When Is The Best Time To Have My Chimney Swept?

Ironically, right now is one of the best times to book a Chimney Sweeping Leland service. Warmer weather is right around the corner and you’ll be switching to open windows and air conditioning. This means you won’t have to put off booking a service because you’re actively using your chimney for your home’s main source of heat. You need to have your chimney properly swept once a year.

The beginning of fall is another perfect time! It gives you enough time to prepare your chimney for its use this winter. Now here in Leland we know the weather is extremely bipolar but September and October are usually pretty warm. This means you’ll still be using air conditioners or open windows depending on the weather. Even November would be a perfect time to book your Chimney Sweeping Leland service. The goal is to have a squeaky clean chimney before its use. This will save you from so many risks.

What Risks Are Associated With Improper Maintenance

Improper maintenance of your chimney can lead to so many terrifying scenarios. Your chimney could catch fire and start a complete home or apartment fire. This is because creosote inevitably builds up in your chimney. Creosote is a tar-like substance caused by the burning of wood. Creosote solidifies and sticks to the lining of your chimney as the smoke moves its way up the chimney and out through the vent. The smallest spark can cause creosote to ignite and burn out of control.

Debris like twigs, ash, creosote, soot and carbon monoxide build up overtime in your chimney. Debris buildup can cause clogs that would lead to an improper disposal of the smoke out of your chimney and instead send it into your home. Smoke is very dangerous to breathe in, especially if you’re asthmatic. This can trigger asthma attacks because you would essentially be having a bonfire in your home. The fire can become much larger than wanted which can get out of hand very fast.

The most dangerous risk of improper chimney sweeping is carbon monoxide. This is a poisonous, odorless, invisible gas that acts as a poison. It is heavier than air which causes it to sink to the floor. You can only detect how much carbon monoxide build up you have with a detector pointed toward the floor. Short exposure to carbon monoxide can present as flu-like symptoms. Long amounts of exposure can lead to lengthy hospital stays and potential fatality. This is why Chimney Sweeping Leland services provide a thorough clean to your chimney and fireplace. We want to eliminate these risks to your home and loved ones.

Why Not DIY?

Hiring a professional is a full win all around. Say you did rent the proper equipment needed to chimney sweep yourself. Do you have the correct protective equipment needed? What if you don’t have the proper knowledge of how to use it? Not having the proper knowledge can cause damage to the foundation of your chimney. This can be extremely costly to fix. It’s possible that you may not be able to properly remove all the clogs in your chimney.

Proper removal of debris and clogs is extremely important. You want your chimney to be able to expose all harmful substances. When there are clogs and debris in the chimney this is not the reality. Your chimney won’t be able to expose these harmful substances. Chimney Sweeping Leland services are guaranteed to leave you with a safe fireplace for years to come.
