Chimney Sweep Service
Schedule your chimney sweep during the month of September. Don’t leave it until it’s too late. Or when the weather gets bad. Then all the companies are fully booked. Or even worse charging emergency fees. Chimney care is an important part of not only fireplace maintenance but also home safety. It’s also a good time to think about properly seasoned firewood. Be sure your wood is covered and properly seasoned for optimum burning efficiency. Properly operating a burning fireplace is important to how much heat the stove provides and also how quickly the chimney can create creosote. Creosote is the thick tar-like black stuff that builds up inside the chimney pipe or outside on the stove cap blocking. This blocks airflow and could potentially become a fire hazard if the problem is not solved and the unit properly cleaned. If you notice creosote forming or black stains outside on the chimney cap or roof call a chimney sweep or your local fireplace specialist to schedule an appointment soon.
