There is no specific rule that tells you the correct time for chimney cleaning. However, you should be aware that when creosote forms inside your chimney, it can build up. This can potentially lead to a chimney fire. One way to reduce the chances of this happening is to make sure that your chimney has enough combustion air. This will help ensure that your fire burns hot, and burns clean. Additionally, you want to make sure that air flows up the chimney, and not down and back into your house. When that happens, it’s called a downdraft.
The answer in most cases is “no.” A professional should be used to ensure that a chimney cleaning is ultimately done in the safest, most effective manner possible. A true professional will do more than simply push a chimney brush, acting as a chimney sweep from Mary Poppins. In contrast, the true professional will not only use a chimney brush, but will also recognize deterioration and other venting problems, and can help you get those issues completely resolved.
When you give SOS Restoration a call, you can expect that a friendly customer service representative will answer and provide you with all the answers you need to make an informed, wise decision about your chimney cleaning needs.
