What Can Cause a Chimney Fire

Chimney liners or structural problems can allow high temperatures, sparks and embers to escape to combustible areas in walls, roofs or attics. A common cause of chimney fires is creosote inside the chimney catching fire and burning inside the chimney. A good cleaning and regular inspections can help to prevent some of these common issues.

Protect Yourself And Your Chimney

There is no such thing as a “safe” chimney. Of the home fires that started from a chimney or heating system, 98 percent came from chimneys that had not been swept or were in sub-standard condition. If you don’t have your chimney inspected and cleaned regularly, you are putting yourself at risk. Schedule your chimney cleaning and inspection today.

Why Clean Your Chimney Regularly

When chimney systems are not kept up to proper standards, a regular cleaning may not be enough. If a chimney liner has cracked flues or missing mortar, creosote can start to build up outside of the flue system where it cannot be cleaned. This increases the risk of a fire and prevents the system from properly protecting your home from the heat of a fire when it does happen.

How Long Does a Chimney Cleaning Take

Our cleanings take about 45-60 minutes per flue depending on how dirty they are. However, there are a few different factors that influence how much time will be needed. These factors include how many chimney flues you have and the height of the chimney.
