Performing an annual chimney cleaning is necessary to keep your home safe and your hearth functioning properly. Over $200 million in property damage is caused by unmaintained chimneys every year, not to mention injuries and fatalities. Smoke, water vapor, tar fog, gases, un-burned wood particles, hydrocarbons, and various minerals pass through flues when wood burning fireplaces & wood stoves burn. Creosote is highly combustible and can cause a fire to spread, which can cause serious damage to your house. The inside can also get corroded by corrosive acid produced by boilers, hot water heaters, and furnaces. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends an annual chimney sweep and inspection for this reason.
