Chimney Sweeping

Keep your chimney safe and efficient.

CHIMNEY SWEEPING SERVICES IN PORTER, LAPORTE & LAKE COUNTIES

Whenever you light up the stove, fireplace, or insert, byproducts of combustion are carried up and out of your chimney system. Unfortunately, some of these byproducts like soot, ash, and creosote can settle along the chimney and build up on the walls of the liner.

The Risks of Chimney Buildup

Inefficiency

If the walls of the flue liner are caked with residue, airflow or draft is reduced, and the attached appliance will suffer in terms of efficiency. As a result, you may end up burning through more fuel and getting less heat.

Chimney Fire

Creosote, which is a tacky or hard residue that can build up along the chimney’s walls over time, is highly flammable. For this reason, it can easily ignite and spark a chimney fire, which can rapidly spread to other areas of your home.

Liner & Damper Damage

As these corrosive byproducts settle on your flue liner, your damper, and the other components of your chimney system, they can eat away at the metal and lead to holes, rust, and other damage.

More Buildup

With restricted airflow (due to buildup) comes even more buildup. Why? Buildup along the walls of the chimney flue can slow the exit of byproducts and force them to settle, layer upon layer.
