We also perform an inspection alongside your chimney sweeping. Chimney inspections should be performed more frequently than sweeps because they are meant to ensure your chimney remains safe to use. Cleanings do not need to be so often, especially for those who don’t use their chimney often.
We recommend chimney inspections are performed annually. By having a yearly inspection, you can ensure your chimney meets building codes, and your home’s value is maintained. So, if you need a chimney cleaning, contact our team for a chimney inspection and cleaning all at one price.
The Importance of a Chimney Sweep
Chimney inspections are essential to your home’s safety, but chimney sweeps are too. Chimney sweeps should be performed frequently, but it varies on the number of times you use your chimney. In Dallas, TX, you can get away with using your chimney a few times during the winter and cleaning every two years. This doesn’t mean you should neglect your annual inspection.
Creosote, a chemical let off by burning wood, will cake the flue walls, which needs to be removed during cleaning. If the creosote build-up is too great, it can obstruct the flue. Smoke will billow back into the home, and a fire can start in the flue. Fires within the chimney flue are a serious issue and are not uncommon.
With annual inspections, you can determine when is the right time for a proper chimney sweep. Fresh Air Duct Cleaning can assist you in determining when a chimney cleaning is right.
