When Should I Get my Chimney Cleaned?

So, you’ve made the decision that you will want to get your chimney cleaning done at least once a year, which is exactly what you should do. Now the question is… when should you get your chimney cleaned? When do you want to call in the professional that will be handling this project for you? These are some of the questions we will answer in this article. We will also cover some other things that will help you keep a properly working chimney.

It is recommended that you have your chimney cleaned more often than not. It may cost a bit more, but consider it preventative action so you don’t have to worry about the chimney having problems as time goes on. By increasing the longevity of your chimney, you will actually save money in the long run. So, here’s a quick look at the three times that you should be calling us in to take care of a chimney cleaning for you.

At the end of the winter season. If you have been using your fireplace, woodstove, or other heating unit a lot during the winter, then you definitely want to make sure that you call us to come in and do a thorough cleaning for you. Why? Because as the winter goes on, your chimney will be getting a build up of debris from the outside (yes, even if you have a chimney cap) and you’re getting soot from your heating unit as well. The soot build up and the debris makes it much more dangerous for you to utilize the chimney because it makes it more likely for you to have a fire in your chimney, which could destroy your home or at the very least, cause your chimney to collapse.

At the beginning of fall. The spring and summer are long periods of time that you’re likely not going to be using your fireplace, especially not on a regular basis. That means that animals may be making their homes in there, or you’re getting leaves and other things stuck in there throughout the year. If this happens, then your chimney is not going to work very well.  The whole purpose of a chimney is to make sure that smoke and soot leave your home when you’re burning a fire. If there are animal nests and such clogging it up, that means that your chimney isn’t going to be able to do its job and, like above, it’s a lot more likely that you’re going to end up with a fire or your chimney collapsing. So, get your chimney cleaned sometime during the fall, before you start using the chimney and heating unit on a regular basis again.

Whenever you have changed your heating unit.  If you have changed the heater that you’re using with your chimney, but you haven’t gotten your chimney cleaned and inspected, you’re going to want to make sure that you do it at that point in time as well. When you get it installed, there may be debris that gets up there, and then you have the same issue as before. You also want to make sure that the stability of your chimney hasn’t been compromised, so you want to make sure that a full cleaning and inspection has been done and that you’re ready to go when you want to start using your new heating unit again. Usually a cleaning and inspection go hand in hand, so you don’t have to worry about having any problems after a full cleaning has been done and you won’t have to spend extra money either.

So, when was the last time that you got a chimney cleaning? If it has been a long time, then it may be time for you to consider calling our company. We can schedule you with an appointment and make sure that you’ve got everything that you need in order to keep your chimney cleaned throughout the entire day. We can’t wait to help you with everything that you need and give you advice about how you should take care of your chimney in the future.
