Most homeowners have very little knowledge about a chimney or venting systems. Chimneys are an integral part of a home heating system and require regular evaluation and maintenance. If homeowners understood this, the threat of chimney fires and unsafe indoor air quality conditions could be greatly reduced, and possibly be eliminated altogether. Why should you have your chimney cleaned or swept? Creosote (pictured to the side here)
is a substance that can burn at temperatures up to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit. It can have the same ignition temperature as a piece of paper. The creosote can then break loose, fly out of your chimney and ignite your home or possible fly far enough away to ignite your neighbors home. Flying debris out of your chimney is also a good reason to make sure you have a proper chimney cap with a spark arrestor screen on it to reduce this possibility.
