Many homeowners neglect to clean their chimney which raises the question, why is it important? When your chimney isn’t clean, it isn’t safe to use your fireplace. Allow us to explain.
When you use your fireplace, you create soot which lines the walls of your chimney. The more often you use your chimney, the more soot that lines the walls. Since its highly flammable, the longer you go without a cleaning, the more likely you are to start a chimney fire.
Surprisingly, there’s no set time frame on when you should get your chimney swept. It’s all based on how often you use your fireplace. The more you use it, the more your chimney needs to be cleaned.
You should check after every couple of burns how much soot is left in your chimney. If you have 1/8″ or more, then you’re at risk of a fire and need to have your chimney cleaned immediately. If you don’t know how to measure chimney soot, you should hire a professional.
We also recommend having a chimney inspection at least once per year. Not only will they determine whether or not you need a chimney sweep, but they can find much larger problems. Between the weather outside and the smoke caused by using your fireplace, your chimney faces a lot of wear and tear. That’s why it needs to be checked out every year and made sure it’s working properly.
