Chimney Sweep Services in Fort McMurray
The main purpose of contacting a professional chimney sweep cleaner is to prevent fires in relation to wood stoves, fireplaces and pellet burning units. As trained chimney sweep we don’t just clean the whole chimney; we also perform a final visual inspection to make sure there are no unsafe conditions that can lead to home fires or unsafe air quality in the house.
How frequently should you have chimney sweep check your system?
That depends on who you ask; NFPA standard 211 says that you should have the fireplace, chimney and vents inspected every year followed by cleaning and maintenance if needed. We agree with this inspection to make sure that no animals built any nests that would interfere with the proper operation of the chimney. There could also be hidden structure damage that occurred which could also make the chimney a hazard.
“Chimney Safety Institute of America” says that if there is a ¼” buildup of soot to clean the chimney or sooner if there is any glaze present in the system. This is widely considered enough of a fuel source to cause a chimney fire capable of spreading to the home.
