There’s nothing nicer than curling up in front of roaring fire in the fireplace with a good book, or heating your home affordably with a wood stove all winter long. However, fireplaces and woodstoves require regular maintenance to ensure both safety and efficiency.
Every year, an average of 22,300 residential structure fires occur because of problems with a fireplace, chimney, or chimney connector. That’s a loss of over $96,000,000 in residential property. In addition to the hazard of a fire, an improperly maintained chimney can even result in carbon monoxide poisoning. When a flue becomes so congested with creosote build-up that carbon monoxide released by a fire cannot exit through the chimney, the “silent killer” carbon monoxide is released throughout the home, resulting in sickness, hospitalization or even death. Each year, 170 people on average die from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, usually related to an improperly maintained ventilation system such as chimney or flue.
With proper upkeep and seasonal inspection, these tragedies can be avoided. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners have their chimneys inspected at least once a year. During the winter months, soot accumulates in chimneys and ventilation systems and requires professional cleaning to remove the build up.
During other seasons, birds and small animals such as squirrels use chimneys as cozy nooks for their nests. If you fire up your fireplace for the season without first checking that the flue is clear of debris, you may end up with a hose full of soot and smoke! Don’t let that happen to you. Call Chimney Sweep Boise and let us complete a routine inspection of your chimney, flue, and ventilation systems and perform any needed maintenance to ensure that your family enjoys cozy moments in front of the fire this winter season.

As defined by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the “chimney crown (also referred to as the chimney wash) is the top element of a masonry chimney. It covers and seals the top of the chimney from the flue liner to the chimney edge.” Over time, chimney crowns deteriorate and become damaged from water, high winds, etc. If allowed to weaken over time, chimney crowns can cause both exterior and interior damage to your home. When water leakage due to a faulty crown comes in contact with creosote build-up in the flue, a very offensive smell will fill your home. Save yourself the trouble and call Chimney Sweep Boise for an evaluation of your chimney crown.
