Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer
Carbon monoxide is dangerous if it is not easily detected. Some of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are often mistaken for common illnesses such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, depression, or worse. Carbon monoxide detectors are now readily available and no home should be without at least two of them: one near the furnace and another near the sleeping area of the home.
How a Clean Chimney Benefits Your Household
Some of the few features that make a home more welcoming is a fireplace. However, this homey focal point comes with some distinct maintenance responsibilities. As all of the smoke and soot created in a fireplace exits through the chimney, it is essential to ensure that it stays clean.
Below are some of the benefits of chimney cleaning that you should know.
Prevents carbon monoxide poisoning
Carbon monoxide is an invisible and odorless gas, yet it can be poisonous and deadly at high levels. When there is a buildup of smoke byproducts, twigs, animal nests, and even the animal themselves in your chimney, it compromises the chimney’s airflow. Without effective airflow, carbon monoxide can be pushed back into your home rather than exiting through the chimney.
Increases heating efficiency
A clean chimney can also help the wood in your fireplace burn more thoroughly and efficiently. If you haven’t had a gas fireplace service come to your home in a while, the chimney is likely clogged and an insufficient amount of oxygen is reaching the burning wood. This decreases the heat of the burn and increases your heating bills.
Makes it easier to inspect
If you’ve already had professionals clean your chimney, it will be easier for a chimney sweep to do their necessary inspections. The chimney service will clean out the large soot and creosote buildups that can interfere with the inspection. These buildups can obscure the smoke shelf and damper, making it difficult to spot problems in their early stages.
Avoids chimney fires
A wood fire produces creosote, a substance that is sticky, concentrated, and highly flammable. Even a small amount of creosote can start a chimney fire. Each little fire results in progressive damage to the inside part of your chimney, which can mean expensive chimney repair.
On the other hand, a large chimney fire can lead to a disaster for your entire home. Even if you’re switching from burning wood to using gas logs, make sure to schedule a chimney cleaning to remove the dangerous creosote.
Keeps smoke going in the right direction
For how carbon monoxide can back up in a dirty chimney and enter your home, so can smoke. While you may be able to see and smell the smoke, it doesn’t make it any less dangerous for your home or family.
Inhaling smoke is neither pleasant nor safe, especially for kids. The incoming smoke and ash can also damage your furnishings, rugs, and clothing.
How Often Should You Clean Your Chimney?
Chimney cleaning depends on how much you use your fireplace or stove. The National Fire Protection Association states that chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.
So, even if you’re not using your chimney a lot- birds, squirrels, raccoons, and other critters may have been using it. This makes your chimney unsafe to use without cleaning out the accumulated debris from nesting activity.
The CSIA or Chimney Safety Institute of America says that fireplaces should be cleaned when 1/8” of sooty buildup is evident inside the chimney and flue system. If any glaze is appearing in the flue, cleaning should be done even if there is less than 1/8” of buildup. Any time an appreciable accumulation of soot and creosote occurs, it can be enough to fuel a chimney fire that may damage the chimney and even spread to the roof and home.
Furnace flue systems also require cleaning, so don’t neglect regular cleaning of your chimneys. Some heavy-use fireplaces produce a huge amount of soot and creosote during a cleaning.
When is the Best Time to Clean a Chimney?
Ideally, the best time to clean a chimney is before the start of the burning season during the spring, summer, or early fall. Before you think about building a fire or starting up your furnace because the weather has changed, it is the best time to call us for a chimney cleaning.
