What the Experts Say About Chimney Sweeping Service

Most Colorado homes have some type of fireplace. Whether your home has a traditional wood-burning fireplace or an electrical fireplace, it’s smart to stay on top of maintenance.

The National Fire Protection Agency or NFPA 211 is the American National Standard for the construction of chimneys, fireplaces, vents, and solid fuel-burning appliances. It is a set of comprehensive resources of consensus-based guidelines for safe and professional design, installation, and maintenance in residential, commercial, and industrial properties.

The NFPA 211 recommends chimney cleaning on an annual basis to minimize the risk of a chimney fire.

What Does Chimney Cleaning Include?

When you schedule chimney sweep service with Goodrich Chimney, we clean and inspect the fireplace and chimney.

Goodrich Chimney - Chase Cover
  • Clean the chimney system, from the fireplace to the crown
  • Identify and remove creosote and soot
  • Inspect to look for damage, like cracks or water damage
  • Check for obstructions, like animal nests
  • Recommend any necessary chimney repairs

After the cleaning and assessment of your chimney, our technicians provide each client tips for better burning habits and ways to increase overall efficiency.

What Causes Creosote to Accumulate?

Creosote is a toxic type of debris that builds up in wood-burning fireplaces. If too much creosote accumulates on the inner chimney walls, it can cause clogs and impact proper airflow. In fact, unresolved creosote buildup is a leading cause of chimney fires.

The chimney sweep process clears away creosote buildup to improve the function of the fireplace. Reduce the risk of fires with creosote removal.

How Long Does a Chimney Sweep Take?

Chimney cleaning doesn’t take long. Plan around an hour per chimney flue. However, the amount of dirt and condition of the chimney can impact the standard timeframe.

The chimney inspection is also typically quick. For high roofs or poor conditions, the inspection may take longer. Overall, it’s beneficial and worth the time and effort to schedule chimney cleaning and inspection annually.
