Don't risk your family's health in a dangerous chimney fire. If it has been a while since you've had your chimney swept and inspected, call Dustless Duct before you use your fireplace.
Dustless Duct will check for creosote deposits and for deterioration of the chimney liner. Creosote is a highly flammable byproduct of burning wood, and it adheres to the chimney liner, building up over time like as a tar-like substance. Once there is enough creosote, it can be set alight by sparks flying up from the fireplace. The heat of the resulting fire can cause cracking and splitting of the chimney structure, allowing the fire to spread to your home as well.
To safely enjoy your hearth, chimney cleaning and maintenance should be performed at the beginning of the fall and winter season, before you use your fireplace for the first time each year. And if you use your fireplace frequently, your chimney should be checked every two to three months to see if it needs to be cleaned again.
We also offer installation of chimney caps, to keep sparks from landing on the roof and igniting it and to keep debris and animals out of the chimney that could obstruct it.
Fire is never completely safe, but Dustless Duct's professional chimney sweeps will help you enjoy the crackle and warmth of firewood burning in the fireplace as safely as possible. Call us today for your home, for your family, and for your peace of mind.
