Problems Caused by a Dirty Chimney

When chimneys go uncleaned for long periods of time, problems arise. For example, hazardous materials such as soot, creosote, and nesting materials build up on the inside. These materials easily catch fire, which jeopardizes the safety of your family and home. Additionally, dirty and unchecked chimneys are more susceptible to water damage and leaks. Water damage not only jeopardizes the health of your chimney, but your entire home.

Dirty chimneys also cause problems with the efficiency of your chimney system. Oftentimes, a dirty chimney means the flue is blocked. Therefore, they cannot properly ventilate the smoke and hazardous byproducts of fire out of your home. The smoke then comes back down into your home and exposes your family to hazardous chemicals such as carbon monoxide while creating an unpleasant and smoky room. Finally, a dirty chimney often leads to more costly repairs down the road. If the chimney is not cleaned regularly, the problems only grow and cause more damage. Luckily, our staff can clean your chimney and help prevent any of these problems!
