With over 23,000 chimney fires annually proper care and maintenance is critical to avoid becoming a statistic. Wood stoves and fireplace Inserts should be serviced and Inspected EVERY year according to the National Fire Protection Association. The reason stoves and inserts build up more flammable creosote is because of their efficiency in transferring heat into the house. This creates a cooler exhaust causing the smoke containing creosote to condense and form on the inside. A cleaning and inspection should be performed annually by a Certified Chimney Sweep.
All of our sweeps are Certified and Royal Chimney has the most CSIA Certified sweeps in Wisconsin. Always insist the person coming out to service your chimney is CSIA Certified, they will be wearing a picture ID badge with their certification number on it.
