This is the number
one chimney  
question chimney
sweeps are asked,
especially in
Jacksonville, FL
where we don't use
our fireplaces and/or
chimneys as much
as colder climates.
 
Additionally here in
Florida we
sometimes can't
remember how often
burned in our
fireplace last year, so we let it go and burn again.  The Chimney Safety Institute of
America and the National Fire Protection Association both say you should have a
chimney sweep clean your chimney and inspect your chimney once a year or more
depending on use.  In fact the Consumer Product Safety Commission's statistics
show an average of 25,100 chimney fires responsible for 30 deaths and $126.1
million in property damage each year.  The chimney industry standard is that when a
pre-fab chimney flue has a sooty build up that is 1/8 inch thick it is time for a chimney
sweep.  A masonry chimney can go a little longer, but needs a chimney sweep at 1/4
inch thick sooty build up.   Here in Jacksonville, FL our chimney sweeps follow this
chimney standard. Therefore a pre-fab chimney should have a chimney sweep every
7-10 fires and a masonry chimney needs to have a chimney sweep every 15-18 fires.  
Of course that estimate depends on how long you burn in your fireplace, what type of
fuel you use and several other factors.  In Jacksonville, FL we see lots of homes
where they burn pine in their fireplaces which needs a chimney sweep much more
often.  For safety's sake if you're in doubt have your chimney checked by a chimney
sweep before you light a fire in the fireplace. Remember if it doesn't need a chimney
sweep we'll only charge you for the chimney inspection.*

A chimney sweep is affordable maintenance on your home.  There's no reason to forget about your chimney,
even in Jacksonville, FL where we don't use our fireplaces and chimneys as often as colder states.  A chimney needs to be
cleaned by a chimney sweep at least once a year, more depending on use.  Even if you don't use your chimney you should get a
chimney inspection every other year.  And if you don't use your chimney often, you would be surprised how a few fires in the
fireplace can add up.  Most people don't realize how many times they have used their chimney between chimney cleanings.  All
those "let's have a fire in the fireplace just this once" adds up.  Also chimney parts up top can rust over time causing damage to
your home or unsafe chimney burning conditions.  Rusty or broken chimney dampers can allow expensive air conditioning and
heat to leak out of your home, and in Jacksonville, FL we worry a lot about lowering our air conditioning bill.  It is much more
affordable to repair your chimney damper than to pay those expensive utility bills every month.   A maintained chimney adds
comfort, charm and lots of resale value to your home - home buyers love a wood burning fireplace.  A chimney is either a
forgotten hole in your roof or a well maintained asset to your home.  Don't  just hope,
know your chimney is maintained, safe
and not costing you extra money.  Call today for your affordable yearly chimney inspection from a professional chimney sweep.*
Not maintaining your chimney is much more costly than an affordable chimney sweep.  Don't let tough
economic times here in Jacksonville, FL tempt you to put off your yearly chimney cleaning and chimney inspection by a chimney
sweep.   Even small water leaks from your chimney top can rot away your wood and drywall.  Broken chimney dampers let air
conditioning blow money right out of your house through your chimney!  Cracks in the chimney flue allow poisonous gases like
carbon monoxide to seep from smoke in your chimney into your home.  Dangerous soot and creosote build up in your chimney
puts your family and home at risk of fire and the unspeakable.  The most affordable way to handle these conditions is to make
sure they don't happen in the first place with an affordable chimney sweep.  Have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a
chimney sweep today.  Of course cost is an important factor for all of us.  Ash Away Chimney Sweeps serving Jacksonville, FL
