Why Schedule a Chimney Sweep?

Chimney Cleaning - Valparaiso IN - Northwest Fireplace and ChimneyA little soot, dust, and creosote won’t stop Santa on his big night, but it can obstruct airflow in the chimney, causing it not to work as well. When your chimney is less efficient, it’s at higher risk of fire. An inefficient chimney has a slow updraft, allowing sparks and hot gases to linger in the flue where there’s flammable creosote. Stay safe, schedule a chimney sweep now. You won’t mind the other benefits of having a clean chimney, including:

  • Burn less wood when the chimney is at its best.
    Homeowners with dirty chimney systems have to burn more wood to get to the desired heat because an inefficient chimney causes fuel to not burn completely. This makes it difficult to light and maintain a decent fire.
  • Avoid stinky odors and a smoky fire when you schedule a sweep.
    During a routine chimney sweep, Northwest Fireplace and Chimney will clean the system from top to bottom, including an assessment of the system and a no-mess guarantee.
  • Prevent damage when you schedule routine chimney sweeps.
    A clean, efficient fireplace and chimney system means less by-products produced into the flue and into the environment.
