Do you remember the last time a professional sweep thoroughly cleaned your chimney? If it's been more than 12 months, it's time to schedule a chimney sweep service to reduce the risk of fire and exposure to harmful contaminants. Twin City Fireplace has some of the most experienced chimney technicians and masonry repair professionals serving Minnesotans in the Twin Cities Area.
Why You Need a Chimney Sweep Service in Minneapolis?
Minnesotans in Blaine, Plymouth, Bloomington, MN, and throughout the Twin Cities area use their fireplace more frequently than others due to our long, cold, and icy winters. As a result, chimney sweeping is the most critical task a homeowner using a fireplace or stove can do to prevent a chimney fire and exposure to suffocating carbon monoxide gas.
Our experienced chimney and masonry professionals have extensive training and expertise to ensure compliance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) industry standards and codes adopted by federal, state, and local building and fire safety regulations.
Preventing a Devastating Chimney Fire
“Clean chimneys don’t catch fire,” said the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) in a Chimney Fire Precautions fact sheet. That's why FEMA, NFPA, and fire safety experts recommend homeowners have a professional chimney sweep inspect the chimney annually with cleaning and repairs when necessary.
Although gas-heating appliances produce creosote, it’s minimal compared to a wood-burning fireplace or stove. So, what is creosote? It's a naturally created byproduct of combustion. The substance, comprised chiefly of carbon and tar, sticks to the interior walls, flue, and components as smoke and exhaust vent out the top of the stack.
However, more creosote piles up every time you light the fireplace or stove. Without regular sweeping, it eventually turns into a thick, tarry, charcoal-like substance that is highly flammable and challenging to remove. To make matters worse, animal nests, leaves, twigs, and other debris are also flammable. So, it's not a matter of if but when you will have a chimney fire.
