Chimney sweepings aren’t something to put off, and if one is needed, you can bet your system won’t be functioning efficiently – or safely, for that matter – until it’s done. We’ve got the facts behind the importance of investing in this service regularly. Let’s dive in…

Why a Sweeping Is Important

Probably the biggest reason why sweepings are important is because of creosote. Creosote is a byproduct of combustion, and because creosote is flammable in nature, it can cause some pretty devastating damage if a lot is present. The more you have, the more likely you are to have a chimney fire, which will send flames throughout the interior of your flue, wreaking havoc all along the way.

Investing a little money here and there into avoiding chimney fires reduces the likelihood that you’ll have to spend significant dollars on major chimney repairs down the line.

Another reason sweepings are important is because they allow us to ensure no clogs are present in the flue before you fire up the fireplace. Creosote can block things up, but so can things like outside debris and curious critters (along with their nesting materials). Clogs lead to smoke backup and poor airflow, both of which greatly affect your ability to enjoy your fireplace.

All in all, regular sweepings are a necessity for maintaining both chimney health and the safety of your household.
