Can my chimney catch fire? Chimneys are susceptible to fires, unfortunately, a widely encountered issue. Each year, more than 25,000 chimney fires transpire, resulting in substantial damage to homes that amounts to hundreds of thousands of dollars. These incidents not only jeopardize the chimney system but also pose a threat to the entire house. They underscore the crucial significance of treating chimney maintenance with utmost seriousness. These fires typically originate from the accumulation of creosote or the ignition of debris within the flue. Factors such as restricted airflow, improperly seasoned firewood, and cooler temperatures within the system contribute to the formation of creosote buildup.

When is the best time to have my chimney cleaned? Spring is the best time of year to have your chimney services done. Once autum arrives, most chimney business are very backed up. Also, you should have your chimney serviced directly after the winter months of heavy usage so dangerous creosote does not sit in your chimney for an extended period of time.

Do I need a chimney cap? A chimney cap protects your chimney from any debris or wildlife entering your chimney. It protects your chimney from nesting or deposits of leaves and other flammable material.

Does my chimney need a liner? NFPA enforces that chimneys must have a liner that is able to contain the materials of combustion. Remember that you may have a liner but if it is not in good shape it is basically useless. Have your chimney inspected today.

How often should a chimney be cleaned? Your chimney should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year according to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and other veteran professionals. It should also always be swept when any amount of glazed creosote is present. Summer is a great time to check your chimney.
