If you own a wood-burning fireplace, regular maintenance and cleaning should be among your top concerns. A nice fire can be relaxing and it can be a nice way to heat the room, but when the chimney is poorly maintained, this practice can pose a serious fired hazard. Hiring a chimney sweep once a year is a good step toward protecting your home and making sure that your chimney and fireplace are safe.
"The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that you have your chimney cleaned and inspected at least once a year."
The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that you have your chimney cleaned and inspected at least once a year. This goes for people that use their chimney regularly and those that only use it a few times a year. Even if you do not use it regularly, a blockage could have formed or an animal could have tried nesting in the chimney. The annual cleaning and inspection ensures that the chimney is clean, safe for use and that all of the components are in proper working condition.
To guard against fire, carbon monoxide poisoning and property damage, a yearly professional inspection and cleaning is a small price to pay. Most chimney fires are the result of poor cleaning and maintenance practices, and you can avoid all of this by taking this yearly step.
When you talk about chimney cleaning, the rule is that you should have it done at least once a year, but some homes may need have a cleaning twice a year. Depending on the frequency with which you use the chimney, your burning practices and the types of wood you burn, creosote can build up at different rates.
