How Often Should You Clean Your Chimney

- Friday, August 06, 2010
There's really no general rule to how often chimneys should be cleaned, however a thorough chimney inspection will help determine if chimney cleaning is to be done.  This should be done once a year in general.

After a while creosote, the residue from burning wood, will start to form around the interior walls of the chimney, a build up of 1/8 of an inch or more requires cleaning.  

It's important to keep your chimney clean not only for efficiency, but to also preventing the built-up creosote from catching fire resulting in a flue fire.  These fires can be very dangerous.

Although there are many do-it-yourself cleaning equipment to handle chimney cleaning, it's also best to consult with professional chimney cleaners.
