How often should I have my chimney cleaned?
Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary. This is the national safety standard and is the correct way to approach the problem. It takes into account the fact that even if you don’t use your chimney much, animals may build nests in the flue or there may be other types of deterioration that could make the chimney unsafe to use. Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)
What does a chimney inspection entail?
In regard to the inspection, we want to make sure that nothing is missed. That’s why we have state-of-the-art camera scanning equipment that we run up your chimney. When the chimney inspection is complete, you’ll receive a full, visual report detailing findings, actions, and results of the inspection and/or cleaning.
For realtors and their clients, we also provide Level 2 chimney inspections, which are required for a home sale/purchase.
When should I get my chimney cleaned?
Spring is the best time of year to have your chimney cleaned. Once September comes, nearly every reputable chimney company has a waiting list that is weeks or even months long! But even if this weren’t so, spring would still be the best time of year to get your chimney inspected and cleaned. The first thing to understand is that chimneys only get dirty when they are used. Creosote is a flammable substance that builds up in fireplaces and needs regular cleaning to prevent the risk of having a chimney fire. Because you don’t use the fireplace all summer, there’s no possibility of creosote building up before the fall. If a chimney is not used, it will be exactly as clean six months later as the day you cleaned it.
