Enjoying a nice warm fire during winter is important for a lot of families. But even more important is making sure that there are no harmful side effects coming from your chimney. It is important to know how a clean chimney can benefit your health.
One important aspect of the chimney is that the fumes from the smoke and fire escape through the top of the chimney. A slightly clogged chimney may result in some of the fumes entering into the house. People that have allergies are very sensitive to even very small amounts of smoke. Small children are often extremely sensitive to any fumes from the fireplace because they have sensitive lungs. Fumes from gas or fuel can be harmful when breathed in. In severe cases they can even cause death. You can almost think of cleaning your chimney the way you clean the grill before cooking on it. You don’t want to eat the black charcoal build up on the grill. This is similar to not wanting to breath in the fumes from your fireplace.
How Often Should My Chimney Be Cleaned?
Regular chimney cleaning and service will minimize the amount of creosote in the chimney and as a result, reduce the severity of a flue fire should it occur. Ensuring the safety of your home is our top priority, having even a controlled fire in your home can be dangerous if the tools, your fireplace and all of it's parts, are not maintained properly and kept in great condition.
