Improved Safety and Efficiency
If you have ever noticed a black or brown tar-like or shinny substance in your chimney, you know what creosote is. Every year, more than 25,000 houses suffer from a chimney fire that was caused by creosote. This combustion byproduct that builds up in chimneys is highly flammable. High temperatures in the flue or a stray spark can ignite it. The National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners with a fireplace have at least one professional chimney cleaning a year to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
Our customers in Dubuque know to give us a call if they have a problem with a smoky chimney. It can be dangerous when your chimney is not venting properly. Carbon monoxide in the smoke can buildup in your home instead of venting outside leading to a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you call on us, we will pinpoint the problem and fix it so that you don’t have to worry. You should notice fewer draft problems and longer lasting fires after a cleaning.
