There would be times when it becomes absolutely necessary to cut corners on the upkeep of your home, but for your family’s safety, you better not cut your fireplace and chimney maintenance. These two should never be neglected. And before you fully enjoy them, make sure that they are safe and clean, too.
As the top chimney experts in Simcoe and all its neighbouring towns, we recommend that you have your chimney system inspected and thoroughly cleaned at least once a year. While you might be tempted to do the task yourself to save some money, please know that this is a task better left to professionals. There are in fact, many reasons to have this job done professionally and here they are:
1. Your family’s safety should be the priority. It should always come first. That’s what we keep in mind too, whenever we do our tasks. We clean your fireplace thoroughly to ensure that as well. There are some hazardous gasses that are produced whenever you burn fuel. Carbon monoxide can cause dizziness, nausea, confusion, headaches, and possibly, fainting. Many poisoning incidents that are caused by carbon monoxide can be associated to blocked chimneys. As you see, a flue that is not functioning or a blocked chimney can lead to a buildup of carbon monoxide. That is one of the reasons you should call a W.E.T.T. certified technician from MGG Chimney Sweep to inspect your chimney to see its condition.
2. If you forget to have your chimney checked and cleaned even once a year, it is to be expected that soot and grime would accumulate around it. It then becomes challenging for the flue to draw up smoke. What happens instead is they end up seeping into and staying in your room. This could leave unsightly black film around your hearth, soil your flooring and furniture, and more. You do not want to be worrying about these things!
3. You would of course want to prevent chimney fire. It could be very chaotic, with the thick smoke, a foul and very hazardous odour, loud sounds, and more. But did you know that not all chimney fires are as dramatic as you expect it to be? In fact most chimney fires burn slowly, therefore making it more challenging to stop from the outside. But that does not mean it is not devastating. You see it can get to your home’s walls and then set things like curtains, throws, and more on fire. It could also spread onto your roofing and adds more trouble.
You do not have to face these scenarios, because these could be avoided if thorough inspection or proper maintenance is observed. As you probably notice, all the disasters that come from your chimney is connected to dirt and grime that is stuck in your chimney.
