The Importance of Fireplace Cleaning
Living in the Northeast can be detrimental to your roofs, windows and especially your chimney and in turn, your fireplace. The damages caused to your chimney during the cold winter days and even in the summer heat can have an adverse effect on your fireplace as well. To begin with the importance of fireplace cleaning and repairing, you need to know the basics of fireplace maintenance.
A very common question is how often should you clean your fireplace and chimney. The National Fire Protection Association suggests that your fireplace, chimney and vents are inspected once a year and cleaning should be done dependent upon how often you use your fireplace. Especially in the winter months, you should go no more than a week without cleaning the base of your fireplace.
What To Know About Fireplace Repairs
When it comes to repairing your fireplace, there are several things you need to know and do before going through with the project:
- Firstly, the root cause of brick decaying in a fireplace occurs because of water seepage at the top of the chimney that ruins the mortar inside the fireplace. If you have a metal liner, it could result in rusting of that piece of equipment as well. Not only will your fireplace be in danger, but if your chimney has a leak, it can spread to other areas of your home.
- Regardless of usage, fireplaces may wear away over time. It is not something you should neglect. If you are having an issue with your chimney, you are more than likely going to need some sort of fireplace repair. While it may not be a repair that should be done immediately, always err on the side of caution, especially when it comes to the safety of your family.
- No matter what state your chimney or fireplace is in, if it needs a repair you should stop usage immediately and do not try and fix it yourself. Fireplace repair is a job that must be done by a professional as it is very easy to slip up and create a problem without knowing it.
