Chimney Cleaning Metuchen NJ

Family gatherings will most likely take place around the fireplace for most of the year. Despite the fact that they are so visible, many homeowners overlook their chimneys. When you enjoy a fireplace fire, soot and creosote are continuously deposited on the chimney and its parts. The byproduct of wood burning, creosote, is extremely flammable. In the absence of regular chimney cleaning, you greatly increase your risk of a chimney fire. It takes only minutes for a chimney fire to reach the roof and consume an entire house. In addition to causing property damage, a fire can cause injury and even death. Regularly cleaning and inspecting your chimney will prevent unnecessary consequences.

Why Chimney Cleaning is Important

You should have your chimney cleaned and inspected every year if you use it frequently. In colder climates where the fireplace and chimney are used more frequently, it is advisable to clean them when 1/8 inch of buildup appears.

In addition to determining the structural integrity of your chimney, a chimney inspection will reveal whether animals have taken up residence inside it and determine whether or not it should be cleaned. It may be necessary to clean an old chimney, one that has been neglected for a year, or one that emits an unusual odor.

Chimney Cleaning is Beneficial

Together with the soot and creosote adhering to the chimney flue, fireplace smoke can contribute to incredibly dangerous house fires. The best way to prevent house fires is to regularly clean your chimney. The cleaning of your chimney can also have other benefits, besides lowering the possibility of a chimney fire. Additionally, by maintaining your chimney, you will be able to keep toxins outside of your home and away from your family, while having a more effective fireplace and a longer-lasting chimney.

Cleaning my chimney is necessary?

A chimney needs to be cleaned periodically because creosote and soot build up. If you use your chimney regularly, you should inspect and clean it annually, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Right after the burning season is the best time to clean your chimney.

How often should chimneys be cleaned?

Many heating appliances require a chimney to vent toxic fumes. Every fuel storage unit should be inspected and cleaned on a yearly basis, regardless of whether it is powered by wood, coal, corn, pellets, gas, or oil. To prevent toxic fumes from backing up into your home, you need to have your chimney cleaned periodically, as the chimney becomes dirty and becomes unusable. By having your chimney cleaned regularly, you can be assured that your chimney is safe to operate.

Are there benefits to having my chimney inspected?

What do I do if I notice sooty or black marks on the wall or carpet emanating from the heat register?

There are only two ways in which soot can enter your ductwork. Cracks in the furnace’s interior can cause soot to build up in the ductwork. Carbon monoxide can also enter your home through cracks. If soot is blowing out on the floor near your furnace and being pulled back into the fan, and then into the ductwork, there is likely a blockage in the chimney or pipe that connects to it. Ensure your chimney is clean and have it inspected. Check your furnace for proper operation. You may want to contact your insurance company if you notice soot in your home. Do not ignore the problem. Because soot is corrosive, it must be removed as soon as possible from carpets, walls, and belongings. Unfortunately, removing it without the proper equipment and training is particularly challenging. 

A properly maintained fireplace and chimney will not only make your family’s home a safer place to live, but also will help to keep your fireplace and chimney in good working order. Want to enjoy the very first cold day of the year? Make sure your chimney is well maintained!
