Everyone enjoys the soft crackle of a hardwood fire and warmth that leaps from a fireplace on a cold December day, but few homeowners realize the importance of cleaning their chimneys. Every chimney requires regular maintenance. Something as simple as a bird’s nest blocking a gas-fired furnace flue is as dangerous as a highly flammable creosote deposits produced by a wood burning stove or fireplace.Every time you use your fireplace or stove, the burning wood deposits a thin layer of flammable creosote inside the chimney flue. If left unattended, these creosote deposits can accumulate to dangerous levels and erupt into flame without warning. The consequences can range from an unexpected chimney repair bill to a deadly house fire.The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that 23,600 residential fires in 1996 were were related to solid fuel appliances and heating equipment, such as furnaces, fireplaces and stoves.While creosote build-up causes most chimney fires, every chimney can pose danger to your home. Bird and animal nests, or even fallen leaves can block a chimney and direct deadly carbon monoxide from the furnace back into your home. In 1996, over 100 people died in their homes from carbon monoxide poisoning. Another 5,500 house fires resulted from chimneys and chimney connectors serving heating systems burning liquid and other fuels.SEVEN GOOD REASONS TO HAVE US SWEEP YOUR CHIMNEY1.

“Extremely knowledgeable, professional and clean. They are not finished yet, as they had to treat my chimney with a chemical to loosen the creosote and will be back on December 20, 2008 to clean it. I was very impressed with two gentlemen who came out to do the work. I have no reason to expect that their work in cleaning the chimney will be any less than their first visit to treat the creosote. I would highly recommend them.”
“This was my second time using Chadds Ford Chimney Sweep. We had our air ducts, dryer vent and chimney cleaned. Kevin was clean, prompt and efficient. I have white carpeting in the living room, and you would never know they were there cleaning soot and ash!”
“The quality of the service was very good. Mr. Knight looked at all four of our chimneys and only recommended that one be cleaned. Although he was running late, he was kind enough to call well in advance and was very professional. We will certainly use him in the future and feel lucky to have found such a great company to work with.”
