Whether you use your fireplace, insert or stove once a year or one-hundred times a season, annual maintenance and cleaning is strongly recommended.
According to the National Fire Analysis & Research division of the National Fire Protection Association, more than half of all fireplace and chimney fires in 2006-2010 were as a result of neglect and failure to clean. These fires resulted in millions of dollars’ worth of damages and injured thousands. Some of these fires even resulted death. The saddest thing about these numbers is that the fires could have easily been prevented.
Annual sweeping conducted by a certified professional is recommended by:
Sweeping not only helps keep staining and creosote deposits at bay, it helps to ensure that all parts of the appliance and chimney are working properly and efficiently. With each sweeping, a Magic Broom professional evaluates creosote deposit levels; checks all internal and external parts for damages or flaws; inspects the flue for obstructions or damage; and evaluates the condition of the crown, cap, and flashing located outside of the home. He or she will also check the system for proper installation. After cleaning the system, we will inform the homeowner of any and all damages or concerns within the system, and make the proper recommendations for repairs and optimum efficiency. Whether your system is one year old or one hundred years old – professional sweeping should be an annual occurrence in your home.
