At chimney sweeping Glen Allen we are fully insured and bonded. We provide one hundred percent customer satisfaction and we are so sure that you will love our service that you will ask us to come back annually. It is recommended after all that you have your chimney swept once a year for safety. Millions of chimneys are in use each year. They provide us with a way to produce heat and warm our homes. They burn fossil fuels like wood in them. So if you have trees that have been taken down around your home or some that have fallen down in the yard then you are able to burn that wood for free in your fireplace. You will have to cut it into smaller pieces of course that will fit into the fireplace and allow it to dry out, but it will be a good source of fuel for burning. A chimney fire can get really hot! In fact, it can get as hot as 2000 degrees fahrenheit! Without proper cleaning of the chimney to remove debris it can be the cause of a deadly fire.
If you have not called for a proper chimney sweeping lately, remember that the fireplace is not only for aesthetics. There were an estimated 25,000 chimney fires last year that have accumulated over 120 million dollars in damages. That is a lot of unnecessary damage caused by a lack of fire prevention. It only takes about 45 to 60 minutes to complete a thorough chimney sweeping of a fireplace. Think about the time it takes to do this type of job versus the huge headache a home fire would be over the big scheme of things. This one small act of calling chimney sweeping Glen Allen would be a tremendous savings and a lifesaver to say the least. Think about the well-being of your family pets if nothing else moves you!
What are the elements involved in a dirty and dangerous chimney? This is a great question and one that is asked often. As with any fossil burning machine, a certain amount of creosote and soot are left behind. These substances are residues that stick to chimney flue and masonry inside the chimney after each fire burns. When the creosote gets too thick, the heat and embers from the burning fire can be all it takes to ignite a fire on the inside of the chimney. A regularly scheduled visit by your neighborhood experts at chimney sweeping Glen Allen would be very helpful in preventing a home fire and keeping you and your loved ones safe while using your fireplace.
Creosote is a black, tar-like substance that forms inside the chimney when smoke does not escape as it should. There can be many reasons for why this happens. Creosote can be flaky, crusty, sticky, drippy, or even hard. No matter the state of the substance it is highly flammable and combustible which makes it unsafe in any home. Do not let the creosote buildup be the cause of fire damage in your home when it is perfectly preventable. Let one of our professionals clean out the soot and grime from your chimney before it becomes a hot problem at your home.
