A fireplace, understandably, might easily be the most comforting place in your house or property, especially when its freezing cold outside.It is an important part, and it is also a part that is constantly working at providing you comfort in the background. When you remember the comfort of your home, the place around the hearth also holds a special place.
Despite being an important part of your household, unfortunately, the fireplace ends up being neglected simply because all the action is happening within the confines of the fireplace and chimney. When damage is happening, you cannot see it immediately.
A fireplace has different components and these components need to be routinely maintained and cleaned up not just for optimal performance but also for the sake of safety. Many devastating fires are triggered merely because the fireplace is not cleaned.
Although many modern households these days have gas-powered fireplaces, many still use wood for the fire.
When wood is burned, creosote gets deposited inside the chimney lining. It is a sort of deposit that rises from the burning wood and gets settled within the smoke chamber and the chimney flue.
Over the time this deposit becomes inflammable and catches fire.
Even if it doesn’t catch fire, it chokes up the ventilation and may fill your room or apartment with toxic smoke, endangering the lives of your loved ones.
The cost of fireplace and chimney repair and maintenance compared to the cost of the safety of your family is nothing.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that fireplaces and chimneys be inspected for blockages and other repairs, at least annually.
Aside from creosote the blockage may occur due to animals and birds getting trapped inside the fireplace. Sometimes birds and small animals build their nests inside your chimney because of the warmth it provides.
Although it is easy to stop birds and small animals from entering your chimney through the roof by installing bird guards, if you have just recently installed the bird guards it would be prudent to get all the parts of your fireplace and the chimney thoroughly checked.
You can get your fireplace and chimney inspected by a professional masonry company at a very low cost, especially when not much repair work is required
Most of the fireplace and chimney related problems originate due to prolonged neglect.
