The importance of annual chimney maintenance

Our fireplaces and chimneys need annual maintenance in order to continue burning safely and efficiently. One of the most important ways to keep your chimney system safe in good condition is through a chimney sweeping and inspection.

During a chimney sweeping, the chimney technician uses brushes, vacuums, and other tools and equipment to remove soot, ash, and creosote from the flue. The removal of creosote is especially important; while it is a naturally occurring byproduct of combustion, creosote is highly flammable. When it accumulates in the flue, the risk of accidental ignition of the creosote – and chimney fires – increases significantly.

Another important part of annual chimney maintenance is a chimney inspection.

“A chimney inspection is like an annual dental check-up,” says Ashley Eldridge, Director of Education for the CSIA. “It’s preventative maintenance that helps minimize potential hazards.”

A chimney inspection allows the chimney technician to view all accessible portions of the interior and exterior of the chimney system if any areas of damage or deterioration are found, recommendations for repairs can be made.

Trust Us With Your Annual Chimney Sweeping

While sweeping out ash from the firebox or removing smudges from glass doors might make your fireplace look cleaner, professional maintenance is required in order to keep your fireplace burning safely and efficiently. An annual chimney sweeping is the best way to keep your fireplace in excellent condition year after year.

We take time each year to schedule maintenance for our furnaces, HVAC systems, vehicles, and more. Our chimneys are no different; they need regular, annual maintenance in order to continue to operate safely and efficiently. Without regular maintenance, chimneys are at risk of performance problems, interior or exterior damage, and chimney fires.

According to National Fire Protection Association Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”

The CSIA, or Chimney Safety Institute of America also recommends that homeowners have their chimney swept and inspected by a certified chimney sweep at least once per year. Sweepings should also be done any time 1/8th of an inch of soot accumulates in the flue; this amount of buildup is typically seen after one full cord of wood has been burned. If you burn more than a cord of wood in a single season, it may be beneficial to schedule an additional mid-winter chimney sweeping.

What to expect during a chimney sweeping

To ensure the safety of your chimney technician, please stop using your fireplace or stove at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment time. Expect your Clean Sweeps of Michigan chimney sweep to arrive on time and act in a courteous, respectful, and professional manner in your home.

During the chimney sweeping, our CSIA certified chimney sweeps use brooms, brushes, and a variety of other tools to remove soot, ash, and creosote  from the flue. A chimney inspection may be performed at the same time as the sweeping; inspections are an important tool and can help identify signs of damage or deterioration in the fireplace or chimney.

Trust a certified chimney sweep with your chimney safety

While anyone with a brush and a truck can call themselves a chimney sweep, only a small number of professionals have completed the education and training necessary to earn certifications from the Chimney Safety Institute of America. At Clean Sweeps of Michigan, we are proud to employ CSIA certified chimney sweeps; this ensures our customers receive the very best in safety and service from our chimney technicians. Since 1980, we have proudly been providing fireplace and chimney services to our friends and neighbors in Mid-Michigan, Northern Indiana, and Northern Ohio.
