About Chimney Sweeping
Chimney sweeping is an integral part of maintaining an efficient wood burning system. Keeping the chimney clean not only requires burning the correct wood at the appropriate temperature, but also removing the inevitable ash and creosote deposits that accumulate. There are several other reasons to sweep your chimney on an annual basis.
- Verification of a properly maintained appliance and venting.
- To ensure buildup of creosote does not create corrosion.
- To verify there are no blockages.
- To reduce the chance of odor caused by downdraft.
- Many insurance policies require annual sweeping by a professional.
