A fireplace is lovely when the weather turns cooler. Not only does it add warmth to your home, but it gives the home a pleasant ambiance. To keep your fireplace in good working order, it needs to be cleaned regularly. Summer is the perfect time to schedule your fireplace cleaning in New Orleans.
Annual Fireplace Cleaning is a Must
When A Noble Sweep comes out to clean your fireplace, removing buildup materials is part of the process. Soot, creosote, and soot build up over time and can cause problems. Soot can disperse a strong fire odor if not taken care of properly. Creosote buildup leads to chimney fires. This is why a yearly fireplace cleaning is a must.
What You Can Do in Between Cleanings
Homeowners can be proactive in preventing problems with their fireplace in between the yearly cleanings. Here are some of the things that can be done:
- Vacuum your fireplace often
- Remove ash pit debris
- After each use, sweep and clean the fireplace
- Clean the firebox walls
Fireplaces are wonderful things, but if not maintained properly, they quickly become a fire hazard. Doing your part ensures you can enjoy your fireplace safely. A Noble Sweep does our part by providing fireplace cleaning in New Orleans.
