How often should you clean your chimney?

Here st Safeway Chimney Sweeps, your safety is our main concern. We are in business to keep you, your family and your home safe when it comes to your fireplace. Here’s an excerpt from a Today article.

“Before the cool, crisp days of autumn make cozy evenings in front of the fireplace irresistible, take time to make sure your fireplace is as safe as it is inviting. A 2016 report from the National Fire Protection Association states that a leading factor contributing to home heating fires was the failure to clean chimneys.

Not usually a DIY chore, it’s best to hire a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep to tackle this job, recommends Ashley Eldridge, education director for Chimney Safety Institute of America. That’s because cleaning and inspecting chimneys involves a lot more than just sweeping soot.”
