You’re probably wondering why it’s so important to have your chimney swept – many homeowners seem to forget about it. It’s because it’s much safer for your home to have it clean and swept than to ignore it.
Let us explain. When you use your fireplace, soot starts getting caked to the walls. The more often you use your fireplace, the more soot you’ll have in your chimney. Since soot is highly flammable, it can cause chimney fires and put your home at risk. The only way to prevent this is with a chimney sweep.
Early Times will make sure you’re not at risk of a chimney fire. Our chimney sweeps are professional trained with years of experience. You know your chimney is in good hands with Early Times.
Not only do we perform an expert chimney cleaning, but we’ll also do a chimney inspection. This is to make sure that there aren’t any underlying problems with your chimney.
There’s no definitive time frame to have your chimney cleaned. It’s highly dependent on how often you use your fireplace. A safe bet is to have your chimney swept once per year because that also gives us a chimney to perform an inspection.
If you frequently use your fireplace, there’s going to be more soot in your chimney. A cleaning once per year may not be enough to prevent chimney fires.
How do you know if you use your chimney too much for a cleaning once per year? You’ll have to check how much soot is in your chimney. The key number is 1/8″ – if you have 1/8″ of soot, you’re at risk for a fire. If you don’t feel comfortable or don’t know how to check the soot level in your chimney, have an inspection done.
