Chimney cleaning is as vital as ever
Have you ever had your chimney and fireplace cleaned? Regular cleaning is a vital maintenance step in keeping your home safe and your fireplace functioning properly. Creosote and soot build up over time and can eventually ignite, causing a chimney fire. Chimney cleaning will help keep your family safe and secure.
Your chimney cleaning and maintenance is necessary to keep the proper airflow as well. If your chimney is coated with too much soot and creosote and doesn’t get cleaned, smoke may start coming out of your fireplace and into your home. If this happens, you need your chimney cleaned soon.
At ProClean NJ Inc., we offer chimney and fireplace cleaning for very reasonable prices. Our customers keep having us back year after year. Chimney cleaning needs to take place once a year, generally at or before the beginning of the cold season. If your fireplace is your primary heat source, make sure to clean your chimney annually. Every time you light a fire in your fireplace, you create soot and creosote deposits in your chimney. It is far better to be safe and have it cleaned once a year.
The average time it takes to clean a chimney is around 30 minutes to an hour. Our technicians will assess your chimney and determine an approximate timeframe for you. Once they start cleaning, they will ensure the environment around the fireplace doesn’t get dirty by using blanket coverings. Once complete, they will remove any soot and creosote that remains, and leave your home as clean or cleaner than when they arrived.
