There are many hazards that come with neglecting to get a chimney sweeping Virginia Beach service done on 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, yearly, chimney sweeping services.
The second and third biggest risks that come with not getting a chimney sweeping Virginia Beach service done every year is carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation. 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 Virginia Beach 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 chimney is clogged it prevents an adequate amount of oxygen from reaching the burning wood. This means the wood could burn unevenly, or even in some scenarios the fire could go out, leaving you and your loved ones cold through the winter. In worst case scenarios, this can cause a chimney fire!
