Why should I get my chimney cleaned?

When wood burns it produces unburned byproducts of incomplete combustion.  They travel up the chimney in the form of smoke, some going out into the atmosphere, and the rest collect on the inside of the chimney when the gases cool as "creosote".  The normal temperature inside a chimney when exhausting wood smoke is 300 to 500 degrees. However, when dangerous levels of creosote build up in the flue, (this level may be as small as 1/8 inch) and a chimney fire occurs, the temperature can increase to 1500 - 2000 degrees.  These dangerously high temperatures can cause flue liners to crack or shatter, metal chimney liners to buckle or split open, chimneys may split open, and the thermal shock created by the instant jump in temperature can blow bricks out of a chimney.  With the integrity of the chimney compromised there is a chance that your home could catch on fire.

Many times chimney fires can start in the attic where you don't see it until it's too late.  Chimney fires can also cause flaming creosote to fly out of your chimney top and on to your roof or adjacent trees.  The best way to prevent a chimney fire and damage to your chimney or home is to have your chimney cleaned.

The National Fire Protection Association, (NFPA) recommends that if you use your chimney you should have it inspected yearly by a professional, and cleaned if necessary.

Why should I get my dryer vent cleaned ?

Dryer Manufacturers, Fire Departments, Insurance Companies, and The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission agree that annual maintenance is important.  Even with new construction, it is important to have the dryer vent system inspected by a professional.  The technician will then be able to determine a good maintenance schedule.

Dryer duct cleaning is recommended to prevent lint buildup and prevent potential fires. It will also improve drying times and dryer efficiency.

These are warning signs to let you know that there may be a potential fire hazard:

  • Clothes, especially towels or jeans, take a long time to dry.

  • If your clothing is still damp at the end of a normal drying cycle or requires longer dryer times, then you may have a fire hazard in and around your clothes dryer.

  • Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the drying cycle.

  • The flapper on the vent hood does not open when the dryer is on.
