The Importance of Seasonal Chimney Maintenance
Regular chimney sweeping may seem like enough–after all, regular cleaning prevents fires and other dangerous hazards. However, the routine maintenance of your chimney has to do with much more since your chimney houses fire and faces the elements year round. It can, therefore, suffer from serious structural problems that can affect the rest of your home.
Having your chimney routinely inspected can allow you to spot issues like cracking flue tiles, corroding steel liners, and other issues with your chimney’s structure, before they cause serious hazards for your home.
Problems regarding your chimney’s integrity can also cause smoldering chimney fires to burn unnoticed and pose huge risks for smoke inhalation and house fires. If your chimney is not working efficiently, then smoke and flame pose a direct risk to your home. Maintaining the integrity of your chimney is the key to your safety, health, and the well-being of your home.
