How often should you clean your chimney?

Here at Safe­way Chim­ney Sweeps, your safe­ty is our main con­cern. We are in busi­ness to keep you, your fam­i­ly and your home safe when it comes to your fire­place. Here’s an excerpt from a Today article.

Before the cool, crisp days of autumn make cozy evenings in front of the fire­place irre­sistible, take time to make sure your fire­place is as safe as it is invit­ing. A 2016 report from the Nation­al Fire Pro­tec­tion Asso­ci­a­tion states that a lead­ing fac­tor con­tribut­ing to home heat­ing fires was the fail­ure to clean chimneys.

Not usu­al­ly a DIY chore, it’s best to hire a CSIA Cer­ti­fied Chim­ney Sweep to tack­le this job, rec­om­mends Ash­ley Eldridge, edu­ca­tion direc­tor for Chim­ney Safe­ty Insti­tute of Amer­i­ca. That’s because clean­ing and inspect­ing chim­neys involves a lot more than just sweep­ing soot.”

Please call us before you fire up that fire­place this fall. We have the expe­ri­ence and tools required to pro­fes­sion­al­ly make sure your fire­place is safe and ready to pro­vide you with warmth and enjoyment.
