Common Questions About Chimney Cleaning

Chimney cleaning is a dirty job. For this reason, most homeowners hire a professional chimney sweeping company. Such businesses can service both gas or wood fireplaces. The contractor will be familiar with common cleaning techniques as well as how to repair the various parts. Before hiring a chimney sweep, it is best to familiarize yourself with the following information.

  • Why does my fireplace or stove draw smoke into the room?
    The problem is probably caused by negative air pressure, a phenomena called the stack effect. This is the way air moves in and out of buildings. The difference in both temperature and moisture level of the air creates buoyancy, which separates the hot and cold air.

  • How can I keep the birds, animals, and moisture out?
    To keep pests and rain out of your flue, you should invest in a quality chimney cap. This device fits over the top of the chimney and made in such a way that smoke can go out, but nothing can go in.

  • What sort of problems are common with chimneys?
    Widespread issues with chimneys include flues being blocked by obstacles, cracks in bricks caused by house settling, and the buildup of moisture and creosote, which is tar created by burning woods.

  • How often should I get my chimney cleaned?
    The answer to this question will vary depending if you have a gas or wood fireplace, and how often it is used. Chimneys should be cleaned and inspected regularly to ensure they are safe to use. If you have an open fireplace, this process should be done every two to three years. Fireplace inserts and wood stoves should be looked at once a year, after they are no longer in use.

    Performance of your stove and fireplace is dependent on cleaning and inspections. Hire a chimney sweep to ensure the safety of the flue, liner, and damper. If a damper fails to open properly, carbon monoxide can build up and enter your home. The same is true of the liner breaks apart and blocks venting. Carbon monoxide is a danger with any fuel source, including propane and kerosene.

    Creosote occurs when wood or coal does not burn fully. You don't have to worry about creosote with gas appliances. Burning at temperatures between 270 and 470 is optimal for reducing the risk of flammable creosote build up. Hardware stores sell magnetic thermometers that you put on your stove pipe. It's also a safe practice to hire a chimney sweep at the end of every burning season to remove creosote and inspect your flue, brick fireplace, and liner.

    A thorough job involves several passes of the flue with a stiff bristled brush. The tool is attached to ropes that are pulled from the roof top to the bottom. Each pass loosens soot and creosote. They fall to the bottom where they are removed through a metal door with a shovel or vacuum. Dispose of the ashes, soot, and creosote dust in a metal trash can. Use the ashes as mulch around trees. In winter months, the ashes also help add grip on ice or densely packed snow.

    Before hiring an expert, ask if they are CSIA certified. This ensure their training covered all aspects of installing and cleaning, as well as repairing gas, wood, and coal burning appliances. They should also check that the pipe or liner is insulated correctly. Look for commercial and residential companies that are insured and carry state certification, if required in your area.
