Get Your Chimney Ready Now

Getting Your Chimney Ready for Fall & Winter

Arizona might be considered a ‘hot’ state due to rising temperatures in the spring and summer months, but the area can actually be quite cold during the fall and winter months. Temperatures often reach into the upper 30s and lower 40s during the nighttime hours, so heating is a must during the winter season. To stay warm, many homeowners use a fireplace. A fireplace is a decorative element in the home but can also function to provide energy efficient heating. While a fireplace can provide quality heat in the home, having the chimney cleaned is a must. Many homeowners neglect this service and end up having issues over time.

Why Clean the Chimney?

When using a fireplace, the smoke from the fire travels up the chimney and out into the open air. So why would the chimney need cleaning? There are a number of reasons why this service should be used by homeowners. To begin, cleaning will ensure that the chimney does not have a buildup of fireplace smoke. Secondly, cleaning helps to prevent a chimney fire from taking place. Chimney fires can be devastating and lead to serious damage in the home.

It is also important to have the chimney cleaned at least once a year to ensure that smoke from your fires is exiting the flue properly. Another big problem is rodents and other creatures. Chimneys are prime living areas for creatures such as bats, birds and even mice and rats. When you have dead animals or even living animals in the chimney, you can have problems in the home. Dead animals will smell after being stuck in the chimney for months and can lead to a horrible odor in the home. Live animals can enter the home and wreak havoc, so it’s best to have the chimney checked and cleaned to avoid such issues.

Chimney Cleaning

During a chimney cleaning or chimney sweep, the chimney system is visually inspected. Technicians will look for repair needs or any alterations that might need to be made. As the chimney is cleaned, care should be taken to keep the home neat and tidy. Shoe covers will be used to avoid tracking any dust into the home with a tarp laid down at the front of the fireplace to protect the flooring from chimney dust.

A fireplace can see a build-up in the chimney of creosote and soot. This is dangerous and the source of many chimney fires. Such components need to be removed in order to keep your home safe from fire. A chimney professional knows just what to do to clean your chimney the right way, avoiding any issue in the future such as smoke in the home or potential fires.
