Having a chimney sweep service at least once a year is extremely important!

What Are The Risks Of Not Getting A Chimney Sweep Service?
One of the biggest risks that comes with not getting a chimney sweep service done every year is carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is odorless and invisible and can be quite difficult to determine if its levels are too high. Things like creosote, or soot, Twigs dirt and other debris build up in the chimney and hinder its ability to properly release the toxins and smoke from the fire. This means that these toxins will build up and then be released back into your home.
Smoke is quite easy to see and recognize the dangers of it almost immediately, however carbon monoxide is almost impossible to detect unless you have a detector correctly placed in your home. Your carbon monoxide detector should be placed towards the floor rather than the ceiling like a smoke detector wood. This is because carbon monoxide sinks rather than Rises, because it is heavier than air, meaning by the time it reaches the ceiling or where the detector would be able to detect it, it would have already been deadly to you.
Funnily enough the biggest Hazard is the risk of a fire itself. creosote builds up the more your chimney is used and it is highly flammable so it should be cleaned as often as possible. Over time the fires that you burn will slowly cause damage to your chimneys lining and even a small amount of creosote can be enough to start a fire. No matter what kind of logs that you were burning in your fireplace you should always prioritize regular chimney sweep services.
