Chimney sweeping Southport recommends having your chimney swept out once a year for normal seasonal burning amounts, but if you are using your chimney more frequently then it may be needed more often. Those that live in areas where climates are colder and burning lasts longer due to colder temps lingering longer may need more chimney sweeping. This is probably not going to be the case for folks in the Southport area though since the climate is usually warmer throughout the year.

Keeping your chimney swept out as recommended is important though as soot and creosote deposits will undoubtedly accumulate over time and cause potential problems. These byproducts are caused by the incomplete burning of wood and are left behind inside the chimney walls / flue. As time goes on it builds up and causes the diameter of the flue to shrink making it harder for smoke and fumes to escape through the chimney. Creosote is also highly combustible and it only takes one small ember to ignite it. Smoke can back up into the property and cause smoke damage inside the home or structure which is bad for the inhabitants and causes damage to the furnishing. The other potential hazard is a chimney flue fire. Sometimes the property owner isn’t even aware that a fire is taking place as the flames are exiting through the top of the chimney. Perhaps a neighbor will see the flames and report it to the authorities. Unsuspecting homeowners have been the victims of a chimney fire and been lucky enough to have escaped unharmed. But either way a fire or smoke damage from such an incident is preventable. Make sure to have your chimney property inspected each year and swept by pros like ours at chimney sweeping Southport to be on the safe side.

Chimney sweeping Southport can have your chimney swept in about one hour. Using a wire bristle brush to scrub out the flue and make sure that those creosote and soot deposits are thoroughly removed is the only way to get this job done. All of the deposits will be scooped and vacuumed away. You will be left with a clean fireplace, chimney and chimney flue that is safe for another season of burning. Our pros will also inspect the brick for cracks and working mechanisms of the fireplace to make sure that everything is in order. Also it is a good idea to ensure that your chimney cap is still in place.

Did you know that when a chimney cap is not in place that critters can get inside of your chimney? Those darn little vermin can wreak havoc inside of your chimney flue making a nest and squirreling away nuts and seeds. Squirrels, birds, mice, chipmunks, and other small animals that can fit into your chimney can and will do it if the cap isn’t in place. All it takes is a strong storm to throw something hard enough like a limb or some heavy flying debris at your chimney cap and off it goes. If you have started to hear weird noises going on inside of your chimney then perhaps your cap is off. Rain can be coming inside it too. It is best to have our pros at chimney sweeping Southport come out for an inspection and chimney sweeping to make sure all is good.
