It is highly recommended that your chimney be inspected and cleaned at least annually. There are many important reasons for you to have this done professionally.
For one, you want to make sure that your family’s health comes first. Cleaning your fireplace and chimney ensures that. Hazardous gasses like carbon monoxide is produced when you burn fuel. At low levels, carbon monoxide is known to cause dizziness, confusion, nausea, headaches, and even fainting. At a really high level, though, it can cause death. Most of the poisoning incidents due to excessive carbon monoxide are because of blocked chimneys. A malfunctioning flue or a blocked chimney could result to a buildup of carbon monoxide. That is why it is crucial that you have a certified W.E.T.T. inspection done to see the condition of your chimney.
Secondly, if you do not do at least an annual chimney cleaning, naturally, grime and soot could accumulate around the flue. What happens next is that it becomes difficult for the flue to draw up smoke so they end up entering and staying in your room. This of course, will not only leave an ugly, black film all around your hearth. It would also soil your carpets, your furniture, and any other decorations in the room. That is not something that you want to add to the list of your worries.
Another thing that you would want to avoid is chimney fire. A chimney fire can be quite chaotic, what with all the loud sounds, really dense smoke, and an extremely foul and even hazardous hot odour. However, not all chimney fires are that noticeable at their onset that neighbours would be alerted. Most of the chimney fires burn slowly and are not visible from the outside. Because they can seep into your home’s walls and set anything flammable on fire. Aside from that, chimney fire can also spread quickly onto your roof – and that could be more than destructive.
You need not go through these horrible scenarios. With thorough inspection and proper maintenance, these can all be prevented. After all, the cause of all these disasters is simply dirt in your chimney. Over a period of time, chimneys can be clogged with creosote which is a black tar-like substance. It is highly combustible. That’s another good reason to get professional chimney cleaning.
