Common Signs Your Chimney Needs to be Swept
Your chimney might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to your home's cleanliness, but it should never be overlooked. Not only can a dirty chimney negatively affect your home's air quality, it can also turn into a hazard and fill your home with smoke the next time you start a fire. Some signs to keep a lookout for include:
- Your fire smells off - That distinct smell of burning firewood is supposed to be pleasant, but if your chimney is full of soot then it could have a musky unpleasant odor and you should call in our Los Angeles chimney sweep specialists.
- Your chimney with no fire smells bad - Soot smells bad when there is or isn't a fire. So if there's every a smokey smell of soot originating from your chimney then you need a chimney sweeping.
- Hard time lighting a fire - When your creosote is super thick, you might not get the easy ventilation that combusting gases of need to ignite flames. If you're having a hard time lighting dry wood then get our Los Angeles chimney sweep technicians in pronto.
- Visible soot or creosote - If you can see visible, black soot or creosote then you'll need a chimney sweeping. Clean your fireplace, take a flashlight and get on your back for a good view up your chimney. If it's so dirty that you couldn't imagine doing those three things then give us a call.
How Often Should a Chimney be Swept?
The frequency of how many times a chimney must swept depends on what is being burned and how often it is burning. Our Los Angeles chimney sweeping team along with many other professionals in the field suggest having your chimney swept at least twice a year for wood. Again, this changes with different items so it is best thing to reach out to your local chimney specialist for an accurate estimation.
Performing Thorough Chimney Sweeps
Before we begin the chimney sweeping process, the fireplace opening is tightly covered with heavy plastic. We cover any nearby furniture to protecting your belongings. However, it is important to understand that 100% grime-free cleaning is impossible, no matter how careful we are. We make every effort possible to protect your home, but recommend that homeowners consider scheduling chimney cleaning before painting, replacing drapes, or house cleaning services.
Once the fireplace is covered, we go to the roof and sweep the chimney. After a thorough initial sweep, the team stops to let everything settle and then sweeps a second time. Once everything has settled and come down to the fireplace, we carefully remove the plastic and vacuum out the debris. The last part of the sweep is brushing out the fire area and vacuuming a second time. Once the cleaning is complete, our Los Angeles chimney inspector does a complete inspection.
