The Importance of Cleaning Your Chimney
Cleaning chimneys at regular intervals (1-2 times per year) is essential to ensure safe fireplace conditions because dirty ones may cause poisonous gases to fill your home instead of being vented. If the chimney is not cleaned regularly, soot, leaves, and debris develop. This hampers the airflow to and from the fireplace, which can cause continuous smokiness within your home. Additionally, dirty chimneys can potentially be fire hazards and should be inspected to ensure the safety of your home.

The chimney cleaning services offered by AirDuct King include several steps of thorough inspection to determine what type of cleaning your chimney requires. During a basic inspection, the technician will verify whether or not the structure of your chimney is still solid. He will also check the chimney for deposits of inflammable materials and other obstructions. According to the NFPA or the National Fire Protection Association, you should have a thorough chimney inspection at least once a year. Our technicians may feel the need to check the rooms near the heating system. They may also carry out pressure or smoke tests on the chimney to ensure that it is in perfect working condition. These steps are performed mainly in the following situations:
1. If the technician suspects that the chimney might be damaged due to an external event
2. If you have recently changed the fuel
3. If you have started living in a house equipped with chimney
4. If you have recently installed a heating system in your house
