The Importance of Chimney Cleaning & Repairs
Everyone knows that you can’t have a wood burning fireplace without a chimney. But, what is the purpose of a chimney? A chimney and flue is designed to carry the gases and fumes from a fire out of the residence. It allows you to have a fire indoors without all the smoke and everything in it seeping into your house and keeps the air inside nice and clean. Many people forget or may not even know that a chimney needs to be routinely cleaned in order to keep functioning and helping the smoke from fires flow to the outside successfully. A clean chimney will do its job properly; an unclean or badly functioning chimney can be a nuisance, health hazard, and risk to your home and safety. That is because dirty chimneys can lead to chimney fires.
Chimney fires can be very dangerous. They can cause very serious structural damage, burn whole houses to the ground, and have the potential to harm or even kill those who are in the home. Chimney fires can burn very rapidly and be very obvious and visible (smoke and flames coming up from the chimney), or be slow burning within the chimney but just as destructive to a home. If you have recently moved into a home with a fireplace and chimney, it’s a good idea to get a fireplace cleaning done before starting up any fires. You never know the condition that the previous owner or renter kept it in.
Chimneys will work properly when cleaned once a year. If you live in a home and have not had your chimney swept, getting it cleaned and making sure it operates correctly before winter will allow you to enjoy fires indoors safely and happily. Whether for heat or enjoyment, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your chimney is not a risk to your home or family. Signs you may need your chimney swept may include smells of burning wood when your fireplace or oven is not in use, fires that give off a lot of smoke into the room or do not burn well, or a black damper that appears, caked in creosote.
A clean chimney ensures that the air quality in a home remains intact and that the occupants are safe. It’s why chimney repair is necessary, if you suspect your chimney is not working, and an annual fireplace cleaning is such a good idea. Making sure that your fireplace, ovens, and stoves are in working condition and clean is an important job. Chicagoland Fireplace & Chimney Restoration can help you make sure that your chimney and fireplace are up to par and safe to enjoy.
