Same as an HVAC unit your chimney requires maintenance not only for looks but for safety!
Chimneys Require Maintenance?
The job of the chimney sweep is to remove soot, blockages and built-up creosote from your chimney liner, firebox, smoke chamber and damper. This sweep will help create a safer operation of your system during the burning system.Creosote can also reduce the draw of the fireplace and reduce efficiency.
Practicing Fireplace safety is one of the best things you can do to prevent long term or serious damage to your home. Wolfman Chimney & Wildlife recommends you have your home’s chimney cleaned at least once a year- twice a year if you use your fireplace often; once in the spring, and once in the fall.
The single most important reason is the fire hazard that is created when burning wood in a fireplace. The combustion of wood releases smoke, which lines the shaft with soot. Over time this soot mixed with humidity and moisture creates a sticky dangerous substance called creosote. With a neglected fireplace this can build up and ⅛ buildup could be enough to cause a catastrophic fire.
