Keep Your Connecticut Home Safe and Warm with Routine Chimney Cleaning
Often neglected, the chimney can go unnoticed until a dangerous build-up causes a serious problem. You can save yourself a lot of time and hassle, while improving the performance of your fireplace, woodstove, or any other form of chimney system, by scheduling a chimney cleaning appointment.
Chimney cleaning, also known as chimney sweeping, involves the process of identifying and repairing structural weaknesses, removing debris that may be blocking your chimney and removing the deposits that accumulate in the hard-to-reach areas within the ducts, the flue, and the chimney walls.
The build-up within your chimney system isn’t just filthy, it is dangerous. As smoke ascends through the chimney, it cools and condenses, often causing a residue called creosote to form. Creosote is a flammable substance that can lead to chimney fires and may cause structural damage to the chimney.
Creosote can also cause harmful fumes, including carbon monoxide, to seep into the home. A chimney sweep clears your chimney system of this dangerous substance from increasing to hazardous amounts and allows your chimney to operate and ventilate cleanly and efficiently.
An annual chimney cleaning improves the entire functionality of your chimney system and will keep you and your loved ones safe.
Identify Major Problems Early Using an Annual Chimney Inspection
Caps & Dampers can perform an in-depth evaluation of your venting system, including hard-to-reach areas within the chimney walls and flue. During the inspection, we will identify safety hazards such as structural weaknesses, debris blocking your chimney. An annual chimney inspection uncovers issues that should be addressed to improve the functionality of your chimney system. Debris might be trapped in the flue, or the chimney may require cleaning. In order for your fires to burn cleaner and more efficiently, schedule your annual chimney inspection today.
When to Get Your Chimney and Fireplace Cleaning
Inspections don’t only have to take place when there’s something wrong with your chimney. In fact, they should occur on a regular annual basis. The best time to schedule your appointment is in the springtime. Prices are typically cheaper and you get someone out to your home a lot more easily. If you wait until September or October, you will likely have to sit behind a number of other appointments first.
When the time arrives, there’s no reason to wait. Get your Connecticut chimney where it needs to be before more toxic elements take root inside of it. Call on the #1 professional chimney sweeps in Connecticut to get the work done at a great price.

Preventative Chimney Measures You Can Take
Our chimney services go a long way in helping you get the results you need. That said, there are a few measures you can take to set yourself up for success throughout the year.
First of all, you can always try to inspect for creosote on your own by shining a light up into the chimney. If there’s a 1/4 inch build-up of creosote you should not use the fireplace again until it’s cleaned. A chimney fire could occur in seconds if you’re not careful.
Be sure to wear the right kind of protective material before examining the chimney. This includes a pair of goggles to go along with a standard disposable dust mask.
