SAFETY INSTITUTE RECOMMENDATIONS

The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that open masonry fireplaces should be swept at 1/8″ of sooty buildup, and sooner if there is any glaze present in the system. This is considered to be enough fuel buildup to cause a chimney fire capable of damaging the chimney or spreading to the home. Factory-built fireplaces should be swept when any appreciable buildup occurs. The logic is that the deposit is quite acidic and can shorten the life of the fireplace.

As part of your annual inspection service with Structure Serve we perform a full sweep of the fireplace and venting system!

At Structure Serve our focus is your safety. Having the proper inspections performed on your chimney and venting systems is essential! According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 211 says, Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.” Supplemental to our inspection services we make sure that with every sweep performed we include an inspection.

UNDERSTANDING THE RISK OF CHIMNEY FIRES

There’s nothing better than enjoying the cozy ambiance and radiating warmth of a roaring fire in your fireplace on a cool night. But before you fire up for the season, make sure that your chimney is clean and ready. A dirty chimney is fertile fuel for a fire, and you may not even realize what is happening. It is imperative that you hire a professional chimney sweep to make sure your chimney is safe!
