Issues Resolved by Chimney Cleaning

Your chimney is responsible for disposing of toxic by-products from your fireplace or wood stove. Proper maintenance is a must to ensure a safe and well-ventilated space. Invest in seeking the help of a professional chimney sweep regularly for the longevity and efficiency of your chimney. Aside from keeping it clean and lessening serious risks, regular cleaning also allows you to spot issues in your chimney immediately.

Here are the issues you can resolve with the cleaning service:

  • Blockages - blockages may sometimes be difficult to spot until it's already become worse. A regular cleaning service ensures that your chimney is free of blockages from leaves, animals, and other objects that have found their way into the chimney liner and become dislodged -- these are dangerous because they might catch fire. The chimney services offered by Chimney Genie involve removing any blockages thoroughly with the right materials, done by a certified chimney sweep team. 
  • Build-up of creosote - Creosote is tar from burning wood that may collect on your chimney liner. Because it's flammable, its build-up can be a dangerous fire hazard, causing a chimney fire that may reach your roof and entire property. Chimney Genie is equipped with the right tools to conduct a professional chimney cleaning service.

When Should You Have Your Chimney Cleaned?

It's best to seek professional chimney cleaning services during the time when you don't need to use your fireplace chimney, preferably during summer. The latest time you might want to schedule a chimney flue cleaning is around early fall. If you want to clean your chimney by yourself, late summer is the best time.

Other than your scheduled cleaning, you should clean your chimney once you've noticed the following:

  • soot and creosote falling from the flue when you're burning wood
  • creosote buildup with a sticky, honeycomb texture
  • burning more artificial wood 
  • frequent fireplace or wood stove user
  • burning unseasoned firewood

Chimney Genie ensures thorough work for leaving your chimney spick and span. Call our hotline or fill out a quote on our website for a free consultation.
