Ash Way Chimney Jacksonville Florida
The reason your chimney
needs a chimney sweep
is because the smoke
produced by your fire has
tiny unburned but
flammable solid particles
and oils from the wood
which adhere to the walls
of your chimney flue
called soot.
 This soot is what
we take out of the chimney during
a chimney cleaning.  Over time the
Chimney Sweep Chimney Clean Diagram Jacksonville Florida
soot in your chimney is refined by heat and becomes an extremely flammable material
called creosote.  A lot of people don't realize the creosote in their chimney is flammable,
and all it takes is a tine spark or ember to ignite the creosote and start a
chimney fire, where the actual walls of your chimney flue are on fire.  Chimney fires burn
at over 2,000 degrees and can easily spread to the rest of your house.  You need a
chimney sweep to remove the creosote from your chimney flue.  Chimneys and pipes
like the ones on wood stoves are designed for smoke to pass through at relatively low
temperatures; they are not built to withstand chimney fires which can burn at 2,000
degrees.  A chimney fire can collapse a masonry chimney by destroying the mortar.  In a
pre-fab chimney the high heat can cause the metal to warp or separate allowing the fire
to spread to the rest of your home.  Soot build up in your chimney also reduces the flow
of air out of the chimney flue and the chance of smoke coming back in the house is
increased.  Soot that is left on the walls of your chimney flue after extensive use
hardens into extremely flammable and corrosive third stage creosote.   Only a chimney
sweep can remove the soot from the chimney flue.  Even in Jacksonville, FL where
chimneys are not used as often soot can build up in your chimney flue over time and
one spark can cause a chimney fire that can start a house fire.  For safety's sake have a
chimney sweep clean and inspect your chimney and fireplace every year.*

Besides cleaning your chimney a chimney sweep will also perform a chimney
inspection.  It is good to have the condition of your chimney checked every year by a
chimney sweep to make sure your chimney is in safe condition and that the top seal of
your chimney is in good condition to protect your home from the elements.  The
chimney sweep will be checking to make sure that your chimney is safe for burning
fires, including if your chimney needs a chimney sweep.  If your chimney doesn't need a
chimney sweep Ash Away Chimney Sweep will not perform a chimney sweep and will
not charge you for the chimney sweep, only for the chimney inspection.  The chimney
sweep will also check up on the roof and make sure that your chimney is sealed and
secure from the elements.  The chimney sweep is checking for rust and general
deterioration on the chimney parts on top of your house to make sure there is no where
on your chimney where water can visibly leak into your home.  The chimney sweep will
also check to see how energy efficient your chimney is.  The chimney sweep will make
sure that your chimney's damper properly closes your chimney and doesn't allow air
conditioning to escape out of your chimney.  An open, broken or missing chimney
damper is like leaving two windows wide open.  A properly installed chimney damper
can save $30-$40 off your Jacksonville, FL utility bill every month.*   
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
