Performing regular chimney cleaning will help to prevent deposit build-up—which can cause a chimney fire. Capitol Chimney Service also offers the following cleaning services:
Gas and Oil Chimney Cleaning
The best time of the year to clean an oil chimney is in the spring time after the heating season, when the oil furnace is subjected to long running cycles.
Woodstoves require maintenance on a yearly basis to assure safe, proper operation and prevent chimney fires.
Cleaning the fireplace should ideally come at a time when you do not expect to use it for a while, as in the warm summer months, to remove ash, soot and smoke build-up.
Why Should I Get Chimney Cleaning?
When wood burns, it creates a build-up of a highly flammable byproduct called creosote in your chimney. Creosote build-up can reduce your fireplace efficiency and also cause chimney fires. Soot and other debris can also cause blockages in your chimney and reduce fireplace efficiency.
How Often Should I Get a Chimney Cleaning?
While this depends a lot on how often you use your fireplace, a professional can tell you whether or not you need to get a chimney cleaning following a recommended yearly chimney inspection. In general, you should call for chimney cleaning when soot builds-up to 1/8 inch, or when you notice a glaze on the flue.
Ideally, you should call for an inspection and chimney cleaning before you plan to use your fireplace and chimney during the colder seasons—usually during the summer or early fall.
