The Importance of Chimney Cleaning and Safety Inspections

Story by:Vince DeCrisci  

Having your chimney  cleaned  and  inspected  on a regular basis provides numerous benefits, including ensuring your fireplace and chimney operate efficiently and safely.

In fact, according to the  Chimney Safety Institute of America , fireplaces and chimneys should be   inspected  annually for “soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearance.” Cleaning, the organization says, should be performed as necessary.

Annual cleanings and inspections will:

  • Clear any debris from your chimney that could block toxic smoke from venting away from your home. Dead leaves and branches are popular culprits, but animals also can use your chimney as a home, bringing in nesting materials and more. Adequate cleanings and inspections will keep your chimney clear.
  • Remove creosote, a dangerous and toxic by-product of burning fires. Creosote adheres to the interior walls of your chimney during fires, and, in intense heat, can catch on fire and spread to the rest of your home.
  • Make sure your chimney is in good working order and free from cracks or excessive wear. If considerably damaged, water from rain storms can seep into your home, damaging walls and contributing to the formation of mold. Additionally, cracks in your chimney will allow noxious smoke into your home.
