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.

An Air Duct Cleaning Nightmare

You have to be very cautious as to you hiring to clean your air ducts. These days, especially around the Phoenix AZ area a lot of companies claim to provide air duct cleaning but a bunch of them don't carry the proper insurances or licenses. That can become a risky propostiion for a homeowner or business owner in the event the air duct cleaner causes some kind of damage to the duct system.


Since it's October and all the ghosts and ghouls are getting ready to walk amongst the living I thought we'd talk about why it's important to hire a true air duct cleaning professional. We go back a few years ago when a homeowner right here in Phoenix hired a shady duct cleaner and this was the beginning of their nightmare.


It was a nice October day in Arizona, the sun was shining, the temps had dropped into the mid 80's, not a cloud in the sky. It was what most people would consider the perfect day. Being that summer was now over and all the monsoons were gone til next July, Jan, who lived in North Phoenix, thought it would be the perfect time to have her air ducts cleaned. Jan had slight allergies and when she was changing her air filters back in September, she had noticed how much dust, dirt and debris had gathered within some of her air ducts. If this much debris was right here where she was exchanding old, nasty filters for new ones, she could imagine what the rest of her duct system was like. it wasn't a week later when she came across a coupon for duct cleaning.

Avoid Chimney Sweep and Repair Scams


When it comes to your home you have to be very careful about who you hire for repair work when things go south. Whether it's your AC or your chimney, the contractors you bring in have to come with a solid reputation. We recently heard of the of one of the oldest tricks in the book popping up again. Local police here in Phoenix have reported that a few individuals in a van posing as chimney sweeps approached older residents in person or by phone, claiming the local fire department had deemed their chimney in need of cleaning.


Out of all the years working in this industry we have never heard of fire epartments contracting with local private companies to order chimney cleanings. What’s more, fire departments do not perform random chimney inspections on homes. If for some rare reason your fire department does notice a problem with your chimney, they will contact you directly and not through a third party.

Eliminate Allergens from Your Home's Air

If you are an allergy sufferer than you know that this year’s allergy season has been a brutal one. Millions of Arizonans have been plagued with the familiar sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, and a runny nose this spring. As you know allergies can knock you down by causing asthma, sinus infections, upper respiratory infections, and bronchial irritations.  What could have caused this year’s increase in allergy sufferers you may wonder? Our unusually mild winter coupled with our mild spring temperatures allowed for the pollen counts from grass and tree to sky rocket. Without many freezing nights this winter or high temperature days this spring pollen has had the chance to wreak havoc on your sinuses.


One of the worst parts of allergy season is contracting the dreaded sinus infection. Sinus infections occur when your nasal passages are blocked allowing for infection to occur. Although the peak of allergy system has come to pass your home may still be harboring pollutants in your air ducts. What causes your sinuses to flare up are microscopic pollen particles that get blown through the air by the wind. These microscopic particles infiltrate your household through open doors or windows and accumulates in your homes air ducts. If your air ducts have not been cleaned, all of the pollutants, allergens, and debris that are sitting inside of them get blown and circulated throughout your home. This can cause your allergies to go haywire.


Golden’s Good Air goes above and beyond cleaning your air ducts. Additional to cleaning your household's air ducts, they spray an anti bacterial spray throughout the duct system to kill off any bacteria that may be harmful to you and your family’s health.  Golden’s Good Air can help eliminate the pollutants that have invaded your home, giving you a safe haven from allergens.

When to Clean Your Chimney Flue

There isn’t a simple rule of thumb on how often to clean your chimney, such as cleaning after 50 uses or one year. The problem is, creosote can form when wood is burned incompletely. A smoky fire without enough oxygen emits lots of unburned tar vapors that can condense inside the flue and stick to it, possibly leading to a chimney fire. You can reduce creosote buildup in your fireplace by providing adequate combustion air, which will encourage a hot, clean-burning fire.


To check for creosote yourself, first make sure there’s no downdraft from the chimney. If you feel an airflow, open a door or window on the same floor as the fireplace until the downdraft stops or reverses and air flows up. Then, while wearing goggles and a basic disposable dust mask, take a strong flashlight and your fireplace poker and scratch the black surface above the damper. If the groove you scratch in the creosote is paper thin, no cleaning is needed. If it’s 1/8 in. thick, schedule a cleaning with Golden's Good Air. If you have 1/4 in. of creosote, do not use the fireplace again until it is cleaned by a professional as a chimney fire could occur at any time and that could be extremely dangerous.


To check for creosote, shine the light near the top of the firebox, in the smoke chamber and around the damper. And check the flue, too, especially on exterior chimneys, where creosote builds faster than on interior chimneys because of lower outside temperatures.

Why a Certified Chimney Sweep is Better

Why a Certified Chimney Sweep is Better

A fireplace can provide your home with many hours of warmth, and you may have endless fond memories of relaxing in front of it on cold days and nights. However, basic upkeep is essential if you want to keep your abode and its inhabitants safe. As reported at ABC15 Arizona, if you don’t have your chimney cleaned on a regular basis, it could catch fire due to “soot buildup, debris, and even animal nests”. According to News Guardian, your household could also be at risk of carbon monoxide exposure if your chimney is not maintained professionally.

When you hire a professional to clean your chimney, be sure to utilize one who has been properly certified. If your chimney sweep service does not employ certified professionals, you might pay for a job that is not done right the first time. This could ultimately cost you more money if you must have a poorly executed job corrected by a certified chimney sweep. Even worse, a chimney fire could cost you and your loved ones much more than money.

Benefits of Residential and Commercial Chimney Sweeping

Many homeowners with installed fireplaces look forward to autumn and winter weather, so as to gather around the flickering flames, safely inside and away from any unpleasant weather. Few family scenes are more inviting than the scenario where all are relaxing in the living room on a cold winter's day, with the warm glow of the fireplace on everyone's face.


Potential chimney dangers


This idyllic scene is one that could easily be spoiled however, if proper care and maintenance is not observed for the fireplace and the chimney, which vents gases and burned materials to the outdoors. When firewood is burned in any fireplace, a substance called creosote builds up on the inner walls of the chimney as a by-product. Creosote is a dark, tarry material which can become highly flammable on chimney walls, and awaits only a spark to ignite it, and trigger a chimney fire.

Additional Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning

You may not think much about your dryer vent but you should: poor dryer venting and maintenance leads to more than $100 million each year in damages, according to Bob Vila. In addition to cleaning out the lint trap on your dryer after every load, you should get your dryer vent completely cleaned out at least twice a year to keep your home safe. Your best bet is to hire a professional for this, as they have the proper tools, equipment and know-how to get the job done safely and thoroughly. Let's explore the many benefits of dryer vent cleaning.




By far, the best reason to regularly clean your clothes dryer vent is to prevent fires. This happens more than you may think. The U.S. Fire Administration says there are an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings, causing five deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss every year. Clothes dryer fires peak in the fall and winter months, with failure to clean the vents being the leading factor contributing to these fires. Dust, fiber, and lint were the items most likely to cause clothes dryer fires.
