Have you lit too many fires in your fireplace this winter, resulting in a dirty, dark appearance? If you want your chimney to look like new and ready for the next big fire, a great Chimney Sweeping Raleigh service is just what you need. It is recommended to sweep the chimney at least once a year to remove all of the creosote and soot that build up inside the flue and chimney walls. There will undoubtedly be a lot of soot and creosote to remove if you burn a lot of wood and other fossil fuels. Creosote and soot are residues that, when left to accumulate within the chimney flue, are highly combustible. When an ember rises from the fire below, it is easy for them to catch fire. Typically, the residue is dark and sticky, but it can also be liquid and flaky. Creosote is made from coal tar and is used to preserve wood.

How much does it cost to have your chimney swept? First and foremost, it is the first step in preventing a fire from starting within the walls and chimney flue. Keep in mind that creosote is a very flammable material. Second, the soot and creosote are both unpleasant to look at and leave behind dark, sticky stains. They can also begin to smell bad, like a fire that burns for a long time after it has been extinguished. The residue’s fumes will emit an odor. Coal tar is used to make creosote, as previously stated. It stands to reason that it would resemble coal tar in appearance and aroma. Your fireplace and chimney can be cleaned by a skilled Chimney Sweeping Raleigh to improve their appearance and scent. In addition, it will function much more effectively. The buildup of creosote and soot can become so extensive that fumes cannot properly exit the chimney’s top. This may result in smoke coming back into the home as fumes descend. Clearly, this would pose a health risk to the residents of the house.

Sweeping chimneys is a dirty job that can be quite intimidating for the typical homeowner. The majority of homeowners lack the knowledge and skills necessary to clean their own chimneys, as well as the necessary tools. Because we are certified members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, Chimney Sweeping Raleigh is the best option. We are trained to clean the chimney and look for cracks in the damper and chimney shelf as well as broken bricks and mortar there. During our cleaning and inspection of the fireplace and chimney, we will make sure to point out any issues that require your attention. If there is a problem, it would be best not to continue using the fireplace until it has been fixed. To clean the chimney flue, our skilled employee would use a flexible wand with extension pieces and a hard-bristled brush that is pushed up into it. Using a broom or dust pan and a shop vac, the deposits can be easily removed from the bottom of the fireplace. Drop cloths would cover the entire area around the fireplace to protect it from the dust and tools. The worker would utilize either a headlamp or electric lamp to examine the walls and depression within the chimney and stack pipe to ensure that there are no breaks or harmed blocks. Additionally, the damper must be examined to ensure that it functions properly. Birds and bats may occasionally descend to build nests if the fireplace has not been used in a while and is uncapped. This can become unpleasant and creepy. 

The last thing that you want is for people to describe your home as unpleasant and creepy. Those are literally the worst words they could use to describe your home. Don’t you want them to look at your home, and its chimney, and think positively?  Your fireplace and chimney should make people feel warm and comforted. They shouldn’t look at it and just see Dark Souls that emanates a cold aura. You want to make sure that your guests are going to want to return to your home, not run away.
