There are some things that you just need to keep up on in order to keep things running smoothly. Take car servicing and repair, for instance. If you want to keep your vehicle running efficiently, you’ll make sure to have it serviced every 3,000 miles or every three months. If there’s a knock or a shimmy, you should take your car in and have it checked out and have any necessary repairs made so the problem doesn’t get bigger. Well, your chimney requires that same kind of care and attention. Although it may seem like a pretty indestructible piece of architecture, things can go wrong. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), you should have your chimney inspected at least annually, and more often if you use it very frequently.
Clean Before Using
As the fall weather approaches, you’re probably starting to think of lighting your fireplace to take the chill out of the air. This is a great idea unless you haven’t had your yearly inspection done. When you use your fireplace, smoke is formed, and that smoke contains water vapor and harmful chemicals that are released during the combustion process. When that smoke hits the cooler area at the top, the interior of your chimney, it condenses and forms creosote, which is a highly flammable substance. All it takes is an eighth of an inch buildup to have enough to catch a spark and cause a destructive chimney fire. When you contact the specialists at Ceaser Chimney Service, LLC, we’ll come in and do a quality chimney inspection and sweeping so that you can be sure that the danger of a chimney fire is eliminated. Our highly qualified staff is CSIA certified and up-to-date on all the latest technology to ensure a job done right.
Another reason to call Ceaser Chimney Service, LLC is to make sure that no damage exists. Although we think of a chimney fire as a roaring, blazing, unmistakable occurrence, in truth a chimney fire often takes place without the homeowner even being aware of it. This is a dangerous situation because there may be damage to the interior of your chimney that is causing harmful gases to leak back into your home. We’ll check for any damage and give recommendations for necessary repairs.
