Why should you complete regular fireplace cleaning?


Wood Burning Fireplace

Cleaning Solutions - Fireplace Cleaning - Content 1The Fire Department will tell you that if you are regularly burning wood in your hearth, the chimneys should be inspected and cleaned yearly. When you burn wood it creates resins, gases, and particulates that do not burn off, but collect in the chimney of your fireplace condensing to create creosote buildup. Creosote buildup in your chimney is highly flammable, creating a fire hazard – if the creosote ignites, so does your chimney!

We can complete wood burning chimney cleaning at your furnace and duct cleaning appointment. Suction is placed in the fireplace to collect the soot & creosote. The chimney is cleaned with air pressure and the skipper wand. The ash pit is also cleaned as well. The creosote and ash buildup is suctioned through our vacuum hoses with no mess in your home!

Always plan ahead – wood fireplaces cannot be used 72 hours prior to cleaning to ensure all creosote deposits are under no chance of being ignited during the cleaning.

 

Gas Burning Fireplace

The burner chambers and pilot assembly create carbon buildup which needs to be regularly cleaned to provide consistent operation and prevent any mechanical failures. A clean gas fireplace ensures more efficient gas usage with more energy dollars staying in your wallet.

We can complete gas fireplace cleaning and servicing at your furnace and duct cleaning appointment or as an individual service. Cleaning includes the burners, pilot assembly, and glass which accumulates a white residue from combustion materials. Gas fireplaces are specially designed to ensure an air tight seal so no combustion gases are released inside during operation. Our servicemen are certified to disassemble, clean, service, and reassemble your gas fireplace with that airtight seal for safe operation.

Always plan ahead – gas fireplaces cannot be used 24 hours prior to cleaning and servicing to ensure all components are cooled enough for safe handling and cleaning.
