Is It Time To Have Your Chimney Or Furnace Flue Cleaned?
It’s easy to forget about your chimney and furnace flue until you’re ready to light a fire in your fireplace or crank up the heat, but did you know that, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Code 211, “all chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year?” The reason being that, even if you had your chimney or furnace flue inspected last year, all the burning since then, paired with the freezing, thawing, settling, and water damage that can occur as a result of the rain, snow, and weather changes in the last year can rapidly turn a safe chimney flue into an unsafe one.
But if you live in the greater Manchester area, you can count on New Hampshire’s premier full-service chimney professionals to make annual chimney cleanings and maintenance simple and mess-free for you and your family.
What Is Included In A Chimney Or Furnace Flue Cleaning?
At Ceaser Chimney Service, we take every chimney cleaning very seriously, as if we were servicing our own home. Our expertly trained and Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified technicians start by inspecting your chimney and looking for creosote buildup and soot inside of your flue. Each cleaning includes a full inspection of the chimney or furnace flue, including an assessment of the top of the chimney (checking for cracks or damage to the brick, mortar, or cement crown), the flashing (checking for leaks or gaps), and the attached appliance (checking for damage or improper connection). We’ll take pictures and measurements of everything, top to bottom, and include them in the inspection report, which will be emailed to you along with your invoice. In this report, you’ll also find a list of any issues we find, as well as estimates for each recommended fix for your consideration.
