Whether you use your chimney once or twice a year, or there’s a fire in the fireplace four or five nights a week during the Reston winter, annual chimney cleaning, repairs, and inspection is a standard part of smart homeownership, for several reasons.
Each year across the United States including right here in Northern Virginia, thousands of house fires can be directly attributed to dirty chimneys. All that soot and creosote builds up, creating the perfect environment for a chimney fire, which may leap to the rest of the house.
Creosote is highly flammable, being comprised of caked carboniferous material produced by the burning of wood in a wood stove or fireplace. Its existence is hazardous to your chimney’s health.
JCS Home Services of Reston VA has the right acumen, experience, and (most importantly) home-inspection equipment to perform a thorough chimney sweep, ensuring that your chimney is free of chemical accumulations that could cause a devastating, life-altering house fire.
When ash, soot, creosote, and other potential blockages begin to affect the flow of smoke from the wood stove or fireplace, up the chimney, and out of the house, the chimney’s smoke filter becomes less effective at filtering the air of harmful smoke particles. At that point your fireplace becomes a legitimate health and safety hazard.
Look for these warning signs of dirty air:
Those are serious symptoms. JCS Home Services’ Chimney Sweeps in Reston VA takes care of your family by making sure your chimney and fireplace – including chimney cap and air filters – are clean and in good repair for the winter season!
Carbon monoxide (CO) causes hundreds of deaths in the United States each year, and every instance is a tragedy that’s usually avoidable. Carbon monoxide is commonly produced in the burning of hydrocarbons such as wood, but it’s also a byproduct of gas fireplace models too. If your home does not have a CO detector plugged in with a working battery backup, you’re taking an unnecessary risk.
Lower that risk by making all necessary repairs and having a clean chimney. Hire JCS Home Services, the top chimney sweeps in the Reston VA service area.
