Before using your chimney for the first time this season, we recommend you have it cleaned to ensure any debris left over from last year’s use has been removed and properly cleaned to prevent ventilation problems and potential fire hazards. Vintage and antique wood stoves have the same risks that a wood burning fireplace does; even the newest gas fireplaces have a ventilation chimney that is equally as important to have cleaned regularly, whether it is a traditional chimney that vents up through the roof of your home, or if it’s a direct vent to the exterior of your home through a side wall. Call Aura today for the best chimney cleaning Katy 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. You can check out more information from the Chimney Safety Institute of America by checking out their website at https://www.csia.org/ . Ultimately this means that if you use your fireplace decoratively and more frequently instead of using it for heat like you would in a northern state 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. If you’re not quite sure how much build up you have, call Aura today to get a free estimate on cleaning your chimney.
