What Are The Risks Of Neglecting Your Chimney?
As I stated before there are many hazards that come with wood burning fireplaces and 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 sweeping Kiawah Island services.
One of the biggest risks that comes with not getting a chimney sweeping blank 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.
Unfortunately as I stated before smoke can also infiltrate your home. Luckily you are always able to tell when it’s coming in however that does not make it any safer as it can make it difficult to breathe and is very unsafe to inhale. Both smoke and Ash can also do a ton of damage to your home resulting in costly repairs that could have been avoided. The best thing to do is always make sure to have your yearly chimney sweeping blank service scheduled, and make sure it gets done!
