For Your Safety, Regularly Clean Your Wood-Burning Fireplaces and Stoves
At West Seattle Chimney Sweep Repair, we offer routine cleaning for any style fireplace or woodstove. Regular cleaning of your fireplace is important for efficiency and safety. Clogged vents can inhibit burning, increase the amount of carbon dioxide in your home, and create a highly combustible surface that could lead to a house fire. Our chimney, fireplace and stove cleaning service is intended to keep your stove and fireplace safe and in good working order.

How Often Should You Clean Your Fireplace or Stove?
The National Fire Protection Agency recommends doing a chimney sweep in seattle once a year to protect your home from a fire that originates from creosote build-up, but we believe that an optimal cleaning frequency could be more often depending on how you burn your wood. When winters are mild, like ours in Seattle, smaller fires are more common. Ironically, smaller fires tend to produce more of the creosote build-up that is dangerous to homeowners. With smaller, cooler fires the gases often do not exit the chimney flue before they condense into the combustible, tarry substance that coats the flue. The thicker this coating of creosote becomes the more likely it is to start a chimney fire or cause a disruption to your venting. Our chimney and fireplace professionals can advise you on your optimal cleaning frequency.
