6 Reasons To Clean Your Chimney

1. Improve Performance

As a chimney flue gets coated with creosote  and soot. The draft and flow is reduced, meaning smoke is likely to backdraft into the home. Nothing is more frustrating than having a smoky Fireplace.

2. Sweeping Helps Prevent Flue Fires

Regular maintenance of a your fireplace and chimney flue helps to keep your family safe by preventing flue fires from happening inside the chimney.

3. Reduce the Risk of Carbon Monoxide

All chimneys run the risk of pushing carbon monoxide back into a home. Chimney’s that are not cleaned regularly are at a much higher risk for potentially fatal exhaust issues.

Annual Inspection and Cleaning are a must for homeowners with fireplaces or gas appliances.

4. Eliminate Foul Chimney Odor

If you’ve ever wondered why your living room smells like a campfire, then you can understand the need to stop chimney odors.

Keep a clean chimney and a fresh house!

5. Remove Sooty Creosote & Debris

Creosote is flammable fuel to chimney fires. Since creosote cannot be avoided, we must minimize it by removing it from the flue before it builds up to become a fire hazard.

6. Stop Animal Entry

A chimney cleaning can often detect the presence of pest animals and all types of critters that make homes in flues. An inspection will find the details and provide options for animal entry solutions, like caps.

7. Extend Your Chimneys Lifetime

Well maintained chimneys can increase the value of your home and last the span of many decades. Annual cleanings reduce the risk of costly chimney repairs in the future.

8. Peace of Mind

Furnace flues and fireplace systems have the responsibility of separating you from the fire. Keeping up on maintenance ensures your chimneys’ condition when you wish to enjoy a fire.

Parts of a Chimney

Chimney Parts Diagram

Whether your heating system is gas or wood-burning, every fireplace has a chimney. It’s purpose is to vent smoke and exhaust fumes safely outside the home. Making the chimneys job one of, if not the most important in home maintenance, but is often overlooked. 

See chimney parts shown in the diagram above:

  • Firebox & Grate
  • Lintel Area
  • Fireplace Damper
  • Smoke Shelf & Chamber
  • Fireplace Flue Tiles

These are the basic parts of a chimney.  It takes a whole system functioning properly to keep your home safe and warm. If even one part is failing, then the home is at risk for a flue fire in the chimney or exposure to carbon monoxide. For this reason, chimney cleanings are recommended at least once per year.

What Our Customers Say

Sam did a great job cleaning our chimney in our new house. He was on time, courteous, and very professional. He recommended a few additional services, but also informed me it would not be unsafe to use the chimney until we had the available funds. If we end up fixing, we will absolutely use Full Service Chimney again.

Andy

Kevin did a great job explaining the problems with my chimneys in my 1983 new home purchase. I am excited for my new gas fireplace they will install. I knew fireplaces that old probably would not facilitate burning wood.

Sheila

Zach was awesome and explained everything so I could understand! Quoted great price on the spot! Very professional and treated like family!
