When it’s time to get your teeth cleaned, you go to the dentist. It’s important to you, so you check out the credentials of the place you choose so you know the dentist is qualified. Once you’ve been there, you come back when it’s time for another cleaning because you like the way the facility works, you like the doctor and the people who work for him, and because the job was done right. When it’s time to get your heating appliance cleaned, those same criteria should come into play. You’ll want to check out the credentials of the chimney sweep company you choose, and once you have the professionals come in, you’ll have them come back the next time because of the superior service and the professionalism of the people who work there.

You’re convinced that Chimney Concepts is the company to call when you need work done on your fireplace or other heating appliance, but are you convinced that you need an annual cleaning? You should be! When you live in Wisconsin, you know what a cold winter is all about. That means that you use your fireplace a lot. When you use your fireplace, the moisture that is still in your wood is released, along with other chemicals, in the form of smoke. That smoke condenses onto the interior of your chimney and causes a nasty buildup of creosote, a highly flammable substance that can cause chimney fires. Even as little as an eighth of an inch of creosote buildup can cause problems, so it’s important that you have your chimney inspected and cleaned to rid it of this buildup.
If you have a gas burning appliance, it’s still important to have it checked once a year for buildup. Even if the signs aren’t as visible as a soot or creosote buildup, gas burning still produces chemical discharge that can eat away at the interior of your chimney, creating a dangerous situation for you and your family as gases may leak back into your home instead of being directed out of your chimney.
No matter what type of heating appliance you use, having it inspected and cleaned once a year is important for your family’s safety as well as keeping your appliance running efficiently. Give Chimney Concepts a call today to set up an appointment to have your fireplace, stove, or insert inspected and cleaned.
