The tricky part about chimney sweeping is that there’s no set time frame to have your chimney cleaned. Since it’s dependent on how often you use your chimney, you need to keep an eye on the soot.
When you have 1/8″ of soot on your chimney walls, you’re in need of a chimney sweep. How long it takes for your to get that much soot in your chimney changes depending on your fireplace usage. You’ll need to measure the amount of soot in your chimney to determine whether it needs to be swept or not.
We do recommend you have a chimney inspection once per year. They’ll tell you if your chimney need to be swept and they can find other underlying problems. With the amount of wear and tear your chimney faces from the weather and smoke, you never know what could happen.
