Chimney maintenance is an important part of ensuring the safety of your home and your family. Chimney maintenance is necessary to the function of your chimney to ensure it is operating effectively and safely. Without regular chimney maintenance, you may be putting you and your family at risks for carbon monoxide poisoning, chimney fires, and health issues. Contact Advanced Chimney Sweep in Atlanta, GA to schedule a routine chimney maintenance visit.
Having your chimney inspected once a year allows our technicians to provide the appropriate services needed to improve the quality of your chimney. Over time, creosote can develop in your chimney. Creosote occurs when the oils in the wood don’t burn out complete, causing a cloud of smoke to develop that mixes with the chemicals and water in the chimney which leads to the development of creosote. It is normal for creosote to develop but when it isn’t properly removed, it can lead to complications. Creosote can lead to restricted airflow, which can lead to an increased risk of creosote buildup. If creosote is not removed, it can be dangerous to your health and your home. Creosote exposure can lead to skin irritation, respiratory problems, and other health concerns. It should be noted that creosote is one of the most common reasons for chimney fires. Taking preventive measures to ensure the safety of your home and health should be an important issue to all homeowners.
