8 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.

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 these parts of your fireplace chimney shown in the diagram above:

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

These are the most basic pieces to your fireplace anatomy.  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

We had a very professional technician come out to inspect our chimney and give it a clean. He did a very thorough job, taking several pictures as he went through the inspection and cleaning process. When he was finished, he sat down with us and went through the pictures and described what he saw and if any follow up work would be needed.

Sam Berry came out to inspect my chimney & clean it. He used a camera to show me what made my fireplace unsafe to use. He explained in detail and provided me with a full report including pictures. He was able to schedule repair work for the next day. Shane, Lead Tech, and Jared came out on time. They were two very professional, polite and hard working young men. They covered all work areas and left everything clean after work was completed. They did a great job and went over everything with me including pictures of the completed work. They did a great job. I can’t wait to enjoy my first fire. I highly recommend this Company. I will be using them for my annual inspections and chimney maintenance.

Joanne

I highly recommend Full Service Chimney for anyone needing a Kansas City Chimney Sweep. Following a routine chimney inspection the experts at Full Service Chimney quickly identified a major defect in the utility flue system in my chimney. Due to the severity of the situation they adjusted their schedule to get the repair team onsite as soon as possible. My top two concerns when dealing with any contractor are communication and quality of service. The team at Full Service Chimney provided clear communication and impeccable service throughout the entire process. Can't speak highly enough of this organization. You won't be disappointed.
