With winter ending, Montgomery County residents might be done with their fireplaces for the season. However, now is a great time to get your chimney cleaned and make sure it’s safe for next year.
Many people don’t realize that chimneys and fireplaces need regular maintenance. Chimneys are constantly exposed to harsh environments resulting in cracks. Additionally, smoke going through the chimney can result in a build-up of creosote over time. This black, flaky residue builds up along the inner surfaces of the chimney, and is highly flammable and combustible, meaning that it dramatically increases your fire hazard risk in your home. Failure to clean a dirty chimney is one of the leading factors contributing to home heating fires.
