So this is somewhat embarrassing. I have never had my Chimney Cleaned since we bought our house.
I decided this was the year.
Here are a few reason why you should have your Chimney Cleaned Yearly
- Remove soot
- Remove built-up creosote
- Check for cracks
Built up Creosote forms a layer on the interior of the chimney. Over time, this can build up and restrict the flow. Worse, the Creosote can catch fire, resulting in intense heat that can spread and potentially catch your home on fire. Not Good.
So, I called Chuck First Chimney Sweep. He used to own the Fireplace shop by the 49rs Tavern on PCH and Bellflower.
Chuck rolled up to the house on his bicycle with all his equipment. It was a total Mary Poppins Experience. Chuck was super nice, did a great job and left everything spotless
