LIVE LONGER WITH CLEAN AIR DUCTS
Chimney Cleaning Benefits
Protect your family by inspecting your chimney flue once a year. A chimney inspection will find any potential problems or blockages. Studies have shown that cleaning the creosote out of a flue will help your fireplace be more efficient and prevent a fire in the chimney which could spread to the home. Creosote holds heat and will cause the chimney to overheat and potentially hold fire inside the flue. The heat will cause damage to the brick mortar and cause your chimney to fall apart and allow gas to get inside the home. Buildup of creosote in a chimney will create heat beyond what the chimney flue was designed for. Cleaning the chimney with a hard brush will remove the buildup of debris
and keep your chimney safe and healthy.

Different types of woods can cause and quicken buildup of creosote in the flue. Burning a low grade wood such as cottonwood creates creosote in the chimney. When creosote builds up it will hold heat on the surfaces. This can cause flash fires anywhere in the flue. Heat can cause break down of the mortar in the joints as well. Cleaning the flue with a hard brush will remove the buildup and the fire danger is removed.
