One of the most vital aspects of owning a wood burning fireplace is ensuring the chimney is kept clean. If you skip regular maintenance, you might be putting your home and family at risk. As wood burning fireplaces are used throughout the winter, creosote builds up in the chimney, which can limit the flow of smoke. This is why it must be cleaned out regularly.
But taking the DIY approach isn’t always a viable option. Most homeowners don’t have the knowledge or tools to properly approach chimney cleaning, and may run the risk of actually making the fire hazard worse. For proper, quality sweeping, it’s recommended you enlist the services of a chimney cleaning professional.
