Even Santa Loves a Clean Chimney

How often should you clean your chimney



In just a few short weeks, Santa will be making his stops on roof tops everywhere. Make sure your chimney is clean for his descent! Maintaining a clean chimney is imperative not just for Santa’s sake, but for many other reasons as well. Let's take a look at the benefits of chimney sweeping and cleaning.



1. Safety. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says approximately 25,100 chimney fires are responsible for 30 deaths and $126.1 million in property damage every year, as reported by Reuters. That's why the Chimney Safety Institute of America and the National Fire Protection Association both recommend annual chimney inspections by a qualified professional and sweeping when necessary. Fires can start quite easily in dirty chimneys, leading to loud, cracking and popping noises, explosive fires, intense smells and dense smoke. Characterized by a low rumbling sound, chimney fires can get destructive fast, destroying the interior lining as well as the roof and beyond if allowed to get out of control.



2. Efficiency. Over time, creosote (a by-product of the smoke and chemicals that fire gives off) can coat the lining of your chimney, building up layer upon layer. By sweeping that creosote out regularly, you are allowing your chimney to function as efficiently as possible. You're also clearing out ashes and dirt that can't be removed without manual sweeping. In some cases, blockages may occur, which you can't see unless you climb up top with a flashlight, which is best left to the pros.



3. Prevention. If you don't remove the soot that builds up in the flue, that debris can prevent smoke from flowing out of the chimney unencumbered, causing it to come back into your home. Likewise with harmful gases that can accumulate, such as carbon monoxide.



4. Cleanliness. A dirty chimney is just that -- dirty. If you use your fireplace frequently, you know how important it is to have a clean chimney so you don't get your hands dirty. And did we mention Santa needs a clean chimney to come down on Christmas Eve? You wouldn't want to be responsible for dirtying his red suit, would you?
