For many homeowners, your chimney tends to be somewhat out of side and therefore, tends to often be out of mind. However, the professionals here at All Year Chimney Sweeps and Repairs want to remind all our valued clients of the importance of scheduling a chimney sweep and cleaning of your home’s chimney.
A chimney sweep will not only clean your chimney thoroughly but will also remove debris and soot that has accumulated in your chimney liner as well as the creosote buildup that exists. With the presence of both creosote and extensive debris and soot it is critical to have your chimney routinely cleaned in order to keep tf working at peak levels and provide for the health and safety of your family members. With that said, one of the most challenging concerns for homeowners is how often they should be having their chimneys cleaned.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that homeowners have their chimneys cleaned when there is a noticeable presence of approximately 1/8” of soot that has built up. With that said, we are fairly confident that our clients will ask how they would know how much of a soot build up they have and whether or not it is the equivalent of 1/8” of buildup.
Though it is rather difficult for any homeowner to know whether or not there is actual soot build up in their chimney, it is a rather simple and common task for the professionals here at All Year Chimney Sweeps and Repairs. Our highly skilled and experienced chimney sweep technicians will examine your chimney, identify any problems if there are any, and certainly determine whether or not it is time to have your chimney cleaned. Our technicians are able to measure any soot accumulations and see if it comes in at the 1/8” range. Our technicians will also perform a thorough inspection of your chimney liner to identify any cracks or damages that may exist. The additional inspection is performed at the same time since, if repairs are needed, they can be performed at the same time as your chimney liner cleaning.
We tell all our clients that a chimney should be cleaned at minimum once per year. The best time of year to have your chimney sweep and cleaning performed would be either the spring or the upcoming fall season. By performing your cleaning in the early fall season, your chimney will be cleaned, maintained, inspected and repaired if needed prior to the start of the heating season. We strongly advise all our clients not to neglect or disregard having their chimneys cleaned since doing so can minimize your chimneys performance as well as the health and safety of your family.
