This is very important when it comes to the safety of you and your family. So give us a call today at 843-790-8447 or visit our wonderful website at for all your chimney sweeping needs! 

One of the biggest risks that comes with not getting a chimney sweeping Kiawah Island 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 Kiawah Island service scheduled,  and make sure it gets done!

When your chimney is kept properly clean it also allows for a more thorough and efficient burn of the wood in your fireplace. When this is the case it will improve the overall warmth of your home and create a more comfortable atmosphere for you and your loved ones to enjoy. When your journey is clogged it prevents  an adequate amount of oxygen from reaching the burning wood. This means the wood could burn unevenly,  or even in the worst-case scenarios  the fire could go out.

Having your chimney  Clean and Free of debris also makes it easier for professionals to perform your  routine chimney inspections.  When there is an over abundance of creosote and sit deposits present it’s a lot more difficult to reach areas such as the damper and smoke shelf and may hinder the diagnosis of any issue going on within your chimney system. This could become a hazard and its own as if you were unaware of any issues going on in your chimney system and use it it could cause catastrophe. In some cases I could cause smoke and carbon monoxide to infiltrate your home, in other cases it could cause your chimneys to collapse.

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.
