Of all the chimney services we provide for homeowners in Carmel, IN, chimney sweeping and cleaning is one of the most important. Every time a wood-burning fireplace is lit, you will see smoke billowing out of the chimney.
The smoke is a mixture of toxic gases and other contaminants including carbon monoxide, soot and creosote, among others.
Gas Burning Fireplaces & Creosote
While most of the contaminants are expelled through the chimney, creosote is a little tricky. Some of this flammable, sticky and tarry substance clings to the walls inside the flue and continues to accumulate with every burn. Even gas-burning fireplaces produce creosote, albeit in smaller quantities. Since as little as 1/8th of an inch of creosote is enough to spark a chimney fire, the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and fire safety experts recommend all homeowners have an annual chimney sweep.
Importance Of Chimney Sweep & Cleaning
Each year the Carmel Fire Department responds to more than 100 structure fires, including chimney fires. In fact, chimney fires are among the most common fires in a home. That’s why chimney sweeping, and cleaning is so important.
You can call us to schedule your annual chimney sweep at a time that is convenient for you. A certified chimney sweep will arrive in a well-marked company truck wearing a company uniform with the appropriate insignias. The specialist will make a visual inspection of the chimney interior and exterior checking for obstructions, damages or leaks.
Once the inspection is complete, the sweep will put on protective gear and use specialized equipment and tools to thoroughly clean the flue to remove creosote, soot and other types of residue. This is also a great time to have any of your chimney or fireplace questions answered, especially if you are planning a fireplace upgrade or renovation project.
