is over, then you have plenty of time to take care of any needed repairs before fall weather brings cooler temperatures.
Second, chimney sweep Leland services removes unwanted debris other than just soot and creosote that can block the path of smoke and fumes from escaping to the outside. Things such as birds and animals can make their way inside of your chimney in the off season. No one wants to deal with a dead animal and the smell of such a thing while burning wood. Let alone smoke backing up in the house. Smoke inhalation and smoke damage to your home furnishings can also happen when the chimney flue becomes constricted because of too much soot and creosote buildup.
Third, soot and creosote can create foul odors inside your chimney. If you have noticed this going on, then you have an excess amount of these substances inside your chimney and it is time to get chimney sweep Leland out for a service.
Fourth, soot and creosote is corrosive to the inside of your fireplace and chimney by causing deterioration to metal, brick, and mortar. If you want to keep your fireplace and chimney in good condition, then get it swept and inspected each year.
Fifth, hiring a pro to do this type of work for you ensures that your chimney is safe and in good working order. Don’t try to do this task on your own. Chimney sweeps are trained professionals who know what to look for in the case of damage and how to clean a chimney correctly. Chimney sweeps also have the right tools to use. Yes, you can purchase your own set of chimney sweep tools at a home improvement store, but do you really want to get dirty and possibly make matters worse. Professional chimney sweeps can have a chimney done in about one hour. If the chimney is especially dirty and the soot and creosote buildup is more than usual, then the job will require a lot of elbow grease and time. Do you have that time and strength to put into cleaning your own chimney?
