5 Reasons to Clean Your Chimney
1. Preventing Fires
Chimney Soot Creosote Dangers are dangerous substances that naturally accumulate in wood-burning fireplaces. Too much creosote build-up is a ticking time bomb, acting as the catalyst for a chimney fire. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), only 1/8” of sooty build-up is enough to cause a fire. A chimney fire would not only be detrimental to your chimney system, but it could also destroy your entire home. Secure the safety of your hearth and home by scheduling an inspection and cleaning with one of our CSIA Certified Technicians.
2. Protecting the Flue
An annual chimney cleaning by an experienced professional will significantly increase the lifespan of your chimney’s flue liner and ensure your home’s safety. The flue is the gateway that takes harmful toxins, smoke, and gas to the outdoors. Suppose the chimney flue becomes compromised by an excessive build-up of creosote and soot. In that case, it can cause the fires as mentioned above. It could also allow exhaust fumes to enter your home, leading to health concerns for everyone inside.
3. Improve Heating Efficiency
One of the top benefits of owning a fireplace is the ability to efficiently and cost-effectively heat your home. Of course, if your fireplace and chimney become clogged by excessive amounts of soot or creosote, then it will fail to efficiently heat your home. An annual chimney cleaning will keep your home feeling warm, comfortable, and cozy throughout the winter months.
4. Remove Obstructions or Discover Pests
Chimneys are a frequent nesting place for birds, squirrels, and other outdoor critters and other obstructions! Suppose you attempt to start a fire with a clogged chimney. In that case, the smoke cannot properly escape outside, risking carbon monoxide poisoning. Trying to burn away the obstructions is very dangerous! Hire a certified professional to remove blockages safely.
5. Prevent a Smelly Chimney
In the warm months, a smelly chimney is one of the most common signs that your chimney needs cleaning. The smell is likely a result of creosote, soot, and animal obstructions building-up, moisture entering the chimney, or negative air pressure in the home. Avoid the stinky chimney experience altogether by scheduling your annual chimney sweep appointment with Full Service Chimney.

Now you may have some general questions, and we have answers.
How Does a Chimney Get Dirty?
Chimney’s get dirty by a build-up residue; we call soot and creosote. Both naturally occur by burning gas and wood. Without a proper cover on a chimney top, animals, tree leaves, twigs, or other natural elements can enter the chimney leaving behind a trail of environmental debris.
Similar to how a table gets dusty, whether it’s used or not… Over time, a chimney gets dirty whether you burn wood or maintain the fireplace just for its beauty and aesthetic value that a nice hearth adds to a home.
How Often Do You Need a Chimney Sweeping?
More often than not, customers call to schedule an appointment due to the foul odor from the messy soot and creosote.
As mentioned above, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that a fireplace be swept if 1/8-inch of build-up is present. (Even sooner if you notice smelly glazed creosote!)
All of your furnaces, flues, and gas fireplaces need annual chimney service to maintain good performance levels and to reduce the chance of carbon monoxide leaks into your home.
