Here are some reasons:
You Need Your Chimney to Be Thoroughly Cleaned or Swept
As you can imagine, a clean chimney will be more efficient than a dirty one. It is why you should list down routine chimney cleaning as part of your maintenance checklist. If there is a buildup of ash, creosote, and other particles obstructing your chimney, then your chimney’s function could be disrupted. Additionally, this could lead to increased smoke inside of your house which is harmful to your family’s health. It could also cause insufficient ventilation and poor combustion of firewood, which actually renders having a chimney kind of pointless.
You Need to Be Sure There are No Animals Nesting
If you rarely have your chimney inspected and cleaned, there is a big chance that animals like squirrels, as well as birds could see its potential as a great nest. Before you know it, you have a whole bunch of wildlife living in your chimney. The nest itself is an obstruction. And trapped animals, of course, are a major problem, too. It is not safe to take action if you are not trained to handle such a situation. You don’t have to trouble yourself with it, either. The solution is quite simple- give MGG Chimney Sweep a call and we’ll deal with the trapped animals, and their nests for you.
