Signs Your Home in Webster, NY Needs a Chimney Sweep Expert
A professional chimney cleaning by a Certified Chimney Sweep® annually is a small investment that pays big dividends in helping to reduce fire risk and exposure to poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas. Chimney Creosote accumulation over time is the primary cause of house fires. If you are experiencing one or more of the following signs, call Felgemacher at Call (585) 308-4914 to schedule a chimney cleaning as soon as possible:
Dark stains on the damper
Soot and hardened creosote will appear as dark brown or black stains on the damper with a hard, tarry, and flammable material. It also indicates that there is likely to be creosote build-up in other chimney sections.
Fires are smoky
When your chimney contains a large amount of soot, creosote, and other organic material, you will notice that the fireplace fills with smoke and may smell like you’re at a campfire. It also indicates that there may be a flue obstruction, preventing the smoke and harmful gases from exiting your home.
The fireplace is difficult to light
Having difficulty starting or maintaining fires is another sign you need a chimney sweep. A clogged flue restricts oxygen flow, making it more difficult to burn and control the fire in the fireplace. The incomplete combustion also increases soot and creosote in the chimney.
Hearing animal noises
small birds, bats, squirrels, and other neighborhood critters are always looking for a warm place to spend the night and often make their way into an open flue. Also, the nests they build can clog the vent, a fire hazard. So, if you hear chirping, scratching, or other noises in the chimney, it’s time to call a chimney sweep to ensure your chimney is safe.
