Common Chimney Cleaning Mistakes

Ignoring the health of your chimney can have disastrous consequences. From chimney fires to harmful poisonous gases, there are an endless list of reasons to ensure that you have your chimney inspected regularly. In this blog, we’re going to go over some of the most common mistakes that chimney owners tend to make when it comes to the annual inspection…

  • Most chimney owners will make the mistake of presuming that what you can’t see doesn’t matter however this is a very dangerous way to look at things. A material called creosote can build up on the inside of the chimney flue and though a thin layer may not be visible, it can still cause a fire.

 

  • Cheaper services are more attractive because they offer clients the potential to save some extra cash, however sometimes this can backfire. This is because you tend to get what you pay for and opting for the cheaper service means that you can end up receiving a low quality inspection. Make sure you research multiple companies before you part with any cash and remember that a price which seems too good to be true is best to be avoided.

 

  • It is not uncommon for homeowners who hire a chimney sweep to forget to check the credentials of the company they have invited into their home which means that professionals have the ability to lie and get away without suffering any consequences. You should always be strict and never let a chimney sweep complete work without ensuring they have all the necessary documents beforehand.
