At Aura, recommend a yearly cleaning before using your chimney for the first time this season to ensure any left over debris from last year’s use has been removed and properly cleaned to prevent ventilation problems and potential fire hazards. Vintage and antique wood stoves and even the newest gas fireplaces have ventilation chimneys that are equally as important to have cleaned regularly. Whether you have a traditional chimney that vents up through the roof of your home, or a direct vent to the exterior of your home through a side wall, call Aura today for the best chimney cleaning Cypress has to offer.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that fireplaces be swept at ⅛ inch of soot buildup because this has been proven to be enough soot to cause a fire capable of damaging the chimney and even spreading to your home. Ultimately this means that if you use your fireplace decoratively and more frequently instead of using it for heat like you would north of Texas, that you may need to get your fireplace cleaned more frequently. This is also true for outdoor fireplaces that you use throughout the summer for hangouts with family and friends. If you’re not quite sure how much build up you have, call Aura today to get a free estimate on cleaning your chimney.
