Beware Smoke Damage & Dangerous Gases
Fire damage is one reason to keep your chimney clean. Smoke damage is another. As creosote cakes the inside walls of your chimney, it makes it harder for smoke and other gases to escape through the top of the chimney. This can even lead to situations where smoke, soot, and gases are vented into-instead of outside-of your house.
Smoke brings with it an unpleasant odor that is difficult to remove, while soot leaves nasty residue behind. The residue sinks deep into the fabric of your furniture, carpeting, and even the drywall. Improper ventilation also leads to gases escaping inside the house. This could result in your family suffering from the ill effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Prevent problems with an annual chimney cleaning and inspection. A good time for service is in the fall before you start using the fireplace on a regular basis. This allows our sweeps to clean and inspect your chimney, as well as to remove any debris that may accumulate. With our services, you and your family can sit back and bask in the glow of the flames without worrying about fire hazards.
