Bi-Annual Chimney Cleaning Checklist
Regular chimney cleaning is essential to ensure the safety and efficiency of your fireplace. This bi-annual checklist includes a thorough inspection of all chimney components, starting with a visual check for any signs of damage or wear. The chimney cap and flashing should be inspected to ensure they are securely in place and free of debris. The flue should be checked for any blockages or buildup of creosote, and the damper should be inspected to ensure it is functioning properly. The firebox and hearth should be checked for any debris or buildup of ash, and the chimney liner should be inspected for any cracks or damage. Finally, the chimney crown and exterior should be inspected for any signs of damage or wear. Following this checklist will help keep your chimney in good condition and prevent potential hazards.
