Below we have mentioned 3 vital reasons to have your chimney regularly cleaned and inspected. Take a look.
- Removal of pests and debris
Chimneys have the tendency of getting clogged with debris and animal hairs, and even their nests; birds have a habit of making their homes in the chimney. In such times, when your flue is blocked, if you light the fire, it may result in fire. Also, the smoke might enter your rooms as it can’t escape the chimneys.
- Fire prevention
With usage, often a tar-like, dark substance accumulates on the walls of your chimney. This substance, creosote, is highly inflammable. Excessive buildups might lead to fire when the temperature is extremely high or due to a stray spark.
- Increase the lifespan of the flue liner
The flue liner, being the first defense against carbon monoxide, prevents the sparks and poisonous gases from entering your rooms. It also insulates the rest of the chimney from high temperatures and corrosive chemicals.
