There is nothing quite like the warm glow of a fire from a fireplace on a chilly night. In order to keep that home fire safely burning, it is important to have masonry chimneys inspected and cleaned regularly in order to prevent chimney repair. In fact, the National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners who burn solid fuels like wood, coal, or pellets, have their chimneys cleaned and inspected yearly and cleaned as needed depending on usage. This practice will identify defects that could permit deadly gases to vent out into a home’s living spaces and ensure the structural integrity of the chimney. Regular cleaning will also prevent chimney fires that can result from the buildup of a natural byproduct of burning wood known as creosote.
Proper chimney maintenance is also important for homeowners who use their chimneys to vent boilers and gas or oil-fired furnaces. Those chimneys are also at risk for building up byproducts from the burning of oil and gas and should be cleaned regularly.
