As the weather gets colder in the coming months, you are more likely to take advantage of one of the best features in your home: your chimney. A luxurious and comforting way to stay warm, a chimney is a wonderful addition to your home. However, if left dirty and unclean, your chimney can pose a number of dangerous and unhealthy risks to you and your family. It is extremely important you do your part as a homeowner to keep your chimney as clean as possible, especially in the winter months--you and your family’s lives could very well depend on it.
The following are important reasons to ensure your chimney is regularly cleaned:
- Safety – A dirty chimney can very quickly allow smoke, toxins, and other dangerous fumes to pervade your home, poisoning you and your loved ones. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a often referred to as the silent killer. Also, a dirty chimney may cause a fire, due to the creosote and soot sticking to the flue and masonry. This buildup, when in contact with extreme heat and burning embers, may result in a fire in your home.
- Efficiency – A clean chimney means there is an adequate amount of circulation in your air, reducing the amount energy efficiency require to burn wood and other fossil fuels.
- Prevention – When your chimney is dirty, it is far more likely to break down and require a repair. This means the flue liner, smoke shelf, damper, and masonry, can be ruined due to the layer of wood, soot, dirt, and ash.
- Odor – Whatever buildup occurs in your chimney, it is likely to cause a number of foul odors to permeate your home.
While you may be tempted, cleaning your chimney yourself is not recommended--it is far better to enlist in the help of a Dallas chimney cleaning professional, such as ours at NOA Services.
